Mobile gaming has come a long way over the past two decades. From popular Snake game on Nokia phones with a monochrome display to 2D games on color screen phones and 3D gaming on smartphones, it has evolved a lot. We have seen Symbian OS phones like the Nokia N-Gage, early Android phones like the Sony Xperia Play and dual screen phones like the LG G8X ThinQ. And now, there is a completely new breed of gaming smartphones out there, such as the Asus ROG Phone 3, Razer Phone 2 and Lenovo Legion, which is much more than just flagships.
The gaming smartphones are more powerful than the regular flagship smartphones in terms of hardware, design and capabilities. In fact, popular features such as high refresh rate displays, vapour chamber cooling and dedicated gaming mode were first introduced in gaming smartphones. But what differentiates these special phones from regular flagship smartphones? And who are these phones meant for? We discuss all that and more in a podcast.
In the latest episode of ‘The Counterpoint Podcast’, host Maurice Klaehne is joined by Dinesh Sharma, Business Head, Commercial PC and Smartphone, Asus India, to talk about gaming smartphones, mobile gaming, 5G, cloud gaming and much more.
