The Anbernic RG353V features a 3.5-inch, 640 x 480 pixel IPS LCD touchscreen, dual analog sticks, D-Pad, action buttons and four shoulder triggers. There’s also a vibration motor for haptic feedback during gaming.

Under the hood, it’s powered by a 1.8GHz Rockchip RK3566 quad-core ARM Cortex-A55 processor with Mali-G52 2EE graphics. The system has 2GB of LPDDR4-1056 RAM and 32GB of eMMC 5.1 storage, and Anbernic bundles the system with a 16GB microSD card. You can also pay extra for an additional microSD card or provide your own (the reader supports cards up to 512 GB).

If these specs sound familiar, that’s because the hardware is almost identical to the Anbernic RG353P launched earlier this year. But while that model had a landscape design with controllers on either side of the screen, the new RG353V is designed for portrait orientation.

Anbernic has also introduced a less capable version called the RG353VS aimed at price-conscious buyers. Pricing starts at just $90 for this model, but you’re sacrificing a lot to save a few bucks.

The Anbernic RG353VS only has 1GB of RAM, has no touchscreen, and has no eMMC storage, so it only comes with a 16GB microSD card loaded with an OS based on Linux. Android is not supported.
