Nintendo’s NX console has sparked up the imagination of many people, with a supposed launch date of March 2017, but we’ve got the next best thing today. I’m talking about the Morphus X300, an Android-based gaming tablet, that features two wireless controllers able to slide on to the sides of the tablet.
This model is created by Chinese firm Aikun and the result is pretty close to what we define as the Nintendo NX. This product has a HDMI port, glasses free 3D effects and it won’t support cartridges, unlike the Nintendo NX. Games are downloaded and stored internally, or on the microSD card slot. The Aikun model has been pictured on the web for a while now, with the project getting Indiegogo funding.
Sadly, it didn’t achieve its goal, but that didn’t stop Aikun from selling it for $300 a pop on its site. Morphus X300 isn’t the first attempt at a tablet with controllers, since the Razer Edge Pro came with the same basic concept. This device runs Android 5.1.1, integrates an 8 megapixel back camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, dual band WiFi and an octa core Cortex A7 CPU.
This gaming unit has a 5200 mAh battery and it weighs 480 grams without controller and 650 grams with.
