Last February, developers were able to run a version of Android adapted to the Nintendo Switch. Now, this port has received new images and promises to turn the hybrid console into a tablet.
In addition to playing specific titles for mobile devices, the modified system allows you to consume media – due to Netflix and YouTube support – send the display to a larger screen for HDMI – and connect a keyboard and mouse via the three USB ports on the base of the video game. See the pictures:
The Android port is possible due to the presence of the Tegra X1 chipset and the 4 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The platform is based on the lineages 15.1 ROM for NVIDIA Shield. In addition, the user will not worry about bans when using the services of Nintendo, since the system dispenses the microSD card.
While the PUBG Mobile game does not work with Joycons or allow maximum graphics configuration, other games enable the use of side controls, but only in wireless mode – even if they are physically connected to the device.
On the other hand, Pokémon GO, Snapchat or Google Duo cannot be rotated in the Switch in this method, since the device does not have GPS, microphone and camera built-in.
It is worth remembering that the Android port for the hybrid console from Nintendo has already allowed also to run Overwatch on the Switch. It remains to wait to know when your debut will be to the public and what other resources will count.
