POWKIDDY Q90 a little open source console with IPS screen

It seems that the economic slowdown in China is causing the price drop in all types of electronic gadget since in this last week we have not stopped seeing interesting offers on Aliexpress. Today we locate the POWKIDDY Q90 portable retro console, with an external design that reminds us of the Nintendo Swift lines, at a really low price.

This small handheld console stands out for its IPS screen, its open source OS and for having 15 emulators included among which the PS1 or SNES. From what we have read it seems a good alternative as a portable for emulation of a certain quality.



The screen of the POWKIDDY Q90 retro console is a 3.0 inch IPS with a resolution of 320×240 pixels. Inside we have an Allwinner F1C100S SoC with an ARM926-EJS CPU that runs between 533-798 MHz with a 2D GPU and 32MB of DDR RAM. We have 16GB of built-in internal memory that we can expand thanks to the MicroSD card reader in a compartment under the battery. It also includes a pair of 1W speakers, 3.5mm audio jack, vibrator and the battery is removable type BP-4L, with a capacity of 1500mAh and that we can recharge for the included USB Type-C connector.

The emulators included by default are GB / GBC / GBA / MD / FC / GG / SFC (SNES) / NGP / MS / WS / PS / FBA / PCE / CPS / NEOGEO and the operating system is open source based on Linux .
