PUBG Mobile operates in the e-sports industry, where professional players and teams from around the world compete against each other. It’s a lucrative industry, highly watched and therefore attractive to sponsors.
This year, PUBG Mobile will host several competitive eSports tournaments. In addition to regional leagues around the world, there will be one major event – the PUBG Mobile Global Championship.
As PUBG Mobile is a game for phones, players will need a suitable smartphone. Perhaps surprisingly, Sony Xperia has become the official partner of the competitive tournaments. These details are reported by GSM Arena.
Sony will provide its top smartphones to all professional players who will fight for the highest positions in the global tournament. The Sony Xperia 1 (III) and Xperia 5 (III), meanwhile, don’t act like gaming smartphones at all.
In recent years several models have appeared on the market, many more extravagant. However, Sony Xperia devices will enjoy the association with the PUBG Mobile brand.
Even if it doesn’t seem like it, the technologists at Sony have gone to great lengths to ensure that their top smartphones meet the highest demands of gamers. Ever since the Mark II generation, they have been consulting with professional gamers in the mobile industry about smartphone capabilities.
Among other things, for example, they recorded gamers’ finger movements, which allowed them to optimise the screen for the best mobile gaming performance. The Xperia 1 (III)’s OLED display has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch response rate of 240 Hz. This makes it ideal for gaming, which ultimately goes for the powerful 5nm Qualcomm chipset.
Xperia smartphones are not among the best sellers, although they are good quality and well equipped. Working with PUBG Mobile may help them get wider exposure. At least in the mobile gaming community.
