Honor introduced Gamepad at Gamescom

Gamescom 2019 is currently taking place in Cologne, Germany, where Honor introduced its own Gamepad. This is an attachment that goes on the left or right side of the phone and acts as a controller. It connects via Bluetooth and has its own 400mAh battery.

During the gaming conference, Honor released information that 18% of its users identify as gamers. The company, in their eyes, had to introduce a special accessory in order to cater to their needs. It’s compatible with most games, but you will be able to map keys differently if you so choose.

The Honor Gamepad can be connected to any smartphone, as it’s not restricted to Honor and Huawei phones. It can also be powered off the phone’s battery through USB-C port if its own battery runs dry.

Unfortunately, Honor did not say anything about pricing or availability, but we’re hoping to hear more about that soon.
