At the ongoing Snapdragon Tech Summit 2019 in Hawaii, Qualcomm has announced its next-gen flagship Snapdragon 865 chip. The new top-of-the-line SoC from the company not only boasts of improved performance, but also comes with support for 5G, 200MP cameras, and 144Hz displays. But that’s not all. The processor also features some key functionality that will help improve gaming performance, especially for PUBG Mobile players. During day 2 of the Snapdragon Tech Summit, Qualcomm has revealed that PUBG Mobile will get support for true 10-bit HDR and a 90fps mode.
Snapdragon 865 powered devices will be able to push 90fps in-game, allowing users to make full use of the high refresh-rate displays on their smartphones. We can expect PUBG Mobile to feel even more fluid on devices powered by the new chip when compared to Snapdragon 855 powered devices with 90Hz displays.
The visuals will be enhanced even further with support for true 10-bit HDR, which will go above and beyond PUBG Mobile’s current HDR mode. The HDR mode that can be found in the in-game settings right now doesn’t really offer a significant bump in visual quality. But with true 10-bit HDR support, we can expect to see even better dynamic range.
As of now, we can’t be sure how these two features will impact PUBG Mobile gameplay. But we’ll definitely test it out as soon as OEMs start rolling out their Snapdragon 865 powered devices.
