Samsung has revealed that it will be launching the GamePad accessory in the Indian market next month. It will be available sometime in the end of January for INR 4,999.
Originally announced just a few days back, Samsung GamePad is currently on sale in select European markets and gives smartphone/ tablet gamers a choice to use a controller to play Android games rather than using the on-screen controls.
GamePad can be used with any device running Android 4.1 or above but as expected it gives best performance when used with Samsung devices with Android 4.3 or above.
“The Smartphone GamePad instantly transforms the user’s Galaxy smartphone or tablet into a portable gaming console or even a home console. Through its premium, easy-to-carry design and durable steel frame, GamePad is attachable to mobile devices ranging from 4-inches to 6.3-inches, allowing users to play games wherever they are. Users can also connect Galaxy devices to their TV through an HDMI cable or AllShare Screen Mirroring for video game console experience from their living room,” Samsung explains in a press release.
