Samsung Preparing Docking Bluetooth Game Pad for Galaxy Range

While we didn't see anything thrilling or innovative in Samsung's safe Galaxy S4 launch last night, it did have an interesting piece of hardware to show off backstage: an official Samsung wireless game controller.

According to Samsung's S4 accessories teaser page, the Samsung game controller is currently know as the Game Pad, simply offering a nice little Bluetooth-enabled way of playing games on your Galaxy S4′s massive 1080p display. The device runs on two AAA batteries, features dual analogue sticks and shoulder buttons for that "hardcore" gaming experience, plus the docking clamp's adaptable so it can fit most phones and tablets.

Currently there are no pricing details, but if it was low enough this thing could really wipe the floor. [Engadget via Techradar]
