Samsung Galaxy Tab Game Edition leaks with tablet controller

Following the introduction of the Samsung GamePad, the company looks set to give its tablets a gaming themed makeover as the Samsung Galaxy Tab Game Edition bundle leaks.

Although the bundle deal has yet to be officially announced by the Korean manufacturer, images have leaked of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Game Edition which sees an 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet boxed alongside a Samsung GamePad Bluetooth controller and a HDMI adapter.

Allowing owners to forgo the now familiar but still clumsy and inhibiting on-screen tablet gaming controls, the Samsung GamePad will act as a wirelessly connected input peripheral for both tablets and smartphones.

Although the 8-inch tablet included in the bundle deal cannot be docked with the controller, the GamePad is capable of being attached to smartphones between 4-inches and 6.3-inches in size.

This size allowance means the Samsung GamePad can be comfortably used with everything from your Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, all the way up to the Samsung Galaxy Mega.

What’s more, with the accompanying HDMI adaptor, those keen on snapping up the Samsung Galaxy Tab Game Edition will be able to connect their new Android tablet to their PC for console-esque gaming experiences.

It is currently unclear when, or indeed if the Samsung Galaxy Tab Game Edition will be made available in the UK. Pricing details for the bundle are also still unclear.
