Unless something unexpected happens, Anbernic will launch RG351V at the end of February, followed closely after RG351M.
You are a fan of the portrait console but you're tired of the Game Boy gray, then you could have a wood grain RG351V in your pocket this time. Seriously, a retro console painted with wood grain, this is a first for a retro console like that.
As the founder of Anbernic, Mr. Zhou said, the first layer of the case is painted with primer for improving adhesion quality of the surface, the second layer uses water transfer printing technology, the upper layer is painted with varnish protection. We can expect a fairly nice looking and good quality from it.
RG351V game console isn't anything new. One thing new here is the upgrade of the dual TF cards. The OS file and ROMs are put in the different card now, it means there is no need to backup ROMs before updating the emulation or adds ROMs after the update finished for the users, it is indeed a friendly upgrade.
The two pairs of triggers are inlaid on the back, I cannot see it very clearly from the video but I wish they could be a little wider for comfortable pressing.
The 3.5'' 680x480 IPS screen is enough to be continuously immersed for me. From the photo shared by Mr. Zhou, Dragon Ball shows pretty stunningly. We can enjoy using the panel for nicely saturated colors and better visual effects. If you're a fan of GBA dot-by-dot, RG351V won't let you down.
Mr. Zhou also shared the specifications with the folks in the forum. They offer a 4000 milliamp-hour battery in this portrait console, it does include built-in WiFi, dual OTG port. With everything are well-placed, the console isn't inferior to a landscape game console.
