Anbernic RG-552 To Be Over $300? (Rumor)

I find the rumors that Anbernic plans to price the RG-552 at over $300 to be unlikely in ways but you never know.   Their prices have been steadily creeping up... https://droix.co.uk/blogs/anbernic-rg552-faq-everything-we-know-so-far/?amp=1#rb-rg552-price The Rumored price at DroiX would put the RG-552 between $309 and $336. If this is even close to true,  it gets a very hard pass from me and makes upcoming handhelds like the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus ($99) and Odin look a whole lot nicer... On paper I feel like the RG-552 looks like a $150-$200 device. $300+ is insane. The global supply chain issues CERTAINLY explain price increases a bit but there's no justification for paying over $300 for this. Hopefully this rumor is untrue. Any excitement I had for this handheld will quickly vanish if true. The expected launch of the RG-552 is at the end of this month so we will find out soon.
