Samsung Galaxy S 4 Game Pad Offers Support for 6.3 Inch Devices, Feels Like an Xbox Accessory
Samsung’s Game Pad accessory is a very interesting piece of gear, with an expanding clamp that will accommodate 5+ inch devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and maybe the Galaxy Note III. The latter is rumored to have a 6.3 inch screen, so maybe that’s why this size is mentioned in the supported device areas.
In case you’re thinking this is an unofficial gizmo, guess again, since Samsung published it on the officially accessory page on the Galaxy S 4 microsite. They’re strangely specific about the 6.3 inch diagonal, maybe a sign of what’s coming: Galaxy Note III. Just for the sake of mentions, this means that you could use this accessory with the 6.1 inch Ascend Mate from Huawei.
The controller features one touch Bluetooth pairing, via NFC tectile, fill control with optimized buttons and dual analog stick, shoulder keys and 4 action buttons. There’s also remote control function for home gaming experience and if you pair up your Galaxy S 4 with the TV via MHL, the experience will become a hardcore living room gaming session.
