It’s fair to say PowKiddy’s been fairly active the last year or so. The company, that really sprung to popularity amidst the pandemic, seems to have started shipping its newest retro gaming handheld console — the PowKiddy RGB20S.

The standout features of the PowKiddy RGB20S include dual microSD slots, a USB Type-C port, WiFi support, and the usual emulator suite.

PowKiddy claims the RGB20S will be able to emulate the following systems: PS1, CPS3, GameBoy, GameBoy Advance, MAME, NeoGeo, Nintendo DS, and among others.

With a respectable 3500mAh battery, the RGB20S uses a Type-C port as mentioned. This will mean that there will be less of a mess on your desk, since older handhelds used microUSB ports.

Back to the specs of the handheld console, it has a 3.5-inch IPS display that packs 640 x 480 pixels. It’s powered by the Rockchip RK3326 SoC, which we’ve seen on a bunch of other retro gaming handhelds.

Compatibility, hence, should not be too much of an issue.
