During E3 2016, Hyperkin finally revealed a working model of the Smart Boy which is expected to arrive in stores this December.
For those of you wondering how exactly the Smart Boy would function. It’ll act as a peripheral device. The Smart Boy has a separate slot for your game cartridge and one slot for your phone. Once the phone is inserted it’ll act as a functional Game Boy device.
The initial announcement which was a prank claimed that Smart Boy would also be available for iPhone users, the demo model shown at E3 was running on a Samsung device, and it is expected to be compatible with all Android devices.
