JSAUX were getting close to release another (yes, another) Steam Deck Docking Station, this time with RGB lighting around the bottom but due to a "leak" and a competitor "copying" it they have cancelled it and will re-do it.
Outlined in a blog post, JSAUX mentioned: "Today we are here to announce some irritating and disappointing news. In the past few months, we were dedicated to develop and test a new RGB Steam Deck Dock long awaited by our fans, and we are almost to release it. Unfortunately, someone leaked and copied our development scheme.".
They sent out samples to select few outlets to try it and give feedback, with GamingOnLinux (hello) being one of them.
In the blog post, JSAUX showed off what they say are shots of them designing it back in July, along with a patent application for it.
According to JSAUX, an unnamed company reached out to various Steam Deck content creators and told them about their RGB Dock. JSAUX caught wind of this, investigated and claim they found it was the factory they were using that leaked their files on it thus allowing a competitor to make it and so they have now "terminated the cooperation" with said factory.
As a result, the current design has been cancelled. However, for RGB fans, the good news is that JSAUX will still be doing it but "will start with a completely new look with different lighting effects".
I reached out to the company in question (who I won't name, since JSAUX didn't either), since I know who it was, and they simply denied it completely.
