It’s been reported that Tencent may be releasing their own gaming phone soon with the help of a major phone manufacturer. The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and it would most likely be released as Tencent-branded or dual-branded with a yet to be named manufacturer. Asus, Razer, Xiaomi (Black Shark) and Wentai are the possible candidates for the collaboration. Wentai is an ODM (original design manufacturer) in China and if they work with Tencent, the gaming phone will be released as Tencent-branded.
As a company that releases mobile games in China, having its own gaming phone is beneficial to Tencent. It is speculated that the phone might not be released outside of China. Keep a look out for the latest Tencent gaming phone news.
