A week after revealing the performance levels of PS2 emulation and Android games, Anbernic has now confirmed full launch details for the RG556. As expected, Anbernic sells the RG556 in multiple color options. However, it chose not to launch the device in the glossy white color that was leaked late last month.

However, the Pocket 4 may be a bit more powerful than Anbernick’s portable gaming consoles, despite its smaller size.

Furthermore, the RG556 runs Android 13 natively but has only one USB Type-C port for charging and connecting to external displays using the DisplayPort Alt Mode protocol. The Anbernic RG556 starts at $174.99 and goes up to $204.99 in $15 increments when you add a MicroSD card.
