Retroid Pocket 2 Plus: First In-Depth Look by Taki (YouTube)

Screenshot from Taki's RP2 Plus Video (YouTube) If you have any interest in the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus ($99), you definitely need to check out Taki's latest in-depth YouTube video! The stock Firmware looks like a huge improvement this time around and it should be a lot easier to setup than the original RP2 which was on the difficult side for setup. Add in improved buttons, a drastically more powerful processor, Android 9 optimization, and a touchscreen, I really don't see any reason to not buy this handheld at $99.  For $99 ... at least on paper, this is the best thing that has happened in the budget priced handheld realm in a while...  The RP2 Plus can be pre-ordered now for $99 + Shipping! Units are expected to ship out by December.  https://www.goretroid.com/products/retroid-pocket-2-plus-handheld-retro-gaming-system

KT R1 Vaporware or In Production?

Possibly just Vaporware but there's a new device making waves in the rumor circkes.... the  KT R1, 4" 800x600 screen with specs that sound like they'll run Dreamcast emulation smoothly but at the supposed price tag of $200. The console looks like a knockoff of the Retroid Pocket 2 with the left thumstick above the d-pad.  I haven't seen anything to indicate that even a test model had been produced so I wouldn't hold my breathe on this actually happening and the $200 Rumored price point might be a bit steep to get much action.  If you have any info on this device,  feel free to drop it in the comments.  SOC: amlogic s922x RAM: lddr4 2g / 4g STORAGE: emmct5.1 16-128g & tf slot NET:: wifi5 & BT OS: 64 bit Android 9 with Vulkan SCREEN: 4 "800x600 4: 3 BATTERY: 5000mah, 25w fast charge CONTROLLER : full buttons with lr3 VIBRATION: linear resonant actuator SPEAKER: dual speakers SIZE: 153 x 76 x 18 mm
