OGA-BE Is A Linux-Based Portable Gaming Console Priced At Just $59


Hardkernel has announced its latest Linux-based handheld gaming console dubbed Odroid-Go Advanced Black Edition or OGA-BE with new hardware upgrades.

It is an upgrade over Odroid-Go Advance Portable, which featured 1GB RAM, a 3.5-inch color display, and was powered by the Rockchip RK3326 processor. Users received the console well, but the lack of WiFi and Type-C charging were some of the downsides highlighted by users.

Now, Hardkernel has launched OGA-BE with an upgraded 1.1 PCB that brings the WiFi module and USB-C port to the console. The company has also added R2 and L2 buttons to improve the gaming experience further and appease the PSX game fans.
