The RG280V is Anbernic's latest handheld games console, and its smallest to boot. The RG280V runs on OpenDingux and should be powerful enough to emulate N64 and PS1 games smoothly.

Anbernic has unveiled its smallest handheld console to date, the RG280V. Based on an Ingenic JZ4700 MIPS-based processor, the RG280V runs OpenDingux and has a host of buttons for playing emulators. Specifically, Anbernic has included a d-pad, four main keys, along with buttons for select and start. Additionally, there are four shoulder buttons.

Based on the promotional video below, the RG280V should be powerful enough to emulate N64 and PS1 games. Games like Gran Turismo appear to run well, although we would await third-party reviews before making any judgements. The RG280V also has a 3.5 mm jack and a USB Type-C port for charging.

Anbernic is yet to announce the price of the RG280V, nor when it will become available. However, the company's devices typically cost in the region of US$100, so we doubt that the RG280V will cost any more than this. You can keep abreast of updates about the RG280V on Anbernic's Facebook page.
