Anbernic's RG353P can run Linux, Android and emulate classic consoles

Tech Highlights:

  • The system comes with a design that’s reminiscent of the Super Nintendo controller, complete with grey and purple hues (although a dark transparent variant is also available), and features a 3.5-inch IPS touchscreen panel with a 640 x 480p resolution, and a 1.8 GHz Rockchip RK3566 quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 processor with Mali-G52 MP2 graphics. The handheld also comes with a full array of controls, such as Start and Select Buttons, a D-pad, A, B, X, Y face buttons, shoulder and trigger buttons, analog sticks, as well as ports for data and charging.

  • Emulation of video games has always been a never-ending interest for many (and an utter obsession for others), and we’ve seen some unique and creative ways to accomplish near-perfect console emulation through the use of software, hardware, and frequently a combination of both over the years. As a result, retro system maker “Anbernic” (a brand well-known in emulation communities and forums) has announced the Anbernic RG353P, a new portable handheld system that, according to the manufacturer, can emulate several older game consoles, including the PlayStation and Nintendo 64, and can also dual-boot into Android or Linux.

The bottom of the device also comes with bottom-firing stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Inside, the RG353P comes with 32GB of internal storage, and runs on Android 11. There’s also a micro-SD card inside which will allow users to dual-boot into Linux, although there is a secondary slot for expandable storage. Of course, the handheld will have support for WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.

All of this is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery, which according to Anbernic will be able to provide up to six hours’ worth of battery life. While it’s not out for sale yet, it is available for pre-order, so interested users and emulation enthusiasts will be able to (eventually) get their hands on the RG353P for around $130. more_vertSamsung Pay stops working on non-Samsung devi. more_vertWhatsApp users can now freely transfer chat h
