Gaming on a smartphone isn’t something to be overlooked completely, despite what some people say. If you don’t like the idea of rubbing a glass during gaming, you can choose to simply connect a controller via Bluetooth to your portable device, and you’re all set.
Qualcomm will soon lend you a hand in the process, as the company will prove that it knows to create something else than powerful processors. The firm headquartered in San Diego is working alongside Asus for creating new smartphones for gaming.
Snapdragon 875-based phones
The upcoming gadgets will be based on the Snapdragon 875 processor, a piece that will be a true goldmine when it comes to gaming. Considering that the predecessor Snapdragon 865 debuted for the Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup and was also present on the OnePlus 8 series, you can imagine for yourself how powerful can the 875 be. The new phones are expected to arrive during late 2020, and we’re eagerly waiting to find out some precise monikers for those gadgets.
There are currently a lot of smartphones ideal for gaming, and we can mention some of them: Razer Phone 2, Asus ROG Phone II, Xiaomi Black Shark 3, OnePlus 7 Pro, Apple iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, Sony Xperia 1, and Huawei P30 Pro. It will be exciting to see if Qualcomm’s future gadgets will be able to surpass the ones mentioned previously.
Razer Phone 2 takes the cake
Razer Phone 2 is considered the number one option by many people when it comes to powerful phones for gaming. There’s no wonder why, as the gadget packs IP67 dust/water resistance, a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, an IGZO IPS LCD with a refresh rate of 120Hz, and an Adreno 630 GPU. The phone costs around 850 euros, but it’s worth it.
Hopefully, Qualcomm won’t be overlooking at all its activity in creating chipsets once it starts manufacturing smartphones.
