CHINESE GAMING TABLET LETS YOU PLAY THE RUMORED NX CONCEPT TODAY

Chinese peripheral maker Aikun has a gaming tablet device that looks strikingly similar to the rumored concept behind the Nintendo’s next gaming platform, codename NX.The Morphus X300 is an Android-based gaming tablet that has dual 2.4 Ghz wireless controllers that magnetically snap onto the sides, an 8.0 megapixel rotating camera, and a built-in HDMI out — so you can output games to a TV. Unlikethe last batch of NX rumors, it doesn’t use cartridges. Games must be downloaded to the system internally, and it supports expanded storage up to 128 GB via microSD.

Aikun China Electronics Company’s gaming tablet has a 45000 mAh battery that lasts 5 hours, and the controllers are charged by the base unit. It was shown publicly as early as June 2015. Aikun sought crowdfunding via Indiegogo for the Morphus X300, but it closed without hitting its funding goal. Despite this, theMorphus X300 appears to be available for purchase on Aikun’s website for $300 USD.

The Morphus X300 isn’t the first tablet-controller hybrid device. Razor launched theRazor Edge Pro, which could be called the voltron of gaming tables since it supported several different modes. One was a mobile console mode that snapped into a split gamepad controller. And there are others, like the Gamevice controller peripherals that snap onto phones and tablets.

Nintendo has said it will talk about NX in 2016 but going into October, the company has yet to officially reveal the concept behind its next gaming platform. Back in July,it was reported that NX will be a portable handheld console with detachable controllers. It is also rumored that NX will use Nvidia’s Tegra mobile processor and play games off of physical cartridges.
