Rivals like the RK2020 are coming in cheaper, and with far more power, even though the build quality is nothing shy of terrible.
So, ANBERNIC only had one choice. To add the newer RK3326 chip instead of the previous JZ4770 in order for it to power N64, Dreamcast and even PSP games.
This could turn this handheld into one of the best to come out of 2020, because we all know the build quality of the RG350P is beyond phenomenal, especially their metal editions.
- 3.5″ IPS Display (320 x 480)
- Quad Core 1.5GHZ CPU (RK3326)
- Mali-G31 MP2 GPU
- 1GB RAM
- Open Source Linux System
- 3500MAH Battery
How Does The RG351P Look?
As you can tell it looks a lot like its older brother, but it seems like ANBERNIC have made it slightly more compact. Some would say it even looks like the RG280M.
It has dual analogue sticks, with the left stick being under the DPAD, this is what many users wanted changed in the original RG350, so it’s good to see them making the same adjustments.
The ANBERNIC logo has been made smaller, and is in a light grey colour too.
The DPAD looks slightly different to others we’ve seen. It has directional arrows on it, rather than normal circles for grip. The start and select buttons are located at the top as usual, just next to the ABXY buttons.
The RG351P features a fairly low resolution screen, which is disappointing.
The same goes for the chip, we would even say this is becoming quickly outdated too, as the Retroid Pocket 2 demolishes this cheap, and is prices at $80.
On the top you’ll find four shoulder buttons which curve slightly around the sides of the handheld. Alongside that is two USB-C ports and a headphone jack. Why companies put the headphone jack at the top we do not know, it just makes it awkward!
On the bottom, two speakers and a TF card slot. On the sides your on/off button and volume buttons. The RG351P is smaller than the RG350P, as the chin has been reduced, making it even more portable.
It comes in white, black and purple. The purple is our current favourite, it reminds us of the original Gameboy Advance and the Gamecube colour scheme.
How Does It Perform?
As of now, we do not know, because our RG351P is on the way. But it has the exact same chip as the RK2020 and the ODROID Go Advance, which makes us believe that this can handle N64 and most PSP games.
This excites us because ANBERNIC know how to make handhelds, their build quality is superb and it feels like a proper handheld, not as if it was made for just a few bucks.
The 1GB of RAM will help out big time, but we still can’t get over the screen resolution, it seems like they might have to upgrade this further down the line. Perhaps in their RG351M?
We have to wait and see until our arrives, but you can be sure you’ll see it on our YouTube channel first, so be sure to head over there to subscribe.
