Bring on the RG-350 (jz4770 based) handheld
« on: July 03, 2019, 05:59:58 am »
With the veritable flood of jz4760 based handhelds, I'm keenly waiting for the RG-350.

Despite having a GCW-Zero for years already, I think the RG-350 will be a significant upgrade on what is currently available.

I know there is a discussion on Discord, but I thought it would be worth having a thread for this device here as well - despite it's currently unreleased status.

I wonder what the ETA is?

Specs are the jz4770 which the GCW zero had, 512 of ram, and under $100. I think it's also got twin sticks. The official word is "SOON", which I believe is inferred as before the end of the year?

There's coverage of the device, and exciting pictures of Tonyjih's dinners*, on the discord.

Are there baidu discussions going on about it as well, does anyone know?

Some information from Discord:

SPECS
- jz4770 CPU @1Ghz
- 512MB DDR2 RAM
- 3.5 inch IPS screen at 320x240 resolution, 4:3 aspect ratio, 60hz refresh rate with vsync, so no tearing (suck it, Bittboy!)
- Battery capacity undecided, but no smaller than 2200mah

INPUTS
- Full DualShock button layout, with L2+R2 and dual analogs with L3+R3
- Analogs will be sticks, not slide pads, apparently similar to the Nintendo Switch
- Shoulder buttons are arranged like on the New 3DS, horizontally
- Volume through +/- buttons instead of a wheel

CONNECTIVITY
- USB Type-C connection
- Mini-HDMI video output
- Headphone jack (yes, it's important!)

FORM FACTOR
- Horizontal shape, size seems to be similar to the GCW 0
- Low battery LED indicator (power LED will blink)
- LCD will have a glass cover/lens

MISC
- Price expected to be under $100

Sounds tasty.

Does that mean you will port official opendingux to the device like GCW Zero :)?

Probably redundant because Tony was working on the OS. Though I certainly don't mind competition.

I hope pcercuei does as it will mean the gcw zero emus and homebrew can be ported and updated very easily by dingoo devs and it will be nice for users to have their choice of OS

I'd pay more for a "deluxe version" with souped up components!

Better hardware for the controller, screen, battery, etc!

One of the main emu's on the device will have to be your ports of gcw zero Xmame and mame4all. Hope you can further develop and update on rg-350.

Interesting design. But, no removable battery? And the bezel mockup is ripped straight from the GCW Zero. The start and select descriptions are too close to the buttons themselves.
