Anbernic is rightly considered to be one of the leading companies in the realm of emulation handhelds, but in recent years it has seen its position come under threat due to a rise in competition from the likes of Miyoo, Retroid and other hardware makers.

Nonetheless, a new Anbernic system is always going to generate interest online, and it would appear that the firm's next handheld has just leaked (via Retro Handhelds, as spotted by RetroDodo).

The RG405M looks like it could follow on from the classic R351 and RG353 devices, which many still consider to be the best the company has ever released.

The RG405M retains the same landscape form factor, but there are some significant changes. It is rumoured to be powered by the Unisoc Tiger T618 chip – the same chip that is found inside the Retroid Pocket 3+. That means the device will almost certainly be running Google's Android OS.

The shell is made from metal, and Anbernic has switched the locations of the D-pad and left-hand analogue stick – something many have been requesting for some time. Let us know what you think of this new device by posting a comment below.
