With the launch of smartphones, the usage of mobile phones has not been limited to just talking or messaging. Today’s smartphones can perform almost every task that we can do with a computer. This one is applicable for gaming also. Smartphone developers are very much concerned about the gaming performance of a smartphone. Almost every flagship device that is released is built so that they can perform well in games. Despite that, manufacturers separately launch ‘gaming phones’ which are specifically designed for gaming. Here is a list of a few upcoming gaming phones.
Asus ROG 5S
The ROG series, which stands for ‘Republic of Gamers’, is top-rated among all gamers. After the ROG series laptop, Asus launched the ROG series smartphone, keeping the mobile gamers in mind. Since then, Asus has maintained its position among the top 5 gaming phones globally with its ROG series phones, and this time, in November 2021, Asus is launching the ROG 5s. According to some sources and leaks, It’s going to have a snapdragon 888+ processor. It will come in 2 variants- one with 16Gb ram and 256GB storage and the other with 18GB ram and 512GB storage. It will have a 144Hz OLED panel as its display and a 6000mAh battery with 65W fast charging.
ZTE Nubia Red Magic 7 Pro
The ZTE Nubia Red magic series was nowhere nearly as popular now, and this smartphone series has earned its popularity. The Nubia Red Magic series is primarily known for availing gaming phones with cool gaming features at a much more reasonable price than other brands. ZTE plans to release the Nubia Red Magic 7, which is rumored to have a snapdragon 888+ chipset. The release date hasn’t been officially announced yet.
Sony Xperia 5 III
Although it is more of a productive phone which is more convenient for content creators, the Sony Xperia 5 III has what it takes to perform at gaming and benchmarks. It will come with the same chipset as the other gaming phones, the snapdragon 888 with a 5 nm technology. It will have 8 GB ram, and there will be a 128GB variant and a 256GB variant. The display will be an OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has been tested for benchmarks, and it has a score of 708394 in AnTuTu (v9) and a score of 3549 in GeekBench (v5.1).
Xiaomi Mix 4
The Mix series phones have always been the most highlighted phones from Xiaomi. Although it hasn’t been labeled as a ‘gaming phone by its manufacturer, the Xiaomi Mix phones have always competed with the gaming phones of the same generation and even outperformed them several times. Later this year, Xiaomi is launching the Mix 4, which will have the Snapdragon 888+ chipset with 5 nm technology. It’s gonna come in 4 variants- 8GB ram & 128GB storage, 8GB ram & 256GB storage, 12GB ram & 256GB storage and 12GB ram & 512GB storage. The display will be an AMOLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate and 800 nits brightness.
As the competition in the manufacture of gaming phones arises, the average costs are getting lowered. Some gaming phones focus entirely on power, whereas some focus on durability and power efficiency. Recently, the manufacturers are focusing on releasing more budget-friendly gaming phones, which can do the job while gaming and perform well with other features.
