Samsung could be hopping on the gaming smartphone bandwagon too if popular leakster @MMDDJ_ is to be believed. If so, the South Korean giant will be joining the likes of the Asus ROG Phone, Razer Phone, and Xiaomi Black Shark. @MMDDJ_'s tweet doesn't provide much information other than just mentioning that Samsung is preparing a gaming smartphone. 

While the specs are anyone's guess at this point, it is very likely to sport some custom-clocked version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or, knowing Samsung, a custom version of the Exynos 9810. A high refresh rate display could also be on the cards along with support for the latest fast charging technology. In a subsequent tweet, @MMDDJ_ said that the Samsung's upcoming foldable smartphone will not be called the Galaxy X, which means that could be name reserved for this gaming phone. The Wall Street Journal reported some time back that the foldable Galaxy smartphone is coming in early 2019 and the company is first targeting gamers followed by a broader roll out. Whether this foldable smartphone is indeed the gaming phone or is Samsung creating a separate gamer-focused portfolio is not yet known.

The market is slowly warming up to gaming smartphones and OEMs are looking to incorporate some or the other GPU-specific feature in their phones. Huawei's recently announced GPU Turbo and Qualcomm's rumored Adreno Turbo are some of the ways OEMs are trying to cater to the increasing mobile gamer community.
