Qualcomm and Tencent will work together on optimizing Android smartphones for gaming and 5GIt looks like the smartphone business is placing its bets on what has been largely considered a very narrow niche in the market - high-end mobile gaming. MediaTek released a gaming-dedicated chipset series - Helio G90 and Helio G90T, Asus, Xiaomi and nubia continue their lineups of smartphone gaming brands and many manufacturers add gaming features to smartphones that are not designed specifically for that. One interesting collaboration in this context is the one between Qualcomm and Tencent, announced today.

Qualcomm Wireless Communications Technologies (China) Limited, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, and Tencent Games have agreed to work together on gaming mobile devices and 5G solutions. More specifically, Tencent will optimize its games for Snapdragon Elite gaming chipsets on Android devices and both companies will create a 5G version of a Tencent-backed gaming phone. They have already worked together on the Asus ROG Phone II and have agreed to jointly work on a 5G gaming phone.

Steven Ma, Senior Vice President at Tencent, said: "Tencent has worked closely with Qualcomm Technologies and we are very pleased that the strategic cooperation announced today has deepened and expanded the relationship between the two parties. We hope that fostering cooperation between both parties can utilize our respective technologies and R&D expertise to further innovate the game industry, thereby bringing better game quality and interactive experience to users."

Frank Meng, Chairman of Qualcomm China, said: "With 30 years of innovation under our belt, we're ushering in a new age of gaming. Mobile gaming, an important 5G use case, will soon take advantage of the next generation of connectivity. Faster speeds, more bandwidth, and cutting edge ultra-low latency will support real-time, multi-player and immersive gaming experience. We look forward to this new cooperation with Tencent Games to enrich lives and transform gaming behaviors on a global scale."Източник
