BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) publisher Krafton has picked iQOO as the title sponsor of the BGMI 2022 Esports Tournaments. Krafton is gearing up to host four tournaments later this year, much to the delight of avid gamers in India. Moreover, the competition will offer players an unmissable opportunity to win prizes worth INR 6 crores (about $78,9000). The competition will feature a myriad of other equally great prizes. Furthermore, the competition will give players a chance to make names for themselves internationally.
Earlier this year, the iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro smartphones were spotted in the BGMI India Series 2021 semi-finals, even before their official unveiling. Now, iQOO is teaming up with Krafton once again in a bid to bolster its vision to make a notable contribution to the mobile gaming segment. The partnership will also enable the Chinese smartphone brand to contribute to India’s esports community. Aside from this, it will offer a platform where gaming enthusiasts can show off their unparalleled skills.

iQOO CEO Nipun Marya announced the partnership recently (via LiveMint). Marya went on to state that the company spares no effort when it comes to delivering superior experiences to its young and tech-savvy consumer base. Furthermore, he acknowledges that iQOO is still riding high on the success of the BGMI series 2021 before announcing its return in the BGMI 2022 tournaments as the title sponsor. Notably, iQOO has been on a launch spree in India this year. For instance, the brand’s Z6 Pro 5G smartphone went on its first sale in the country earlier this week. By collaborating with Krafton again this year, the brand will be delivering a memorable experience for all gamers.
