    Nintendo Phone if it had new hardware:
    • #1 MUST HAVE some sort of personal stylus that would be great and amazing feature for games
    • Amazing 6"+ HD display with great ppi, like 400+
    • Good camera 12+ Megapixels
    • 4/6 GBs of RAM
    • A removable battery with 4000+ mAh
    • USB TYPE C please and thank you
    • Slap a Tegra X2 chipset or something better
    • 32/64GB with Expandable Storage

    People usually don't think about this, but when buying a phone, with comparable specs and a contract, they end up paying for $800+ while paying for it 'monthly'.
    With this Nintendo Phone, you'd essentially pay for the ability to play Nintendo games on it, while still having a good phone that will last at least 2+ years. Take a look at the video that @BurningDesire posted to have and idea of what it would look like, and that joystick/controller dock would be the cherry on top ♥.
    (compare with the Google Pixle C for $500)

    Think of it as a device that replaces the current/future handhelds from Nintendo! So you'd be able to play Mario/Pokemon/Xenoblade and whatever Nintendo comes out with!

    That would be a good idea as well, lol Sidekick phones making a comeback

    No one would buy it, since it will run android and you can just spoof your own hardware to run the software.
    And its nintendo, quality built devices they are not known for.

    I'd be apprehensive if anything, based on Nintendo's recent business maneuvers.

    Depend if the games were good as that would be the only good part as it would have a serve lack of apps.

    Replaces? Ugh.

    Though, if it played N64 and up I'd buy it.

    I really wouldn't buy it. There would be some odd caveat if Nintendo released this specific device. I know it's a fan render and what have you. I just don't think it'd be practical enough.

    The specs are more than good enough its just if you could get an emulator working is the issue.

    The specs i mentioned have the ability to play WiiU graphics (assuming the tegra X2 is twice as powerful as it's predecessor)

    To be honest the ability to get Wiiu graphics mobile is either already here or getting dangerously close.
