Funnyplaying Retro Pixel Pocket: New Game Boy Pocket lookalike debuts with Allwinner A64 chipset
Funnyplaying has finally started selling the Retro Pixel Pocket, nearly a year after the company first teased the gaming handheld. Drawing inspiration from the Game Boy Pocket, the Retro Pixel Pocket is likely to compete with the Anbernic RG35XX that launched in January. However, while Anbernic sells its 3.5-inch gaming handheld for US$55.99, the Retro Pixel Pocket initially cost US$79.99 but has risen to US$99.99.
According to Funnyplaying, it has equipped the Retro Pixel Pocket with the Allwinner A64, a low-powered chipset which features four ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores clocked at 1.1 GHz and a Mali-400 MP2 GPU that supports OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 standards. Additionally, the Retro Pixel Pocket sports 1 GB of DDR3 RAM, has 8 GB of eMMC flash storage and supports MicroSD card expansion for storing games. Also, Funnyplaying has included Wi-Fi connectivity to sync game art.
Moreover, the gaming handheld contains a 3-inch laminated display that outputs at 720 x 720 pixels. Elsewhere, Funnyplaying has integrated two shoulder buttons, ABXY buttons, start/select buttons and a small d-pad. The gaming handheld also features a 2 W speaker.
