Samsung will cooperate with game developers such as Epic and Tencent, Hope to compete with Apple in mobile gaming field
On September 13th, 2023, Apple elegantly unveiled its iPhone 15 series at the autumn product launch. Among these, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, equipped with the state-of-the-art A17 Pro, showcased their formidable gaming prowess, seamlessly running blockbuster titles such as ‘Resident Evil 4: Remastered’, ‘Resident Evil 8: Village’, and ‘Assassin’s Creed: Mirage’.
Apple is currently forging collaborations with game developers to integrate an array of popular titles into their latest flagship smartphones, optimizing the gaming potential of the A17 Pro. As reported by Wccftech, Samsung harbors parallel ambitions. It’s in active collaborations with giants like Epic and Tencent to bring exclusive games for specific product lines, setting the stage for a riveting rivalry with Apple in the mobile gaming domain. Samsung is focusing on its unique foldable product lineup, believing that the distinct design of the Galaxy Flip/Fold offers a singular gaming experience.
With its succession of Galaxy Flip/Fold products, Samsung has cemented its position as a luminary in this niche market, boasting an expansive user base. Collaborating with game developers allows for the crafting of games tailored exclusively for these foldable devices, leveraging the screen design to its fullest potential rather than just offering a larger display.
Sources suggest that in addition to Epic and Tencent, the roster of collaborators includes renowned entities like Krafton Inc., Nexon Games Co., NCSOFT Corp., and Pearl Abyss Corp. Samsung’s joint endeavors with these game developers are still in nascent stages, and one might have to exhibit patience before witnessing substantive game releases. Simultaneously, Samsung is likely paying heed to peripheral designs such as external displays and wireless controller pairings, aiming to refine these in future product iterations.
