The RG353M is the ultimate handheld gaming console with high performance and reliability all contained in a stylish aluminium alloy case.
The RG353M handheld gaming console features the RK3566 quad core Cortex-A55 CPU that runs up to 1.8GHz. There is 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB of internal eMMC 5.1 storage for Android 11 OS. The Linux OS comes on its own 16GB card. There is a second card that is 64GB which is used for the game files storage.
The RG353M measures only 5.07 x 2.7 x 0.62 inches (14.5 x 7.05 x 1.59 cm) and weighs 232 grams. Despite it having an aluminum alloy case it remains very light to carry. The handheld gaming console is extremely portable, fitting into a jacket pocket or small bag
The handheld gaming console has a 3.5” IPS multi touch screen with a 640*480 screen resolution which is perfect for retro gaming. On the RG353M are the usual gaming controls including dual analogue sticks and gaming buttons for pixel perfect precision and 3D accuracy. There is also a function button which depending on the OS used, will bring up the in-emulator menu or return to the home screen.
The Linux OS runs a combination of Emulation Station and RetroArch to provide a wealth of gaming options on many classic game’s consoles from the 1970’s to more modern day on the RG353M. The Android OS requires some setting up but ultimately provides a wider range of computers and consoles to relive the classics on. You can also go the third route by installing a custom firmware on a SD card to use on the handheld gaming console which provides over 90 classic systems to choose from!
The RG353M features WiFI so you can connect online with compatible games and systems to play two player games online. There is also mini-HDMI output to connect the handheld gaming console to the TV and game on a larger screen. You can also use it on Android to install any apps you download over the internet.

Perfect for on-the-go retro gaming
Absolutely fantastic device. Perfectly pocketable for on-the-go portable gaming.
I love Linux as an OS for retro gaming, it boots up in seconds and emulators just work without any fiddling. Sometimes some niche emulators do perform better in Android though so the dual OS feature of this unit is really good. The build quality of this thing is top notch, the metal case gives a real premium feel and both the shoulder and face buttons have a lovely feel. Performance for the size and price is good but Jaguar, 3DO and PC-FX do run much better on my GPD XD+

The build quality of this thing is top notch, the metal case gives a real premium feel and both the shoulder and face buttons have a lovely feel. In terms of performance in Linux I I found all 8 and 16 bit consoles work flawlessly as expected. N64 emulation is decent, you just may need to change the core for certain games. Dreamcast performance is really good, only the occasional slow down now and again. The 3 systems I've had performance issues with are 3DO (some games fine, some run slowly), Jaguar (everything runs sloooowly) and PC-FX (games themselves run at OK speed but FMV is choppy). Saturn & Gamecube I haven't tried but I'd imagine they don't run well at all. Overall I'm really happy with this machine, for the size and price it performs really well and is built really well.
