Qualcomm and Chinese giant Tencent have announced they will cooperate on a range of projects, including a 5G gaming device.

The two companies announced plans to add 5G to the ASUS ROG Phone II, which uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, and which Tencent sells in China. Faster mobile connectivity could support Tencent's ambitions to launch a streaming game service, Instant Play.

Qualcomm provides the chips which power many mobile phones, particularly those using Android. It has also agreed to work with the Chinese company to optimize the way that Tencent games like King of Glory, Crossfire and (PUBG alternative) Game for Peace run on its Snapdragon Elite gaming chips.

"Mobile gaming, an important 5G use case, will soon take advantage of the next generation of connectivity," said Frank Meng, the company's head of China, as quoted by Reuters. "Faster speeds, more bandwidth and cutting edge ultra-low latency will support real-time, multi-player and immersive gaming experience."
