PowKiddy Advertises The RGB20S As Having WiFi. Apparently It Doesn't!

Apparently the PowKiddy RGB20S does not have WiFi despite PowKiddy advertising it as having 2.4G/5G WiFi. RetroGameCorps posted a photo showing no Wifi chip inside... just a WiFi switch on the outside. Multiple sources have stated identical findings... Personally, I already decided I'm not even going to mess around with the RGB20S especially after just coming off the underwhelming RGB10S.  I don't like the look, or the design and really have no remote need in testing out more RK3326 devices. This WiFi issue is just another reason to avoid it I think. It's a downgrade from the RGB20.  https://twitter.com/RetroGameCorps/status/1530393613200289792 As you can see in their marketing photos, PowKiddy certainly pushes the device as having WiFi:

PowKiddy RGB20S Has Been Released

  The PowKiddy RGB20S has released but I'm going to safely assume that it's a bit of a downgrade from the original RGB20 just like the RGB10S was an uninspired slapped together upgrade that was really a step backwards.  I was going to do a review on the RGB10S but it's such an underwhelming experience, I decided to not even bother with it. It's basically just going to sit on my shelf permanently.   $79.99 isn't necessarily a terrible price for this one but you can do better at that that price point today.  https://powkiddy.com/products/powkiddy-rgb10s-3-5-inch-4-3-ips-oga-screen-open-source-handheld-game-console-special-back-button-childrens-gifts Just from photos,  the RGB20S looks like a poor design with buttons and sticks too close to each other to be comfortable and the build quality looks to be pretty cheap too.. possibly worse than the RGB20 build quality.  Regardless, the RGB20S gets a hard pass from me.
