Many companies have come out with their own gaming smartphones and it’s now believed that Nokia could end up going down this road as well. HMD Global, the company that makes Nokia smartphones now, hasn’t said anything about developing a gaming smartphone but a tweet from one of the company’s official accounts might have been hinting at this possibility.

The official Nokia Twitter account for India posted an image with the silhouette of an unannounced device with the caption “Stay tuned for a phone you can #GameOn.” Many believe that this is a not so subtle hint from the company about a gaming smartphone.

There may be more here than meets the eye. No leaks or rumors have surfaced prior to this tweet to suggest that Nokia is indeed developing a gaming smartphone. This is the first we’re hearing of this so it’s entirely possible that this may be some other device that’s not really purpose built for mobile gaming.

The device in question may not be the Nokia 9, HMD’s next flagship, as it has reportedly been delayed to 2019. Nokia 9 is expected to feature five cameras at the back in addition to the latest hardware that you would find in any Android flagship.

Whether or not Nokia is making a gaming phone is another matter entirely. There’s not much to go on right now to suggest that the company is indeed doing that.
