SmartBoy turns your Samsung Galaxy S8 into a Game Boy

Do you still have a pile of Game Boy and Game Boy Color cartridges gather dust in a drawer somewhere in your house AND do you also have a Samsung Galaxy S8? Then your retro dreams have just come true with SmartBoy.

SmartBoy from Hyperkin is a module that attaches to the bottom of your S8 (and a select group of other Android phones) to turn it into a Game Boy / Game Boy Color device right down to those iconic controller buttons.

This device doesn’t require batteries. It plugs into the Type-C port on the bottom of the S8. You supply the Game Boy cartridge and then all that’s left is to have fun playing your favorite games.

The SmartBoy is priced at $49.99 and will start shipping on 8/21/17. You can read more about it and check the device compatibility list at
