FX Technology Limited has announced that it will be selling a third-party screen upgrade for the Steam Deck called the DeckHD that bumps the device’s display resolution up to 1920×1200 and offers 74% coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. The original Steam Deck display, in comparison, offers a 1280×800 resolution and 45% coverage of the AdobeRGB color space, and while there are some similarities between the two screens, including IPS technology, 400 nits of brightness, and a 60 Hz refresh rate, all DeckHD units come standard with anti-glare coating, a premium feature that Valve has reserved for its highest-end Steam Deck units. Users may join the waitlist to be notified once the DeckHD display, which is estimated to cost $99, becomes available.
