Though its first mockup drew obvious inspiration from the Xbox controller, Samsung unveils its totally revamped Smartphone GamePad. Moving from a white paint job with familiar button coloring, the newly designed black gradient gamepad plays hosts to a few cosmetic as well as technical enhancements. On the outside, Samsung swaps its raised analog sticks for a concaved one, and replaces the A,X, Y and B buttons with dots pointing to the four ordinal directions rather than your typical cardinal points. Under its hood so to speak, the Bluetooth compatible gaming accessory works with smartphones running Android 4.1 or higher with screen sizes ranging from 4 to 6.3 inches. Samsung is also said to introduce its Mobile Console app with up to 35 titles available at launch. Rumor has it that the updated gamepad is currently available in select European markets, but the brand declined to provide specifics on where and for how much.
