Concept Video Showcases Nintendo WiiPhone Running On Android

August 5, 2015 - Written By John Anon

Over the past few months there had been a ton of speculation about certain manufacturers bringing to market an android device. While that is all the norm in the android world, these years speculation has been that bit more interesting due to some of the manufacturers not being traditional (or at least current) android smartphone makers. The biggest of the rumors of late have surrounded the notion that BlackBerry are planning on releasing a BlackBerry android smartphone (or even two) and that Nokia are planning on releasing a Nokia branded android smartphone. Although, in Nokia’s case, this seems a lot further away than for BlackBerry.

Well, another manufacturer who has been seeing speculation grew about them, is Nintendo. Being a games company (and one of the most popular), the idea of them bringing a smartphone to the android ecosystem (or any Android Nintendo device) is one that naturally attracts a good deal of attention thanks to what is presumed to be an instant association with a high-focus on gaming smartphone. Well, if you have been hoping for a Nintendo android smartphone anytime soon, then you might want to check out this concept video put together by CURVED/labs.

The video showcases what a Nintendo android smartphone could possibly be like and it is quite an interesting proposition. While the specs being touted in the video are nothing to shout about, the pull out gaming controls will be something that is likely to be a feature many Nintendo fans would like to see in a real-life “WiiPhone”. In terms of these specs, the video makes a point of noting that the WiiPhone comes equipped with a 4.5-inch display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front facing camera, 4G LTE, NFC and GPS. Additional features on offer, include wireless charging and a port so that DS games could be directly inserted and played. The device runs on Android and comes with an assumed Wii UI over the top.
