Retroid, a maker of Android-based game consoles, has introduced a new device in its Pocket series. Dubbed the Pocket 3, it is the successor to the Pocket 2 and features a quad-core processor. So, let’s take a look at the specifications, features, availability, and expected price of the Retroid Pocket 3 in Nepal.

Retroid Pocket 3 Overview:

Performance

Let us begin by discussing the performance. One Arm Cortex-A75 CPU and three ARM Cortex-A55 processors power the Retroid Pocket 3. The graphics, on the other hand, are handled by a PowerVR GE8300 GPU operating at 800MHz. Plus, it utilizes an aluminum heatsink for passive cooling.

On paper, this processor choice may not appear to be very powerful, but keep in mind that it is a mobile gaming console. In fact, it works on Android 11, so you can easily play PS2 and GameCube games. This is complemented with a new game launcher and emulation UI designed for consoles.

Furthermore, the device’s base model has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The RAM may be upgraded to 3GB for $10, but the storage option stays constant.

Display, Design

The Retroid Pocket 3’s display spans 4.7 inches, and the game can be streamed straight onto the TV through the HDMI connector. The screen’s bezels are also rather thin.

Furthermore, aesthetically the device looks similar to the Nintendo Switch Lite, with comparable button placements. As you can see, Retroid has opted for Nintendo’s YXAB layout over the more typical XYBA pattern. Similarly, the Pocket 3 comes in six various colors that combine a combo of retro game console and modern technology.

Rest of the specs

The gaming console is fueled by a 4000mAh battery and supports USB Type-C charging. Besides this, you get a 3.5mm headphone jack and two speaker vents that outputs 2W audio.
