Anbernic RG556

Extreme Retro Handheld Game Console

Anbernic’s latest device is the RG556, a 5.48-inch Android-based emulation handheld with an AMOLED display powered by the Unisoc T820 processor. Is it the Anbernic upgrade we’ve been waiting for?

Among Anbernic's lineup, the RG556 commands attention for its departure from the brand's conventional design approach. Historically, Anbernic has prioritized compact, easily portable devices, characterized by inline shoulder buttons and a symmetrical joystick layout. However, with the RG556, there's a noticeable shift. This handheld device boasts a wider, thicker profile, complete with integrated hand grips. Notably, it introduces stacked shoulder buttons with analogue triggers and adopts an asymmetric joystick layout, signalling a departure from the brand's traditional design philosophy.

The design approach of the RG556 may not appeal to those seeking ultra-portable handhelds; however, the resulting device offers exceptional ergonomics and comfort. Weighing just 331g, it remains lightweight, facilitating effortless mobility and extended usage. Its ergonomic design fits snugly in the hands, with integrated hand grips promoting a natural grip, while all buttons remain easily accessible. Although the power and volume buttons require a slight reach, this does not significantly impact the overall user experience. In fact, the RG556 could arguably be deemed Anbernic’s most ergonomically designed landscape-oriented device to date, complemented by robust hardware including a proper D-pad for retro gaming precision, satisfying tactile feedback from each face button, and Hall effect-based analogue triggers offering optimal resistance and eliminating concerns about "stick drift".
