At Gamescom 2019, the HONOR brand presented an original gadget that can turn a smartphone into a game console. Branded gamepad is notable not only for compatibility with many models of devices but also the function of power Bank — it is able to recharge the gadget directly in the virtual battle.
The GamePad got five buttons, an analog stick, and an extra trigger on the top. Control settings, according to the manufacturer, can be changed depending on the specifics of the game. Representatives of the brand did not say whether the gamepad is compatible only with certain models — but judging by the published render, the dimensions of the mount can be adjusted to a specific model — presumably, the accessory is compatible with most current smartphone models.
The controller connects to Android devices via USB Type-C only for charging, pairing is done via Bluetooth connection. The built-in battery with a capacity of 400 mAh not only ensures the operation of the controller but also allows you to recharge the smartphone itself. The function of charging the GamePad from the gadget is also supported.
The European release of HONOR GamePad will take place before the end of this year, the price of the new item will be announced later.
