Hot on the heels of the ZPG Pro announcement, here comes news of another machine due soon. The RG351P is another handheld based on the OGA hardware, and using a similar shell as the RG350.
Just when things become a bit predictable, out comes something a little bit weird looking. The CoolBaby RS3128 (aka the RS-63 apparently) is a rather rugged looking Android handheld, although it’s probably not recommended to test that theory.
The original ZPG was a DIY handheld that used the guts of a cell phone for its mainboard. It was mostly the work of Lao Zhang, he made use of Vita controls and the motherboard of a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact to create the device. The ZPG was released in very small batches to the Chinese market, and was almost impossible for Westerners to buy.
It’s always been rumoured that the ZPG was leading up to something else, and that rumour has just been substantiated. Over on the Chinese forums God of light and darkness (cool name) is posting short teaser videos pertaining to a ZPG Pro.
It seems to be a new trend these days to release revised aluminium versions of every handheld. The RK2020 is the latest to be fitted out with a fancy new shell, and this new revision also has a few other improvements made to it too.
The Retroid Pocket 2 is the most recent handheld from MooreChip Technologies. It’s a rethink of their Retroid Pocket (aka Super Retro Handheld aka PowKiddy A19) from late last year, with some improvements.
The PowKiddy V90 quietly appeared on AliExpress a few weeks ago now. Styled after the GBA SP, this little clamshell handheld piqued some interest due in part to its smart looking design and low price. Read on for the PowKiddy V90 review.
They’re coming thick and fast now! PowKiddy are the latest brand to hop on the hype train with their re-imagining of HardKernel’s Odroid-Go Advance. The new PowKiddy RGB10 is yet another OGA clone just released. It bears a striking resemblance to the Q90 released earlier this year, but of course this time it’ll be powered by RockChip’s RK3326.
I know I’m late to the party with this one, but it would be a shame to not review the RG350M. Some of the recent reviews on this site haven’t been what you would call glowing, and it’s rare that you come across a handheld quite as good as this. So to prove I’m not just an old stick in the mud who likes to whinge, have a read of some nice things I have to say in the Anbernic RG350M review.
Out of nowhere, the PowKiddy V90 has popped up on AliExpress today. Rumour has it that the PowKiddy V90 is the same hardware as the original PocketGo, but made to fit inside a clamshell reminiscent of the GBA SP.
