Gaming-specific smartphones are expected to reach 1.8% of the total smartphone shipments in India by end-2018, and possibly reach 6.5% by 2021, driven by the popularity of highly advanced mobile games such as PUBG and Fortnite, CMR said in a note.

 

“Given the technological advances, smartphone companies are now in a better position to bet on improving the mobile gaming experience, through features like HDR and high refresh rate screens that render more smoother on-screen visuals. While a majority of the smartphones in the market support mobile gaming, the rise of graphically intensive games like Fortnite and PUBG Mobile is making smartphone manufacturers to take note and cater to the demand,” said Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR.
