Remember this mock up? This I would like


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)

If it could play games on the go, sure.
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!

only if it was a phone with a gamepad that slid out...
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.

Your opinion, many people would buy it, no one mentioned android but you!

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 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.
