Anbernic RG556 handheld gaming device now official: AMOLED display, Unisoc T820, Android 13

Anbernic launches its most advanced handheld gaming device.

Anbernic recently launched its latest product, the RG556. The Anbernic RG556 is a handheld gaming device that runs on Android 13 and features a 5.48-inch AMOLED display, a Unisoc T820 processor, and 8GB of RAM.

Compared to past Anbernic devices, the RG556 is designed to offer a smoother gaming experience. The device supports a wide range of Android games and over 30 emulators. It also comes with Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5, as well as a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C port, a microSD card slot, and high-fidelity dual speakers.

For controls, the device has a D-pad, joysticks, a six-axis gyroscope sensor, ABXY buttons, and shoulder buttons. It has a large 5500mAh battery that the company claims can last up to eight hours. It also supports 10W charging which takes the device around 3.5 hours to fully charge.

The Anbernic RG556 is priced at $184.99 (around P10,400) and is available for pre-order on Anbernic’s official website. It is pricier than what they usually offer, but as portable gaming devices go, it is a lot cheaper (and smaller) than the Steam Deck.

For Philippine gamers, expect to see the Anbernic RG556 in local gaming retail stores like Data Blitz and GameXtreme, or online on Shopee and Lazada.
