Anbernic really seemed to have peaked with the RG351MP. Since then — with the RG552 and the RG503 — it’s really been a bit of a hit or a miss. We’ve managed to get our hands on the leaked renders of the upcoming Anbernic RG353P, and quite honestly, we aren’t dazzled.
This is a developing post, and we keep updating it with more info as it comes.
Anbernic RG353P leaks
Before we say more, here’s the leaked image of the RG353P. For your eyes only!
Nokia NGAGE, anyone?
Anbernic don’t need to do much to upgrade the RG351M. Heck, most retro gaming enthusiasts would even have settled for the RG351M design. Anbernic seem to have gone back to the drawing board to appeal to younger audiences perhaps, in newer markets.
As for the specifications and pricing, nothing really is known yet — however, the leaked poster does reveal support for 5G WiFi. We’ll have to wait for the official launch for more information on this one. Anbernic are working on a bunch of gaming handhelds for H2 2022, clearly. The Windows-powered Win600 is another one in the pipeline — read more about it here.

Anbernic RG353P Pricing & Where to Buy
The Anbernic RG353P is now available for $130-140, depending on where you buy it from. It is worth noting that these are pre-sale prices, and it’s expected to cost more ($20 additional, perhaps) when on sale in retail.
Generally, the best places to buy are:
The RG353P runs Android as well, and thus it’s safe to assume it’ll compete directly with the MediaTek-powered Miyoo P60.
