Razer is again launching new gaming accessories for game lovers. This time the company officially presents Kishi, a universal controller that is aimed specifically at Android mobile users.
Previously, the figure of Razer Kishi was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020 which was held in last January in Las Vegas, USA. Kishi is installed on the right and left side of the phone so it looks to be a similar Nintendo Switch console.
The installation is quite easy. Users only need to insert their smartphones in the center of the controller.
Razer Kishi among others is equipped with a D-Pad 8 directions, two analog tiggers, as well as two other buttons located on the back.
To perform settings on the device, the user installs the Razer Kishi app on the smartphone that is now available in the Google Play Store.
Connection with the phone is done via USB-C connector. By connecting directly, Razer Kishi is claimed to be experiencing no lag or delay when used.
Because the USB-C port cannot be used by other devices when the user installs Kishi, Razer also advises the player to use another connection mode, such as Bluetooth, to connect the headset, for example.
Currently Razer Kishi can be used on Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus, Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL, Pixel 3 and 3 XL, Pixel 4 and 4 XL, and Razer Phone 1 and 2.
Compiled from Phone Arena on Thursday (11/6/2020), Razer Kishi has a official for USD80 and can already be obtained through Razer Store and Amazon ecommerce. Razer also plans to launch a similar controller for the iOS (iPhone) device around the middle of this year.
