Fortnite Can Be Now Played On The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro
When Fortnite was first released in 2018, the game had support for only a select number of devices, which included Samsung flagships like the Note 9 and the Galaxy S9. The game is free to play, and it earlier required the user to receive an invite, without which they could not play the game. Previously, Realme CEO showed off the game running on the Realme 3 Pro, which was released on April 29, 2019. The post was a jab on the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which was barely hidden in the same image, and could not run the game previously. According to the latest Tweet shared by Company VP, the Redmi Note 7 Pro has received Fortnite support with the push of the latest update.

The Chinese company has released v10.2.10.0 update for the aforementioned smartphone, which runs on the Snapdragon 675 mobile chipset, comprising of the octa-core Kryo 460 CPU and the Adreno 612 GPU. It is one of the most powerful SoCs in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 6-series chipsets, and Redmi Note 7 Pro users took to Twitter to express their expectations regarding the popular Battle Royale game that has over 40 million active players on PC. The game’s number one competitor is PUBG Mobile, which dominates the mobile gaming scene. With Fortnite support now present on the Redmi Note 7 Pro, more users will be able to play the game on their respective devices.
As per reports, the performance of the game on the Redmi Note 7 Pro was underwhelming at most. Even after installing the latest update from the company, there was a negligible change in the performance, reports claim. Furthermore, the game runs on the lowest possible graphics settings and delivers about 20 frames per second, which is quite low for a third person shooter. It is possible that the game was not optimized for the devices running Snapdragon 675, considering the chipset is not widely used in the United States and Epic Games is a US based organization. It is expected, however, that Epic Games will push an update in the not-so-distant future which will significantly improve the performance of the game on Redmi devices.
