We already have the new POWKIDDY X2 retro console available in stores, in which the colors of its design are clearly visible, clearly inspired by the Nintendo Switch. This console has nothing to do with a Nintendo Switch and this new Powkiddy is intended for retro emulation and includes 11 emulators from GB to PS1 as standard, with 2,500 preloaded games.
A retro console designed for lovers of large format since its IPS screen has a size of 7 inches, which makes it easy to use for example video viewing. For the control we observe that we have 2 analog sticks, a pair of D-Pads that are not aligned and two triggers (bad choice for some emulators). We also have various buttons for direct access to functions such as volume, ect … and an interesting HDMI video output that allows us to connect the POWKIDDY X2 to any TV.
The POWKIDDY X2 includes a Quad Core SoC, quite possibly an RK3128, with ARM Cortex-A7 processors capable of 1.3Ghz and an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU. About RAM and storage memory at the moment we have no data.
Screen and other specifications
Its screen is a 7-inch IPS with a resolution of 1024 × 600 pixels. At the connector level we have a microSD card reader, 3.5mm audio jack, miniHDMI video output and a pair of microUSB ports where we can connect a pair of external gamepads. The battery is 3000mAh and the brand does not include data on its duration.
