Retro mini RS-90 gba micro handheld
« on: November 19, 2017, 01:37:02 pm »
Indstr mentioned this handheld in a previous topic: The retro mini https://www.amazon.com/Handheld-Console-Retro-Bran-new-Classical-Children/dp/B0777J6KVV/ref=sr_1_165?ie=UTF8&qid=1510859830&sr=8-165&keywords=handheld+game+tf+card .
After some searching I found out that the same handheld is also being sold on aliexpress under the name Revo mini : https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/REVO-MINI-Handheld-Game-Console-2-0-Video-Game-MP3-MP4-Speler-met-Backlit-40-Ingebouwde/32842291381.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.e23i5g .
The photo's match the prototype renders on gbatemp: https://gbatemp.net/threads/theres-a-new-handheld-coming-the-revo-k101-mini.427939/ .
I'm not sure if I should order one through Aliexpress. The amazon reviews are all made by people who just recently opened an account. Thoughts?
EDIT: Actually it's not made by the Revo k101 people.

It's not hardware emulation but software. Still might get one next month, because of the nintendo style dpad  8)

Does that mean that it has the same processor? then it can be hacked  :)

The look of this is really nice. Love to hear some performance impressions if anyone gets one.

Shoulder buttons are on the back, where the cartridge slot would have been.

So this uses an Ingenic jz4725B. Is that an okay processor for gba and gameboy?

Can the gameboy color emulator run in full screen or with less of a border?
