GKD Pixel: New compact gaming handheld teased as Anbernic RG Nano beater with 2-inch display
GKD has begun teasing the Pixel, an apparent competitor to the Anbernic RG Nano. To recap, the latter launched in June for US$59.99 with a 1.5-inch display and a housing that weighs just 75 g. In comparison, the GKD Pixel looks roughly a third larger than the RG Nano; GKD has not shown its compact gaming handheld from all sides yet, though. For now, most pictures show the rear of the GKD Pixel, with the RG Nano, Miyoo Mini, and Miyoo Mini Plus included for size comparison purposes.
Reportedly, GKD has equipped the Pixel with a 2-inch display, which also appears to have a 4:3 aspect ratio. Additionally, the GKD Pixel has much slimmer display bezels than the Anbernic RG Nano, effectively providing greater screen real estate without increasing the device's footprint too much. Moreover, the GKD Pixel is said to have a 3.5 mm jack and a USB Type-C port, as well as a few indicator lights.
According to Retro Dodo, GKD will offer the Pixel in Black, Blue, Green, Pink and Red colourway, plus an unknown special edition option. Currently, the GKD Pixel is expected to arrive next month, albeit in limited quantities. Initially, the gaming handheld should be available through RetroCN. However, we would not be surprised if GKD eventually brought the Pixel to a crowdfunding platform like Kickstarter, as was the case with the Mini Plus Classic.
