Powkiddy has begun selling the RGB20S, a gaming handheld that resembles a Game Boy. Equipped with a 3.5-inch IPS display and multiple buttons, the Powkiddy RGB20S retails for US$79.99.

Powkiddy has released the RGB20S, a retro gaming handheld powered by the Rockchip RK3326 and 1 GB of RAM. For reference, the RK3326 features four ARM Cortex-A53 cores paired with a Mali-G31 GPU, underlining its credentials as a budget chipset. While the RGB20S does not feature built-in storage, it comes with two microSD card readers.

Hence, it should be possible to retain your game files on one microSD card while updating the RGB20S using another. According to Powkiddy, the RGB20S should be powerful enough to emulate Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS and PlayStation games, among others. Accordingly, Powkiddy has included two joysticks, a d-pad, four action buttons and four shoulder buttons.

Moreover, the 120 x 83 x 21 mm device has a 3.5-inch IPS display that outputs at 640 x 480 pixels. As Powkiddy's marketing pictures show, the RGB20S includes a USB Type-C port too, which can recharge the device's 3,500 mAh battery. Incidentally, the Type-C port serves as an OTG port when required.

Currently, the Powkiddy RGB20S retails for US$79.99. All models come with a built-in Wi-Fi module, while Powkiddy offers the device in orange or white ABS finishes.
