Huawei Tron, A New Android Gaming Console Announced


Huawei Tron

Following the footsteps of Ouya, Huawei launched its own budget Android gaming console, called the Huawei Tron.

In comparison to the Ouya console of last year, the Huawei Tron has beefier hardware, and it’s a little bigger. It has a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 2GB RAM and up to 32GB storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0 slot, HDMI-out, and runs on Android 4.2 Jellybean. It comes with a full-fledged controller, which has a circle-shaped touchpad in the center.

Unfortunately, as sweet as it sounds, there’s a turning point, which doesn’t lie within the console, but in the Android ecosystem: there aren’t many games at the moment that are optimized for consoles, but once devices like the Tron start to appear more often, that gap will be quickly filled with games suited to be played on the big screens.

Huawei will launch the Tron console in a short time in China for slightly under $120. We haven’t got information whether it will launch outside of its homeland or not, but we hope Huawei clears that out soon.
