Retroid Pocket 3 Hardware Trailer (YouTube)

 Not much to see here (YouTube video above) other than a closer look at the Retroid Pocket 3.  https://youtu.be/f_DJXRfummM Given that the RP3 uses the same SoC as the Retroid Pocket 2 Plus, I'm not expecting improved emulation performance (beyond marginal), but I am still expecting a device that's well worth the money.
