Qualcomm Is All Set To Launch A Gaming Console Powered By Android
Just hearing the name Qualcomm reminds us of their mobile chipset and modem, but it is reported Qualcomm is preparing to launch an Android gaming console as soon as next year in order to extend its hardware business into a completely new market. To be precise, Qualcomm is working on a gaming console similar to the Nintendo Switch, but powered by Android, which they hope to release to the market next year.
Most likely the device will be powered by the next chipset to be released later this year, after the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, in addition to the usual features like expanded storage, cellular support, Bluetooth, GPS, haptic feedback, and accelerometers for cloud gaming over 5G technology. It is reported that steps will be taken to start a partnership with service providers to provide assistance.
The Android 12 experience would be further personalized with a dedicated launcher, and the console would allow controller input, which would be created by a third-party company, according to the cited source. This will also feature a 6,000 mAh battery and is expected to hit the market for around US $ 300.
It also has a library of fantastic games that only it can enjoy. According to the Verge, although there are plenty of good gaming experiences on Android, including retro emulators and games like Fortnite and Genshin Impact, Qualcomm will have to persuade consumers to play those games on a separate computer rather than on their Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered gaming phones with built-in buttons or controller accessories (or on their regular phones).
Although no official information about this device has been reported yet, more information about this will definitely be added to the internet in the next few months.
