Valve shares a preview of the Steam Deck’s package design prototype.
A quick Steam Deck update for you all - our DV units have arrived! We'll be using these for additional testing and for developer kits, but we also took some nice sneak preview photos of what the final packaging will look like.— Steam Deck (@OnDeck) December 2, 2021

In addition to that, every device will also be coming with its own USB C power supply adapter. This implies that one would not have to hunt for an adapter, as is the case with many smartphones. Moreover, the box also has quite a few Easter Eggs, as well. We found a few, let us know how many were you able to find out.
According to Valve, “We’ve recently completed our DV (Design Validation) manufacturing build of Steam Deck, and we’ll be using these units for additional testing and developer kits”. The company further states that, “After this build, there will be additional minor changes in the final product”. Additionally, they stated, “before we start sending these out to developers, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of the final packaging that customers will see in February”.
Valve Had Earlier Announced That The Steam Deck Would Start Shipping From February, 2022
In November, 2021, Valve had, in a blog post, cited the global supply chain issues and material shortages, missing parts and logistical challenges being the reason behind why the company had decided on pushing the initial release date to February, 2022. The company had then held a Developers’ Event to provide more insight into its latest handheld gaming PC.
