As mentioned in a new blog post, the device will be delivered on December 13th. Due to unprecedented shipping restrictions, those who have pre-ordered the handheld can expect their device to arrive between December 14th and December 30th. As the holiday season approaches, Analogue notes that it is holding packages for those people who may not be at home, with these units scheduled for delivery on January 3, 2022.

Analogue Pocket was originally announced in 2019. With this slim device, users can play handheld games released during the fourth, fifth, and sixth generations, such as: B. GameBoy Color cartridges. The Pocket has a 3.5-inch, 665 ppi Gorilla Glass LCD display with an estimated battery life of six hours.
In addition to the ability to play through a variety of retro handheld games, Analogue, Inc. announced last month that Pocket will have its own operating system that will allow you to save games to and from cartridges, among other things.
Analogue Pocket, like many other devices, was negatively affected by the global chip shortage. But despite the last two delays for Pocket due to its COVID-related impact, Analogue Pocket will set its release date in 2021, unlike Valve’s Steam Deck and Panic’s Playdate, which have been postponed to early 2022 due to delivery bottlenecks.
