Powkiddy specializes in handheld gaming consoles, and if their latest Powkiddy X2 portable game console looks familiar, it’s because it looks just like a Nintendo Switch.
But the comparison stops there. The NVIDIA processor is replaced by a quad-core Cortex-A7 processor, the display has a lower resolution, the controllers aren’t detachable, and unsurprisingly you can’t play any Nintendo Switch games.
Powkiddy X2 specification:
- SoC – Quad-core Cortex-A7 processor @ 1.3 GHz (possibly Rockchip RK3128)
- System Memory – TBD
- Storage – TBD flash storage, MicroSD card slot
- Display – 7″ IPS display with 1024×600 resolution
- Video Output – Mini HDMI output
- Audio – 3.5mm audio jack; speaker(s); MP3/MP4 audio playback
- USB – 2x Micro USB port to connect external gamepads
- User input – 2x rockers, 2x D-PADs, select and start keys, function key, L&R; power & reset keys, volume control
- Battery – 3,000 mAh
The console is said to come with 11 game console emulators to play retro games for the Sony PlayStation (1), Sega MegaDrive, NeoGeo, NES, SNES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, as well as Arcade consoles such FBA and ones based on CP System (CPS) board. The device supports 11 languages while the game catalog is available in both Chinese and English.
If you are interested, Powkiddy X2 is sold for under $80 on Aliexpress.

It’ll probably be poorly received by developers, which is too bad, because it might have been a possibility for someone looking for an Odroid Go Advance that they don’t have to assemble themselves.
A copy of OGA has already been made
A mock-up perhaps, I don’t think you would get this if you purchased.
Not sure. I mean it’s not that complicated to create a device like this. But I also wouldn’t purchase something on a site like this. Banggood, Aliexpress etc. are fine though.
Interesting, but it doesn’t has Bluetooth. I think it would be way more interesting with Bluetooth.
Nice formfactor but:
