For $135 you get a much improved aesthetic over the original RG350, as well as a 640×480 display and new low profile analog sticks. The RG350M is currently available in a space gray aluminium alloy shell, and looks amazing for it.
Whilst it can’t hold a candle to the power of the Odroid-Go Advance, the RG350M is probably the best of the Ingenic JZ4770 devices in terms of design and functionality – and it certainly still has its place in the retro handheld arena.
There’s no word of a plastic shell version of this revamped model yet. In fact the “M” implies it may only be metal, but I wouldn’t be too surprised to see plastic shells pop up in the coming weeks or months. For now, head on over to AliExpress to check out the heavy metal beast in all its glory.
Which store to go for? Just go with whichever is cheapest on the day, prices will probably vary now that the RG350M is officially released.
