The IP68-rated device sporting a 7.1-inch OLED display (120Hz LTPO panel) is capable of playing Nintendo’s best titles courtesy the Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. That big display and the graphics-intensive titles require a capable power source, hence, the 7000mAh battery paired with a 60-watt fast charger makes complete sense.
While all these above-mentioned specifications might seem normal to a gaming freak, those magnetic Joy-Cons will gravitate interest. When you’re in the mood for gaming, the attachments seamlessly hook onto the phone and instantly turn it into a portable gaming device. The gadget is far better than a gaming phone or modern mobile gaming controllers for powerful smartphones. Both the blue and red Joy-Cons have a system lock at the back to keep the whole unit in one piece as gaming action intensifies. When using the mobile device as a daily driver, the lids conceal the exposed magnetic tethers.
Both aesthetically and functionality-wise, the Nintendo Switch Phone makes complete sense in a world crowded with similar-looking phones, gadgets and the accompanying accessories. While we may never see such a phone released by Nintendo, still it lets us cling to the idea of this concept design!
