We already have the POWKIDDY RK2023 in stores, the new portable console from this well-known brand that is armed with an RK3566 SoC and a 3.5-inch screen.
Inside this Powkiddy we have the RK3566 processor that we have seen in several reviews and that we can currently find in many retro consoles. This SoC allows us to move, depending on the brand, the included emulators for PSP, N64, PS1 and Dreamcast, as well as many more for 8 and 16-bit consoles. We have two micro SD slots, one for booting your Linux system with a Batocera-like distro and another slot for game storage.
The measurements are quite compact with 151.5 * 78 * 17.5 mm although if you are interested in something with a slightly large screen and with the same SoC, you have the Anbernic RG503 with a 4.5″ OLED screen for a few more euros.
