Redmi Note 7 Pro Finally Gets Fortnight Support Via A New Update

You can now update your Redmi Note 7 Pro to play Fortnite with the Snapdragon 675 SoC.

Just a few weeks after Xiaomi revealing that it is currently working with Qualcomm and Fornite maker Epic Games to bring support for Fortnite to its recently-released Redmi Note 7 Pro. And now it seems like Xiaomi finally manages to get what many Redmi Note 7 Pro users need. According to a fresh report, the company is set to roll out an update to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. This OTA update, MIUI, will whitelist the Snapdragon 675 processor to run Fortnite.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro Fortnite Support

The controversy started when its Chinese rival Realme revealed that its upcoming handset Realme 3 Pro could run Fortnite and PUBG Mobile. Realme even posted a photo with the Realme 3 Pro running Fortnite while the Redmi Note 7 Pro failing to do so. That led to Xiaomi India’s Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain clarifying on his Twitter page.

In this Tweet, Jain said that a part of the reason was that Fortnite was only popular in the US and the Snapdragon 675 SoC has only appeared on the market for a short amount of time, and it hasn’t come to the US yet. He further added that older chipsets like Snapdragon 710 have already been certified to run Fortnite while new offerings like the Snapdragon 675 are still in waiting.

This fresh update was firstly spotted by Redmi Note 7 Pro users on Xiaomi MIUI forum. Even though the update changelog doesn’t specifically mention the new support for Fortnite, Xiaomi India’s Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain confirmed that by tweeting a new photo with him holding a Redmi Note 7 Pro running Fortnite.

A Channel on Telegram called “Violet Official Update | Redmi Note 7 Pro” also confirmed the support by installing Fortnite on the phone. However, it seems like the Redmi Note 7 Pro can only run the popular Battle Royale game at “Low” graphics setting with frame rate locked to 20 fps.
