Singapore-based Razer Inc. introduced the Junglecat, a dual-sided controller designed for the Razer II gaming phone.

The Junglecat looks a lot like the Joy-Con controller of the Nintendo Switch. The device will help improve your execution and precision when you play a game on Razer II. The controller is fully detachable and can easily be attached to any compatible device, not just the Razer II. For instance, you can also use it for the Huawei P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and the Samsung S10+. For now, however, the Junglecat is only available for Android devices.


The controller comes with three custom cases, which help secure it to your phone. You can either attach only the left side or the right side of the controller. Alternatively, you can attach both sides to your phone. But the Junglecat also comes with an adapter so you can use it as a standalone controller. With this, you can use the controller and pair it with the other Android devices or even your PC through Bluetooth.

You can also stream your game to your smart TV if your smartphone, like Razer II, features video output.

When you buy the Junglecat, there are two variations. One box contains a controller and a grip, as well as cases for Razer II, Samsung Galaxy S10+, and Huawei P30 Pro. The other box contains the same components, except they are compatible with Razer Ii, Samsung S10+, and Galaxy Note 9.

The gadget boasts of 100 hours or more of battery life. For comparison, the Joy-Con controllers for Nintendo Switch will only last you for about 20 hours. Also, you can use only one side of the controller, and it works just fine. The controller uses Bluetooth Low Energy connection, and you charge it using USB-C.

You need to install the Razer Gamepad app to use the controllers. However, the installation is very easy as long as you follow the steps. The app also allows you to create your own profile and customize the buttons. You can also control the sensitivity according to your preferences. This is vital to improve accuracy when playing first-person shooter games.
