A video has been shown of what is expected to be Anbernic’s next retro handheld. The Anbernic RG Nano is as the name suggests a tiny sized retro handheld that is small enough to put on a keychain.
The video is not allowed to be embedded but you can watch it here. It is not the best quality video, so here are a few screenshots showing the front, back, top and a rough size compared to the persons thumb.
From the video we can see the Anbernic RG Nano has a D-Pad, four game buttons, SELECT & START on the front, with L1 and R1 buttons on the top. The top also has a USB Type-C charge port which with a convertor is also used for 3.5mm headphone. According to the translated Chinese text the CPU is an Allwinner K3S which I could not find any mention of online. It will have a 1050mAh battery. I would take a guess at a 1″ to 2″ display going by the thumb size, it depends on the size of the thumb really 🙂 It could even be a 1.54″ display which is used on the Funkey S and Powkiddy Q36. It will run on the Funkey Linux OS and is possibly dual boot. Their focus is higher sound quality.
We have only seen a GBA emulator running on it so far, but according to the translated text this is roughly what the RG Nano supports up to.
Going by the size I think we could see this at a fairly low price aimed as more of a toy/gift rather than a serious retro handheld. For this price range I would expect $25 to $35, $40 at a push.
When is the Anbernic RG Nano released?
The product does look finished, so like their recent RG353PS we could see this going on sale within the next month or two.
