Game handheld releases are hard to predict due to supply chain problems and parts shortages, so most release dates should be considered tentative not concrete.
August 2022 In Game Handheld Releases
KT-R1C (aka KT R1C) is currently on pace for the metal versions to possibly be ready for pre-order by mid-month and ship out in September. There is no firm date set as of now. This handheld has quickly made it to the top of my most wanted device list recently.
Other August Retro Game Handheld Happenings
The Miyoo Mini V2/V3 shortage continues but Miyoo is expected to do another restock on the Official Store mid-month. FYI: There's no difference between the V2/V3 other than the V3 shipping out with a more updated firmware.
Possible Pre-Order Appearances
The Miyoo P60 was expected to already be out by appears to be in some sort of software testing hell loop. Information from Miyoo has been very minimal, so I wouldn't count on the highly anticipated P60 being available this month but it's possible.
The Retroid Pocket 3 seems to be on pace for some type of full reveal in the near future. We've seen a tiny glimpse of the prototype Taki has and it looks sleek. Rumors are swirling that it might not have the same SoC as the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus as originally expected.
I find it unlikely that the RP3 pre-order becomes available this month but I'm sure we'll hear something about it soon.
[UPDATE: The Retroid Pocket 3 Pre-Order was announced to start on August 4 9PM EST!!
