Earlier this month a prototype for the new Samsung Galaxy S4 Game Pad was unveiled, providing gamers with the choice of using physical buttons and controls whilst gaming on their new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone, rather than the touch screen gestures.
Last week the name of the new controller was uncertain but it now looks like the Samsung Galaxy S4 peripheral is called the Game Pad, after all.
The Samsung Game Pad is equipped with easy to use one click Bluetooth pairing with the Samsung Galaxy S4 via Samsung’s NFC Tectile technology, and even though its has been designed for the Samsung Galaxy S4, however is will accept mobile devices equipped with Bluetooth and 4 up to 6.3 inch screens.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Game Pad provides extra precision whilst gaming, offering dual analog sticks, shoulder buttons, and 4 action buttons, and even includes a home remote control function for an enhanced home gaming experience. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Game Pad is now available to pre-order for $113. Samsung explains a little more:
“Take advantage of the Galaxy S4’s octal-core (eight processing cores) processor by transforming it into a powerful mobile gaming device. Enjoy blistering game speed and impressive graphics on your S4 by combining it with the official Samsung S4 Game Pad.
Designed for the Galaxy S4, the Samsung Game Pad includes an adjustable clamp design which securely holds your phone securely within the pad so you can game on the go. Because it is suitable for 4″ – 6.3″ the Samsung Galaxy S4 Game Pad can be used with even the largest smartphones.”
“The Samsung Galaxy S4Game Pad includes all of the controls and buttons you would expect on a console-based games controller. These include select, start, back, home and menu buttons as well as four action buttons, shoulders keys, an omni-directional d-pad and dual analog sticks. This ensures that you can play your mobile games just as you play console games with all the interactivity and gaming performance a quality gaming pad provides.”
