Retroid announced two new handhelds, the Retroid Pocket 4 and Pocket 4 Pro.
Don't you love it when new consoles are announced via Twitter? We do, which is why we have to keep using the cursed platform to stay anywhere near up-to-date with things. On that subject, we've got good news for fans of the Retroid devices because we're getting two new ones, sort of.
The Retroid Pocket 4 and Retroid Pocket 4 Pro will be coming at some point, although we're not sure when. The company has announced all of the specs in a tweet, and you can go and view the individual things yourself, but they do look pretty good.
The standard version has 4GB of RAM, a G6.8 MC4 GPU, and an MTK D900 processor. The Pro will have 8GB of RAM, a G7.7 MC9 GPU, and an MTK D1100 processor.
Price-wise, the standard version will cost $149, while the Pro will set you back $199. It's hard not to view the Pro as the better choice here, given that you're doubling your RAM, among a few other little boosts.
The Pro will also be the only version with a DisplayPort, which could be good news for those who like more flexibility in their handheld devices. We're not sure how important that is when considering a purchase like this, but hey, more stuff is usually good.
We'll be interested to see how the devices actually perform. Doubling the RAM sounds like a lot and would certainly be something we'd consider dropping the extra $50 for just on its own, but you can never really tell how much of an impact that will have until you're really wading into the testing side of things.
We'll keep you updated with any release date or window as it gets announced, and in the meantime, we'll all be waiting with bated breath.
