Retroid Pocket 3+, perhaps the best Chinese retro console of the moment

The new retro console Retroid Pocket 3+ has just been released, although it is currently out of stock, an evolution of the Retroid Pocket 3 that takes a great leap forward

The screen of the Retroid Pocket 3+ maintains the 4.7-inch screen and Android 11 as the operating system with full access to the APPS store. As a core, this time the processor jumps to an Unisoc T618, a chip that generally allows us to even run Nintendo Gamecube games. Also, the memory jumps to 4 GB, the storage is upgraded to 128 GB eMMc 5.1 and the battery grows to 4500 mha, big improvements in all these aspects.

As usual in the retro consoles of this brand, we find a remapping app to get the most out of its controls, among which we have analogue sticks and support for game streaming.
