The Ockel Sirius 6, a new 6-inch mini PC, is scheduled for a November 2017 release. As it swiftly approaches, its developer, Ockel Computers, is getting ready by adding a few final polishes to this interesting piece of hardware.

The Ockel Sirius A is being developed in the Netherlands with funds from IndieGoGo. Even though the funding campaign is over now, the device is still available for pre-order. So far, the company raised $659,513. 

This device is as big as your average 6-inch smartphone but features all the capabilities of a Windows 10 computer. When it comes to hardware specs, the Ockel Sirius A sports an Intel Atom X7 processor, 4/8GB of RAM, an Intel GPU with full 4K support, and a 6-inch 1080P HD screen. 

However, there’s no SIM card slot, which means you’ll only be able to use this device as an actual computer. As far as we know, the developer won’t be adding a SIM card slot in the future. On the other hand, the Ockel Sirius A features of a fingerprint scanner, another holdover from smartphones. 

When it comes to ports, this device features basically everything you need on a regular PC including a Display port, HDMI, USB Type-C, LAN, Micro SD, and USB 3.0. There are also the latest WiFi AC and Bluetooth technologies. And finally, its 3,000 mAh battery will be enough to power the device for up to 3 hours. 

At first look, the device looks quite interesting, but we’ll see how customers will receive it. If everything goes well, the Ockel Sirius 6 will make its way to our list of the best mini PCs you can get.

The Ockel Sirius A should be available this November with a starting price of $549 for the cheapest model. You can already pre-order it via IndieGoGo.
