Samsung has announced a wireless game controller for smartphones and tablets running Android 4.1 platform with Bluetooth connectivity.

The steel-framed controller grasps your phone as you work the knobs and buttons to play your favorite games. The GamePad can hold Android devices ranging in screen size from 4 inches to 6.3 inches, meaning it’s basically engineered for phones but can certainly squeeze in a phablet.

At just 195 grams, the GamePad features an eight way D-pad, two analog sticks, four action buttons, two trigger buttons, a select button, a start button and a ‘play’ button. Users can also use a HDMI cable connection to mirror the display on wide screen TVs, or use the AllShare app support for wireless display mirroring, requiring Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and above.

For now, the GamePad is available in select number of European countries. However, Samsung promises that it will launch in additional regions in the coming weeks but didn’t specify such markets.
