PCSX4 emulator for Android
PCSX4 is a beta Play Station 4 & Play Station 4 Pro emulator project based on hardware-assisted virtualization which allows you to play PS4 games on Android device (see also Windows, MacOS, Linux and iOS).
It requires your PS4 console to grab “play-station device identifier” (PDIX) and original PS4 games.
PCSX4 development was initially started with closed source in late 2014 but later shifted to the semi-open source to boost the development.
You can now play PS4 games on iOS & Android at variable frame rates with buttery smooth experience as most of the titles can now run at 60 FPS and beyond.
If you have a dedicated GPU that has Vulkan support, then you can expect a decent performance.
Root Access is not required for PS4 Emulation.
