How Foldable Phones Will Revolutionise Mobile Gaming

How Foldable Phones Will Revolutionise Mobile Gaming

The creation of the foldable phone has potentially changed the mobile gaming scene forever. In August of 2022, Samsung released their Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the latest and most impressive foldable phone available to the public. Following the release of these phones, it was clear that the mobile gaming industry was about to see a big change.

These two phones both have screen sizes that are over 6.6 inches which allows people to have a much better gaming experience on their mobile phones compared to old smartphones. In addition to this, these foldable phones boast powerful hardware that enables the devices to have high refresh rates and impressive processor speeds, which are perfect for a smooth gaming experience.

The Advantages of Folding Smartphones

There are several advantages of folding smartphones compared to the standard smartphone that has attracted many people to potentially pick up this piece of advanced technology. The first one, of course, is the increased screen size which makes things like watching movies and TV shows extremely enjoyable. For those that are interested in watching sports, the foldable phone is the perfect solution to keep up to date with their favourite teams whilst on the go and still have a great viewing experience.

It is thought that foldable phones will drastically change how people will play video games on their mobile phones. First, the powerful hardware allows the foldable phone to run powerful games that demand a lot of power. One of the worst things that can happen whilst gaming is when your device starts to lag and even crash, and you end up losing all of your progress. Foldable phones reduce the chance of this happening greatly as they have been designed to withstand games and tasks that take a lot of power to run. In the future, we will likely see an increase in the number of games with a lot of detail and depth. For this reason, it is also likely that the number of people engaging in mobile gaming will increase as the gaming experience becomes even better over the next few years. 

The Boom in the Mobile Gaming Industry

It has been estimated that the mobile gaming industry will reach over 1.8 million users by the end of the year 2027. Looking at the history of the mobile gaming industry, you can see a trend beginning to grow. In 2017, the mobile gaming industry had a market volume of around $63 million. By 2022, the industry had grown to a market volume of over $164 billion. This incredible growth over five years shows that this industry is not planning on dying out any time soon, with forecasts of the market volume to only increase over the next four years. By 2027, it has been estimated that the market volume of the mobile gaming industry will be in the region of $240 billion.

This amazing growth can be attributed to the release of a number of extremely popular mobile games, such as PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile. PUBG Mobile alone has been downloaded over 1,120 million times which is truly a breathtaking stat considering not everyone in the world even has access to a smartphone. Call of Duty: Mobile generated revenue of a whopping $1.5 billion since its release. The potential of the mobile gaming industry has been noticed by many game developers who have brought out games that are playable on smartphones. An example of this is Activision, which recently said it would be releasing a new mobile game, Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile, sometime in 2023.

Thanks to advancements in technology, mobile games are more complex than ever, with the most obvious example being the growth in the popularity of battle royales. PUBG: New State, which is now known as New State Mobile, is a popular battle royale that was created by a video game company in South Korea and has racked up around 10 million downloads on phones with Android operating systems only. This version of PUBG has been praised for having better graphics and gameplay and offers an overall improved gaming experience for users. It is likely that we will see a number of these popular mobile games being re-released with improved features.

A Big Improvement on the Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra offers huge improvements which enable a much better gaming experience for users. Samsung has been at the forefront of foldable phones and is likely to continue being the leader in this new technology that is likely to have a powerful impact in the world of mobile gaming. Only time will tell how big the mobile industry will grow, but one thing that is certain is that it’s not going away any time soon.
