OnePlus gaming triggers have launched in India. They are available for purchase in the country. The brand had teased the gaming triggers at the launch event of OnePlus 9 series last month.
The OnePlus gaming triggers are compatible with other Android and iOS phones and not just limited to OnePlus devices. However, the accessory can support devices that are less than 11.5mm thick with screen protectors and a back case on. The OnePlus gaming triggers are aimed at mobile gamers who dislike touch controls and want a controller-like experience.
OnePlus gaming triggers specifications and features
The OnePlus gaming triggers can be clipped on to the side of any smartphone. Each trigger has one shoulder button with an Omron switch that provides tactile feedback based on what happens in-game. The game triggers can be used on both the left and right side of the device. In terms of dimensions, each trigger measures 37.6 x 28.8 x 25.2mm and weighs 22g. They are made of plastic and zinc alloy materials.
OnePlus says that the accessory is designed specifically for popular battle royale games including PUBG, Call of Duty, Free Fire and more.
The OnePlus gaming triggers interact with the smartphone’s display through capacitive conduction for a quick response. The brand added that the screen protectors may hinder touch sensitivity leading to inconsistencies. False touch may also occur while using the triggers due to high touch sensitivity on some mobile phones.
