***Update August 4: The Retroid Pocket 3 pre-order is now expected to start today: GoRetroid.com .  [9PM EST] 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 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.  KT-R1C SPECS 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

 It looks like the KT-R1C is getting closer and closer to finally becoming real. According to Lei on the RGHANDHELDS.COM Discord, the approximate weight for the metal variety will be around 320g. I would have preferred Stacked Shoulders myself but this might still be a pretty awesome pocketable option!  When it becomes available for pre-order, more info should appear on their site:  https://ktr.la/shop Below are some new production images of the handheld assembled with an aluminum shell (colors are not final):

5 Upcoming Retro Game Handhelds: Quick Notes

5 Upcoming Retro Game Handhelds I'm Most Likely To Buy  Things are moving almost too fast to keep up with these days in the game handheld arena. A lot of upcoming options aren't really "retro handhelds" and are more like powerful handheld PCs, but they can be used just like a retro handheld so I'll count it. All in all, I have 5 upcoming handhelds high up on my radar.  Here's some quick notes and links on my choice of upcoming handhelds to keep an eye on in the near future... (Some Specs are Speculative Until Final Product Occurs). Having a Steam Deck also really lowers my need for the real powerful handhelds, so I'm likely to focus a lot on budget stuff over the next year... Game Handhelds I'm 100% Definitely Buying:  #1 Retroid Pocket 3 (RP3) RP3 Same Power as the RP2+ But With Potentially More RAM Android 9 Handles Up To PSP/Dreamcast With No Problem and Can Dabble in PS2/GameCube/Wii Emulation With OK Results With Some Games  4.7" 16:9 IPS Tou
