Nintendo is reportedly considering a gaming phone of its own
As revealed by sources close to Taiwanese electronics component suppliers, Nintendo is currently reconsidering its previous decision to not enter the smartphone market. No specifics about the new plans were provided, but if the brand does move ahead with a smartphone of its own, it'll probably be developed with Nintendo Switch connectivity in mind – this should allow users to share game data and other information between the devices.
Over the past year or so, the gaming smartphone market has become increasingly competitive with releases from the likes of Razer, Xiaomi, Asus, and Nubia. But if Nintendo can successfully differentiate its own offering and offer it at a lower price – as it does with its consoles – the Japanese brand may feel very little heat from the high-end competitors.
