Nintendo NX Dock To Feature USB 3.0 Port, Camera And Microphone Won’t Be Built Into The Device, Battery Life Won’t Be Great – Rumor
September is finally here, and with the new month, some official news regarding the Nintendo NX should be coming in. Nothing has been said yet about the upcoming console, but more rumored details have emerged online today.
The new Nintendo NX rumored details have come in thanks to Emily Rogers, who has received them from a variety of sources. According to a new rumor recap she has posted on her blog, the Nintendo NX dock, whose prototype was rumored to have 2 USB ports, will actually feature 2 USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port.
More details have also emerged on the camera and microphone, which have been an important feature of the most recent Nintendo consoles. According to Emily Rogers, they both won’t be built into the NX portable device, something that gives more weight to the detachable controllers rumor, as they could be built into the controllers.
Speaking about controllers, the Nintendo NX is going to be slightly different from the Wii U Gamepad and the New Nintendo 3DS, as the right analogue stick will apparently be placed below the face buttons. Additionally, the console will feature at least two should buttons.
Lastly, Emily Rogers also talked about the Nintendo NX battery life, and things don’t sound too good. She doesn’t know precisely about hours, but apparently battery life is not going to be great.
All the other details included in today’s recap have been revealed previously, such as the 720p, 6.2 inch multi touch screen, the 32GB of internal storage and the lack of region locking.
