Competitors in the Mobile Challenge and Mobile Masters tiers will exclusively use Galaxy devices with Snapdragon chips
Qualcomm today named Samsung as an official smartphone partner for its multi-title mobile esports league, the Snapdragon Pro series. Under the partnership, the esports league will feature the Samsung brand in multiple regions, and competitors at certain tiers will only use Galaxy devices with Snapdragon chips.
Snapdragon Pro Series competitors at the Mobile Challenge and Mobile Masters levels will exclusively use Samsung Galaxy devices in sanctioned competitions, starting with the upcoming Mobile Challenge Finals at DreamHack Valencia later this month.
Speaking about the partnership, Stephanie Choi, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Marketing at Samsung, said: “We are committed to putting high-performance Snapdragon-powered Samsung Galaxy devices in the hands of billions of gamers around the world to foster both camaraderie and competition. As an official Snapdragon Pro series smartphone partner, This announcement deepens our existing collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies and is an important step in our quest to advance mobile technology in the world of esports.”
Although Samsung hasn’t revealed which Galaxy devices will make an appearance on stage at upcoming Snapdragon Pro series events, we expect the company to offer its flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra or Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra to its competitors. Both models feature Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and high-refresh displays, making them perfect for mobile gaming. Samsung will likely upgrade to the next Galaxy S23 series after its announcement early next year, as it will come with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.
