Smartphones are the gateway to the internet in many developing nations.
They are also the people’s first computer and gaming device. Therefore, with the introduction of more affordable smartphones, the smartphone gaming industry has been growing at a higher rate than ever before.
With the growth of this industry, chipmakers added support for updateable GPU drivers just like on PC. Therefore, with a proper app, OEMs can deliver GPU driver updates without relying on system updates. This also allows them to fix issues quickly.
