Nintendo 4DS Concept May Just Save Handheld Consoles

We here at Concept Phones are big gamers and we sure love a good old fashioned console, like the Nintendo 3DS or the PS Vita. How about the future? While Sony and Nintendo may seem doomed because of tablets and smartphones, concepts still show some potential.

Nintendo 4DS concept

David Quijada imagined a Nintendo 4DS concept, that’s shown in the picture above. What we get is the usual dual display setup, only this time with a huge widescreen display up top and a smaller one at the bottom, flanked by controls. The device is much longer than usual and also a bit fancier, if you ask me.

The buttons are also bigger, there’s an SD card slot on the side and possibly a HDMI port in there somewhere. The device should at least support HD resolution on the big screen and maybe QHD on the smaller one. Considering the popularity of MediaTek CPUs, I’d integrated one here, accompanied by 1.5 GB of SDRAM, 16 GB of storage, Bluetooth and WiFi. Sounds nifty, right?

    I predict the 3DS successor will have a 700MHZ quad-core ARM Cortex A5 for CPU, DMP SMAPH-S for GPU and 200Mhz Ceva DSP for sound and one pool of very fast 128 MB “embedded” FCRAM for Backwards Compatibility and as a buffer in native games and 512MB of slower LPDDR2 external of the CPU. These chips are evolved versions of the current 3DS chips and would allow for Backwards Compatibility

    HDMI is enough for me to buy any console nintendo offers, I won’t have to blitz through every 3DS game I play, and wait for a slow perfectionist grind when emulators are finished. Sure, its only 480p max, but even that on my 65″ UHD is better than pretending it is crispy on a puny screen – and ruin my eyes in the process. Afterall, methodical grind and eye health do not match, and I’d know what I prefer ;p
