Believed to be called the Ultra Game Boy, the modern rework spotlights some notable hardware upgrades, such as a sturdy aluminum construction and an extra dial, which controls the device’s new backlit LCD display. The portable console will also feature an interior six-hour battery, USB-C port and stereo speakers, amongst others.
