Huawei's Honor sub-brand talked about its gaming plans at gamescom today, announcing the Honor GamePad. The GamePad is exactly what it sounds like; it's a gaming controller for your phone. It interacts with the device via Bluetooth, but it also has a 400mAh battery that can top up your handset with a USB Type-C connection.
It looks a bit unorthodox, since it only connects to one side of the phone. There's a joystick that's included, as well as six buttons that the camera can interact with.
The company also touted some of the gaming innovations that it's already made, such as the GPU Turbo feature that was introduced last year. The Honor 20 Pro includes GPU Turbo 3.0, which now supports over 30 games including PUBG and Arena of Valor, and the handset has a graphene cooling system that's meant to keep the device cool to boost performance for longer.
Honor also called out the time-of-flight sensor that's in the View20. This allows for motion-controlled games, such as Fancy Skiing and Fancy Darts.
The Huawei sub-brand said that it will be pre-installing more games on its smartphones; more specifically, it will pre-install games that make use of the gaming technology that Huawei uses.
