Razer's Junglecat Controllers For Android, Nintendo Switch-Style

You can use the Junglecat controller in two ways.

As announced by Razer, the company has already rolled out two gaming accessories for smartphones. One of the latest gears is a controller model called Junglecat, which specifically works with not only smartphones but also compatible with desktop computers.

Junglecat controllers are also compatible with desktop computers. 

At first glance, the Junglecat looks very similar to the design of Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con. You can use the controller in two ways. Firstly, users can use a supplied smartphone case, attach the Junglecat to both two sides of it, then plug the smartphone into the case. On the other hand, users can also pair the controllers with non-supported Android devices and Windows desktops as well, by attaching Junglecat to the controller grip.

A notable function differentiating Razer’s controllers and Joy-Con is that Junglecat doesn’t support a two-player experience as it doesn’t allow two people to use two halves at the same time. Of course, there is no game that supports inputs from multiple controllers on a mobile device.

At the time, the company hasn’t given any support for iOS devices yet.

So far, the case designs have just been limited to some smartphone models around the world. In the US, the list includes Samsung Galaxy S10+, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and Razer Phone 2. For the rest of the world, owners of Samsung Galaxy S10+, Razer Phone 2, and Huawei P30 Pro will have the chance to test it out.

The Junglecat will arrive in other smartphones with a controller grip in tow. At the time, the company hasn’t given any support for iOS devices yet, although Apple’s iOS often gets new games prior to Android, and it also has excellent inbuilt controller support.

The Bluetooth-enabled controllers promise a very low latency as well as a powerful battery lasting for 100 hours of use, with a price tag of $100.
