Pubg Mobile Lite Launched For Low-end Android Devices

PUBG Mobile Lite Launched For Low-End  Android Devices

Games like PUBG and Fortnite can be demanding in terms of hardware requirements due to the battle royale nature of the game which would require the device it’s played on to render a lot of graphics at the same time. This is why Fortnite for Android’s specs have essentially precluded it from lower-end Android phones.

Now just because you can’t afford a high-end smartphone, does that mean you should be punished for it by now being able to use certain apps or play certain games? That’s what publisher Tencent doesn’t want, and have since launched PUBG Mobile Lite. As the name would suggest, this is a “lighter” version of the game that has been designed for lower-end Android smartphones.

Sony Mobile Highlights Its Innovation In Mobile Through Infographic

Sony Mobile highlights its innovation in mobile through infographic

Sony Mobile has published a new infographic highlighting the pedigree the Xperia brand has had in innovating in mobile. Sony highlights the number of world-firsts that were seen on an Xperia smartphone before anywhere else. For example, the Xperia Z saw the highest level of water resistance seen on a mobile at the time in 2013. Since then, we've seen the first 4K display with the Xperia Z5 Premium, while the Xperia XZ2 brought the first 4K HDR video recording in a smartphone. We really hope Sony continues to innovate in the mobile space as we move forward. What features would you like to see? Let us know in the comments below.

Sony Mobile Reportedly Exiting Multiple Markets

Sony Mobile Reportedly Exiting Multiple Markets


Sony has been soldiering on in the mobile market even though it doesn’t quite command the market share that it once used to. The company continues to make good smartphones but they have a hard time competing against rivals from other manufacturers. Sony Mobile is now believed to be thinking about exiting a few markets to essentially cut its losses.

Twitter leakster @evleaks who has a solid track record with these things claims that Sony Mobile is planning to “shut down its operations and offices” in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa later this year. The company will apparently make this decision in October.

Sony admits that it hasn't moved fast enough in mobile

Sony unveiled its mid-term corporate strategy earlier on today, delivering its plans for the next three years across all areas of its business.

New Final Fantasy Xi Mobile Screenshots Published Online

New Final Fantasy XI Mobile Screenshots Published Online

For the past several years, we've seen Square Enix bring various versions of their Final Fantasy games onto mobile. Now a few years ago, the company announced that they would be bringing Final Fantasy XI onto mobile, and that was a few years ago when the game was originally intended for a release in 2016.

This means that it's about a couple of years late, and for those who are worried about the fate of the game, fret not as Nexon (who is in charge of the port) has recently published several screenshots of the game, and along with a job listing seems to suggest that the game is indeed alive and well, and is only a matter of time before it is released to the public.

T-mobile Halts Lg V30 Android 8.0 Oreo Update

T-Mobile Halts LG V30 Android 8.0 Oreo Update

Last week T-Mobile announced that they would be rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the LG V30. However it seems that according to various reports, the update for the handset has been halted. What's interesting is that this is actually not the first time that the update for the LG V30 has been halted.

The previous time the Oreo update for the LG V30 was halted was back in April, so we're not sure what's going on. T-Mobile has since confirmed that the latest release has been put on pause and claimed that this was due to various users having a less than ideal experience of the update rolling out to them.

Nintendo's First Mobile Game Has Officially Shut Down

Nintendo's First Mobile Game Has Officially Shut Down

When Nintendo first announced plans to launch mobile games, many were understandably excited, although that excitement turned to confusion when Nintendo chose to launch Miitomo as their debut title. There was some interest at the start, but that eventually faded resulting in Nintendo announcing earlier this year that the game would be shutting down.

For those who are still playing or have played Miitomo, it seems that the game has officially shut down. In a message posted by Nintendo, "We want to thank you for enjoying Miitomo so much. Miitomo's service has come to an end as of Wednesday 9th May 2018, 16:00 (JST). We've come a long way since the app was launched, and once again we want to thank everyone who's been involved."
