PiBoy XRS: A Great Handheld Gaming Option Coming In February 2022

I'm interested in the PiBoy CM4x which is expected to release in February but the strange 1:1 screen is a little odd. Experimental Pi also has the PiBoy XRS releasing but with a smaller 3.5" 640x480 screen which is more geared towards most retro gaming platforms. The price on the XRS is $149.95 + the cost of a Pi board which isn't too bad. The XRS is definitely on my radar and high on  the top 10 list upcoming handheld options. Technical specs and images below... Other Upcoming Handhelds:

  PiBoy CM4X Expected Release: February 2022 It definitely looks a bit different than I was expecting and not even close to the original renders. Kind of a strange screen size (4" 720x720) but it could work great with a range of platforms. No word on exact price yet!  To keep an eye on developments with this handheld I highly suggest subscribing to ETAPRIME on YouTube where this handheld will likely be heavily covered. VS.
