Anbernic RG353P Release Date: June 18, 2022

  Anbernic RG353P (Release [Or Pre-Order]: June 18) Price: $129.99 + ($139.99 after June 18) Pre-Sale Link (Live on June 18): If all goes as planned, the RG353P which closely resembles the PocketGo S30 shell should be available for purchase on June 18.  The likely first dropping spot is and the Official Anbernic Store on AliExpress.  I'll likely sit this device out a little while as I'm hoping Anbernic will eventually drop the 353V (Vertical). There's no official word about that news so that is just a Speculative guess from me that they are likely to drop a new vertical soon.  From a power standpoint, the 353P should be a little better than the RG503 due to community developers having more time with it prior to release and having 2GB RAM instead of the 1GB on the 503. If optimized, the 353P should be able to handle up to PSP decently but it will not outperform the $99 Retroid Pocket 2 Plus. The 353P unlike the 503

Anbernic RG353P Specs Now Officially Confirmed

  The specs on the RG353P are now officially confirmed by Anbernic and are not far off from what rumors indicated. I'm still not a big fan of the look and it doesn't look very comfortable to me, but there are some pluses to the system if the price ends up being good.  The biggest pluses I think are that it will be a dual boot system (Linux and Android), developers already have their hands on the system so custom firmware options should happen faster than usual, and I like that it has a 4:3 screen (4:3 is the best size for most classic gaming options) when so many devices lately are wide-screen. The SoC on the RG353 should be able to handle PSP, N64, Dreamcast, etc. easily which is a bump up from the 351 series. This SoC is the same as the RG503 but hopefully with a less messy OS setup. I was not not a fan of the PocketGo S30 which this one closely resembles but we'll see what happens. I expect this one to be available very soon.  The 4:3 screen being a touch-screen is also

Anbernic RG353 Photo Leak? Maybe...

*Update: *Update: A Second Image Has Surfaced and has been confirmed by multiple sources. Looks like it is real after all and officially called the RG353P... it is expected to have the same SoC as the RG503 and run Android/Linux.  The last time I heard anything about a possible Anbernic RG353, it looked like a vertical handheld. A very blurry and pixelated photo has now appeared that's possibly the planned RG353. Looks like a knockoff of the PocketGo S30 and if that's the case,  it gets a hard pass from me. The S30 was not very ergonomic at all.  The screen in this blurry photo looks like a 4:3 so it could be a different shell but there's no legitimate information behind any of this... just a wild rumor at this point.  If it is real,  I'm assuming the leaked photo is blurry because the handheld doesn't exist yet...
