The next generation Anbernic Handheld device is here.
The Anbernic RG552 steps into the 5"+ 10-point touchscreen territory. Supporting Android and Linux with the standard premium controls. You'll be able to play more retro games up to Playstation, PSP on a much bigger screen along with some Wii and modern Android titles.
With close to a 5.4" IPS touch screen and Nintendo switch quality joysticks, this handheld gaming console is big enough to bring your games to life while still portable being a tad smaller than the Nintendo Switch Lite.
The screen resolution steps up from 640*480 seen on the 351V and 351MP to 1920x1152. HDMI is finally back, so you can connect your wired or wireless gamepad along with a HDMI cable and play on the big screen.
Plug in the charging cable and when you're done unplug and take it with you wherever you go for 5+ hours of gameplay. Comes with an Australian charge pack so no messy, bulky adapter is needed.
What do you plug your charge cable into? The 552 comes with its own fast charger. No more trying to find a matching charger and you'll be fully charged and ready to rumble in less than 2hrs.
Our charger comes with an AU plug built-in, so no need for a big chunky adapter.
We also have 2 options when it comes to protective travel cases for your RG552
Given the RG552 runs Android and Linux your options are limitless. Enjoy playing Retro classics to newer Android titles how you want with quality dual Rocker vibrating joysticks, DPad, standard and shoulder buttons.
Our RG552 consoles have the updated 16GB microSD card that boots into EmulationStation. The 64GB secondary card is loaded and ready to play.
We've setup hotkeys for you already so to exit a game simply press the SELECT and START buttons together.
Should you choose to boot into Android, Simply remove the 16GB card.
The RG552 comes with WiFi and dual micro SD cards providing easier accessibility, customisation and the ability to add games your way.
Performance-wise the handheld runs an RK3399 Hexa-core 64-bit processor at 1.8GHz with 4GB LPDDR4. This is already a step ahead of most retro consoles as the norm is 1-2GB RAM. The active turbo cooling seen over the past months on numerous posts will keep it cool and performing during long play sessions.
Videos have leaked of the RG552 playing PSP titles such as God of war and Tekken 6. You can expect to play Nintendo DS, Megadrive and so on including 64-bit consoles such as Dreamcast, Playstation, N64, Saturn etc.
The exciting bit is we start to step into WII and Gamecube territory. So looking forward to seeing which of these titles play well.
From the dual micro SD cards to sound toggle button and on/off you can expect to see a very similar layout to the 351MP however in a larger footprint with more power and enticing touch screen display wrapped in a Black or Bronze Gray case.
Electro Arcade is an authorised Anbernic seller and deals directly with Anbernic enabling us to provide improved QC, support and parts.
The IPS screen provides a crisp and vibrant image from any angle. The high-quality dual speaker audio, premium joysticks and up to 6hrs battery life mean a greater lasting experience every time.
Plugin your headphones, pick a comfy corner and play away...
The 552 is a dual boot console using Android and Linux so, like most emulators you can expect to see RetroArch meaning you can tweak and adjust each game and consoles settings.
As always we recommend that you make a soft backup image file of your SD card and store it away.
The stock micro SD card can be replaced with 128GB, 256GB or 400GB SD cards giving you room to grow your collection.Happy retro gaming.

This is a great device with a beautiful screen. D-pad games are easy to play, using the joysticks can be tricky with adult sized hands
Great build quality and the beautiful touchscreen display is the best on any handheld i have owned. After an update to the Android firmware this gives access to the Google Play-store. This makes it easy to add and update apps . Streaming games via moonlight or steam works very well. Liked being able to purchase locally too. A bit pricey but im very happy 😃
Thanks, your customer service is fantastic.
Thanks you for the device I’m very happy with it
Awesome retro handheld, screen is amazing as well as performance. You won't be disappointed
