As the gaming industry continuously grows, more games and consoles flood the market. Now, another gaming console has joined the growing list of Android micro-games consoles, the TCL T2.
TCL, the Chinese electronics maker has just launched its first Android-powered video game console + game controller called TCL T2.
TCL T2 comes in a small box with an Allwinner A31 quad-core processor, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a wireless game controller that features analog sticks, the D-pad (aside from the usual gaming buttons that includes 4 shoulder buttons). Moreover, T2 comes with USB connections, a micro USB port, HDMI, and Ethernet.
Gamers will surely love the Allwinner A31 quad-core processor as it is based around four ARM Cortex-A7 CPUs and a PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU. With this, the console is empowered to handle 4K ultra high definition videos. This means that gamers can play and enjoy any graphically intense games available now in the market.
The PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU operates at 350 MHz, while the A31 is shipped out with each A7 core at 1GHz, moreover, this can be expanded to 1.2 GHz. Reports also said the A31 will come with its own built-in video decode and encode blocks which has the ability to decode 4K content at 30 per second.
In the game titles, reports said that TCL has partnered with Gameloft, a pioneer of mobile gaming to bring games to TCL T2. Some of the titles which are expected to come with T2 are Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, World at Arms, GT Racing 2, and Dungeon Hunter 4.
Rumors said that TCL has borrowed heavily from the Ouya controller when it comes to the design but the ?TCL T2 has even more buttons.
TCL T2 Android micro-games consoles will be launched in China this week for around $110. Worldwide availability of the console is expected to come soon.
