The Game Boy Pocket is a redesigned version of the original Game Boy and was released in 1996. Notably, this variation is smaller and lighter.
Another notable improvement over the original Game Boy is a black-and-white display screen, rather than the green-tinted display of the original Game Boy, It’s also much sharper than the original Game Boy screen and has a faster pixel response time, so blurring and ghosting are less of an issue. The GBP’s screen has a 65 mm diagonal, 48.5 mm width, and 43.5 mm height. Although like its predecessor, the Game Boy Pocket has no backlight to allow play in a darkened area, it did notably improve visibility and pixel response-time. The first version did not have a power LED. This was soon added due to public demand, along with new Game Boy Pocket units of different colours
the Game Boy Pocket is more power efficient than the original Game Boy as it required fewer batteries. It takes two AAA batteries as opposed to four AA batteries which provide approximately 10 hours of gameplay.
The Game Boy Pocket comes in seven different colours; red, yellow, green, black, clear, silver, blue, and pink. There were several limited-edition Game Boy Pockets, including a gold-metal model exclusive to Japan.
