Powkiddy V90: A compact retro handheld games console with up to four hours battery life
Powkiddy has released another handheld and retro games console, the V90. As is usual for Powkiddy products, the V90 shares its design with a classic console. Namely, the V90 is the spitting image of the Game Boy Advance SP; a handheld games console that Nintendo released in 2003.
The Powkiddy V90 has a 3.0-inch IPS panel that runs natively at 320 x 240 pixels. Powkiddy describes the device as having an ARM9 CPU. AndroidpcTV.com posits that this may be an Allwinner F1C100S, while Retro Dodo goes one further and claims that the Powkiddy V90 may have the same internals as the Bittboy Pocket Go.
The Powkiddy V90 also has a 1,040 mAh battery that can be recharged via a USB Type-C port. The device has the button layout from the Game Boy Advance SP plus Y and X buttons and two more shoulder buttons. According to Powkiddy, the V90 can emulate at least the following consoles:
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Color
- Neo Geo Pocket
- PlayStation 1
- Sega Game Gear
- Sega Master System
- Sega Mega Drive
- Super Famicom
The Powkiddy V90 runs Open Linux and is available in red or yellow. The device is available to order on AliExpress for US$39.99.
