DigiTimes rumours over the years have been interesting and a lot of them haven’t amounted to anything, but sometimes, they do get it spot on. This time the technology site is reporting that they have heard rumours that Nintendo is planning to once again develop a smartphone. They state that they have heard that the gaming themed handset will be able to integrate with the Nintendo Switch. Remember this is a rumour, so only time will tell if it is correct.
Despite the fact that gaming handsets are a niche-market segment, other players including Xiaomi, Vivo, Nintendo and Nubia are either strengthening their presence in the market or planning to enter it, said the sources.
There have been speculations about Nintendo planning to launch a gaming handset that can integrate with its Switch consoles, the Japan-based vendor has yet to respond to such speculations.
