It is only important that they have a USB-C connector, since when developing new products in 2019, the creators did not add micro USB support.

The gadget is equipped with a 400 mAh battery, it can be used as a power bank. This means that the controller not only does not discharge the phone, but if necessary even recharges it.


Externally, the device looks like a Nintendo joystickSwitch, with the exception of the adapter for wireless operation, which is not provided in the Honor GamePad. The gamepad has six buttons (including a trigger at the top) and an analog stick.

Automatic configuration determines the purpose of the keys in most games, but if necessary and with certain skills they can be reassigned to you.


Although the price and release date have not yet been disclosed, the controller plans to launch sales in Europe before the end of the year.
