Mobile gaming has evolved a lot over the last few years, with games like PUBG Mobile and Clash Royale gaining immense popularity amongst young gamers. The company behind smash-hit games like PUBG Mobile and League Of Legends, Tencent Gaming is now setting its target towards gaming smartphones. The company is reportedly contacting smartphone brands such as ASUS, Xiaomi and Razer for a new gaming device that may be co-branded or self-branded. 

Xiaomi Black Shark 2

As per reports, the company may start working on such a device soon enough. In hindsight, ASUS released the ROG gaming smartphone in the month of October 2018, whereas the Razer Phone was launched in the market in November 2017. Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi released the first Black Shark smartphone in the early half of 2018. All of the aforementioned smartphone provided top-of-the-line specifications, which will be the case if Tencent finally releases a gaming smartphone.

Expected Specifications And Features

Razer Phone 2

Of course, no official announcement regarding such a gaming device has been made yet, but once it’s released, it is expected to feature one of the most powerful chipsets in the market, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. The device may pack 12GB RAM for seamless multi-tasking. Since the display is a crucial factor in gaming smartphones, the Tencent gaming smartphone is speculated to have nothing short of a 90 Hz display, or even a 120 Hz display which is present in the Razer Phone. Furthermore, the gaming smartphone will probably feature an advanced thermal-optimization system that will help keep the temperature of such a device in check.

Additionally, the Tencent gaming smartphone may feature a big battery to squeeze in extra game time. Since most gaming handsets feature fast charging, the Tencent device is expected to go down the same road. It is unclear as of now whether Tencent will move ahead with its decision, but once it happens, the smartphone will apparently be optimized for games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. Since Tencent also has a huge 40% stake in popular game publisher Epic Games, the smartphone may have the Epic Store pre-installed. Whatever the case may be, Tencent’s gaming smartphone is expected to receive rave reviews from the gaming society if and when the device makes its way to the smartphone market.
