Meet Gole F1, the Mini PC with a built-in 5 inch screen
After successfully raising way more than they pledged on their Indiegogo campaign, Gole is now releasing the Gole1 Mini PC (now known as Gole F1) to the general public.
Gole F1 is certainly an interesting device, which comes with a built-in battery and a 5 inch screen.

Powered by an Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 SoC, Gole F1 dual-boots Windows10 and Android 5.1 and promises 2 hours of battery life thanks to the 2600 mAh battery.
