PIX NII is a mini pocket PC powered by an Intel Pentium N6005 processor (Crowdfunding)

The PIX NII Pocket Mini PC features an Intel Pentium N6005 Gemini Jasper Lake processor which should provide a nice upgrade from existing 2.4-inch mini PCs based on Gemini Lake processors such as Larkbox.

The small computer is slightly larger (2.7 × 2.6 inches) than previous 2.4-inch models, but comes with up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB NVMe SSD and offers two 4K-capable HDMI 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi 6 connectivity, plus a few USB 3.2 ports, plus a 3.5mm audio jack.

The specifications only list Windows 10/11 operating systems, but the company also mentions Ubuntu and Linux support in the description.

Three models are offered on Indiegogo with the following configuration and pricing options:

  • $159 for 8GB RAM, 512GB SATA SSD (retail: $259)
  • $219 for 8GB RAM, 1TB SATA SSD (retail: $359)
  • $249 for 16GB RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD (retail: $399)

Shipping adds an additional $15 to the total cost, and rewards should begin shipping by December 2022. As noted by Liliputing, this is PIXCORE’s first crowdfunding campaign, and although they have a working demo, the hardware has not been finalized. yet, so there could still be delays. Given the similar design of all these pocket PCs, I wouldn’t be surprised if one showed up with an Intel Pentium N6000 processor on Amazon or Aliexpress before December.
