Chinese device maker JXD launched a handheld game console called the Singularity S192 in late 2015. It had a 7 inch full HD touchscreen display, physical gaming buttons, and the same NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor used in the NVIDIA Shield K1 tablet.

But NVIDIA stopped selling those chips a while back, so JXD has revamped the tablet.

The new JXD S192k looks nearly identical to its predecessor. But it has twice as much memory and storage and features a Rockchip RK3288 processor instead of an NVIDIA chip.

The new model features 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 10,000 mAh battery, and a 1920 x 1200 pixel display.

It has a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of removable storage. There’s a 5MP front-facing camera, a 3-axis motion sensor, and all the buttons you need to emulate popular classic game consoles. There’s also HDMI output for connecting the JXD S192k to a TV.

The switch from a Tegra K1 processor to an RK3288 chip isn’t really much of an upgrade. The two processors get similar benchmark score, although the NVIDIA chip comes out slightly ahead in most tests. The main reason for the switch? The RK3288 chip is still available.

It would have been nice to have seen JXD opt for a newer option like Rockchip’s RK3399 though.

The new model seems to have a list price of around $400, but Gearbest is taking pre-orders for $360.

  1. The processor is on-par with the old QSD 805 from the Note 4.
    Not terrible, definitely a side-step/step down from the Tegra K1/QSD 808 and QSD 810/Tegra X1.
    Still much better than all those Quad/Hexa/Octa-Core A53-only chips.
    However…. everyone should step up to the refreshed 64-bit platform now.

    I would’ve liked to see at least a QSD 650 in there.
    Could’ve also used the QSD 652, QSD 653, Exynos 7420, QSD 660, Kirin 960, QSD 820, QSD 821, Exynos 8890, QSD 835.

    Would be a good rig for emulation.
    Especially since Android can emulate from the weak Atari all the way upto the Nintendo Wii power level. Which is pretty impressive of the platform, slowly shaping up to become the new “Windows”. (although the Nintendo DS and PS2 emulators aren’t optimised yet/choppy sound/run <15fps).

  2. Might as well get a gpd win instead at that price. You can play full games from steam on it and not the same games you can play on a phone.

  3. They really should have gone with the rk3399. I have it in my Chromebook Plus, and it games surprisingly well.

  4. This is extremely overpriced for what you are getting. The K1 version was plagued with issues, and JXD has had terrible customer support.

  5. Looks hideous and exactly how not to design a handheld games machine.

    Plus the price $400 to play Android games, it’s not like you cant get controllers for Android devices to begin with.

    You could get a GPD-Win or Switch for that kind of money and play games worth playing with a controller.

    1. My phone, which has 64 gigs of storage, 4 GBs of RAM, and every game up to the Nintendo 64 I’ve ever owned on it, plus a Bluetooth controller is sufficient. I wouldn’t mind something like this for streaming things though.
