If you're a fan of all of these new retro handhelds but don't quite have the budget for them, then we might just have the thing for you today. RGhandhelds today revealed the Retro Pixel Pocket, a little Game Boy-esque machine with four buttons and a clear casing that is just what it says it is — pocket-sized!
The console is being produced by modding website FunnyPlaying and, while it's still in the early stages of development, we can see the kind of aesthetic the company is going for just from the prototype RGhandhels is showing off above.
Retro Dodo has shared more details about the Game Boy Pocket-inspired console, which takes inspiration from similar consoles like the Analogue Pocket. Retro Dodo believes the console is running on Android 7.1, which is an incredibly stable operating system. But the real selling point of the system is the price, which the producer is attempting to build the console as a sub-$100 handheld. Phwoar!
If that's not enough for you, here are all the features and specs of the console:
- 1.3GHZ Quad-Core AllWinner A64 CPU
- Mali-400 MP2 GPU
- 1GB RAM
- 3.1″ IPS Display (720 x 720)
- 3000MAH Battery
- 8GB Internal Storage
- USB-C Charging
- MicroSD Slot
The console is due to launch in August or September, according to RGhandhelds, but these projects can take time. And, considering this could potentially emulate PlayStation games alongside Game Boy, Neo Geo, Game Gear, Mega Drive, and GBA games!
