For the full intro & my initial Back Layout design for the new V, please click (tap) here, hiding contents helps people quickly get the core idea.
Have you ever wondered ‘how an eye-catching 2-in-1 device could look like’ or ‘how the components could be arranged within a 2-in-1 to make it fit your needs’? When I hold devices in my hands, a vision about a fantastic 2-in-1 device appears in my mind. I believe it could be the perfect device for myself, though no average manufacturers customise their next-gen device accordingly to be just right for me.
With the currently ongoing crowd-development of the new V, we see a great chance to put our thoughts about the perfect 2-in-1s into an actual shape. However, the new V has to be constructed based on the demands of most community members and foreseeable technologies. Creativity has no limits, and the same applies to our beloved design ideas of 2-in-1s. I create this concept topic aim to provide a new place for our community to show off and discuss design ideas about 2-in-1s (certainly include the new V) without disrupting the main development threads.
I want to introduce my design concept of an upgradability-focused back layout of the new V.
Top features: Support for up to 8TB of upgradable storage through two 2280 M.2 slots, upgradable RAM up to 32GB (16GB changeable + 16GB soldered) ~12mm bezel size. Moreover, this design keeps the best cooling mechanisms of the WORKHOUSE.
Weakness: A trimmed battery size compare with its predecessor.
(Please click the picture and view the full size to solve the blurry issue.)
- Battery size solution: (Sacrifice upgradability) Use purely soldered RAM, and opt for an onboard WiFi & Bluetooth chip.

Ports & Exterior:
3 USB-C Ports (separated, include one TB3 / USB4, one USB 3.2 & one charging only Type-C),
2 USB-A Ports (combined),
3.5mm Headphone Jack,
Full-sized SD Card Reader,
Power button & Integrated Fingerprint reader,
Front & Back camera (with IR),
Dual 2280 M.2 Slots support up to 4TB / 8TB,
Up to 32GB (16GB upgradable) SODIMM,
Upgradable WiFi 6 & Bluetooth 5.0,
Motherboard Heatsink & Coating.
