Google's Working On A Certification Program For Android Gaming Phones

In the meantime, a lot of players have still hesitated to choose a suitable gaming phone because they're really unaware of its real performance.

Google is reportedly working on a program called “Game Device Certification” in an attempt to ensure the standards and requirements for gaming smartphones in the future. As a result, Android-based game developers will easily handle the compatibility between the device and their apps. According to XDA Developers, there are a few documents, in which Google has outlined new requirements for them. However, the company hasn’t made any announcement regarding this program.

As per a part of those documents, manufacturers will soon have to meet new technical requirements detailed in the Game Device Certification before their devices get certified and ready for being a real gaming phone. In particular, Google wants to make sure that such devices won’t happen any “unexpected throttling, lost CPU core, or other odd system behavior.” Under the hood, they’re required to support not only the Vulkan Graphics API ver 1.1 but also 2.3GB of memory for apps to allocate and so on.

Google’s new move is predictable as the mobile game market has grown quickest amongst others in the video game industry, accounting for almost half of the whole worldwide revenue last year. As such, setting standards for devices processing them is kind of necessary. At present, borders between the PC, console, and mobile are blurred when it comes to running games like Fortnite or Call of Duty. In the meantime, players are in the middle of a gaming-phone pool with several flagships from Nubia, Razer, Black Shark, and ASUS.

Once the program hit the gaming phone market, you will surely have a dedicated device up to par with your expectations on your own.
