Samsung's GamePad, a controller that's designed to make it easier to play games on mobile devices, will come in a bundle, a new leak suggests.

The folks over at All About Samsung in Germany on Thursday released a leaked image of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Game Edition. The bundle includes a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, HDMI adapter, and the GamePad. According to All About Samsung, the price has not been announced.

Samsung unveiled its GamePad earlier this week . The device holds Android devices ranging in size from 4 inches to 6.3 inches, but can also work with larger products via NFC or cable connectors.

When Samsung announced the GamePad this week, the company said only that it would be available in European markets. The company made no indication it would come as a bundle.

CNET has contacted Samsung for comment. We will update this story when we have more information.
