Krafton has chosen Sony’s Xperia flagship devices as its official smartphone for the upcoming PUBG Mobile tournament 2022.
“The player experience is always of a top priority for PUBG MOBILE Esports so it felt natural and confident to enter a partnership with Sony’s Xperia™. We look forward to seeing our players showcasing an even stronger performance with their Xperia flagship series at our global tournaments this year” -James Yang, Director of PUBG Mobile Global Esports
The electronics manufacturer will supply its ‘state-of-art’ flagship devices to selected players for the Esports competition around the globe.
You might be wondering why a top tier gaming smartphone wasn’t picked. They could have picked the Asus ROG phone 5, Xiaomi’s Black shark 4, or even ZTE’s Red magic 7. Though if you look closely, the Sony Xperia 1 iii and the Xperia 5 iii have also been engineered for gaming (not as much as the ones mentioned earlier).
The display of the Xperia devices have 120 Hz refresh rates and 240 Hz touch sampling rates. Sony also took a major step by recording the finger movements of the players ,replicating them and fine tuning it.
The competition will be available to more regions this year. More details about the competition will publish very soon.
