Tencent, which publishes games such as PUBG, has set up a collaboration with Razer in order to improve said apps' function on the gaming hardware giant's Android phones. This involves optimizing Tencent titles for the Razer Phones, as well as for the mobile-gaming peripherals Razer sells.

Tencent and Razer have announced a partnership intended to leverage their relative expertise in gaming software and hardware. It may result in an improved experience while playing titles such as PUBG on the Razer Phones 1 or 2. This collaboration should also boost these apps while using Razer controllers, which are compatible with phones from different OEMs.

The two companies have also noted that this new agreement may also affect how these apps are monetized in the future - Razer's services arm could be more closely involved in this process going forward. Apparently, the games in question will also be optimized for the Razer Core, a gaming-focused launcher for Android. THX Spatial Audio, which is also controlled by Razer, may also be implemented while playing Tencent titles.

This new partnership may seem like an extra edge for the hardware partner in question for its current and future phones. On the other hand, a previous report has indicated that this area of Razer's business is in so much trouble that there may not be a phone released under that brand this year. Then again, this does not stop the addition of this new feather to the marketing of controllers such as the Raiju.
