Handheld games have always been a popular destination for players to have a relaxing and fun time. Handheld consoles don’t have 3DS or PSP, so we use ROMS to emulate old retro games. However, which is the best retro console today? Here are the top 10 miniature portable console emulators.
RG351MP – This handheld computer appeared on board in September 2021 with an excellent RKK3326 chip. It has a 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 3500mah battery, and a 4:3 IPS display with 640×480 resolution.
The RG351MP is an updated version of the RG351M, but it has new colors and a crisp 4:3 screen that helps you play retro games in the best way possible.
The device is made of aluminum and has two analog sticks, USB-C charging, Wi-Fi, and a retro game emulator up to PS1.
The Analogue Pocket could be just the console to beat the OLED Switch. Analogue has long been known for its high-quality approach to making set-top boxes like the Super Nt. Still, now the company has introduced a handheld device with FPGA technology rather than emulation.
FPGA is a technology that is nearly identical to the original hardware. The Analogue Pocket has a 3.5″ LCD with a PPI of 615, Gorilla Glass, and wear-resistant buttons.
Nostalgia is a great feeling! You can insert old cartridges into the Analogue Pocket and enjoy old games in a new way.
