Turning your current-gen smartphone into an all-encompassing gaming rig isn’t something new; in fact, renowned companies like Razer have been releasing adaptable gear for the industry’s most capable variants for years. Now, to bolster their catalog for the holiday season, the lauded peripheral company has announced the Junglecat — a modular dual-sided controller that’s been optimized to take your Android device to the next level.
The Junglecat arrives just in time for Christmas, and to the chagrin of your online opponents, it brings console-like controller performance to the realm of handheld devices. The peripheral’s sleek, shadowy design is characteristically Razer and calls upon a set of twin analog thumbsticks and bumper buttons to keep you at the top of your game. You’ll be able to dominate the battlefield with a slew of preset control profiles or custom button layouts, and take advantage of the device’s desirable low-latency connection, Bluetooth connectivity, and sensitivity adjustment function on your favorite Android devices. But the $99 Junglecat is far more versatile than it may seem; it also allows you to practice your precision and accuracy on, and off, of your smartphone, converting into a standalone controller that pairs with other Android devices and Windows PCs when you’re not on-the-go.
