The Chinese smartphone maker and electronics giant are rolling out a new update to Redmi Note 7 Pro users. Xiaomi is working with Epic Games and Qualcomm to bring famous battle royale game Fortnite support to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro. This new OTA (Over The Air) update brings the version number of MIUI to to the update while whitelisting the Snapdragon 675 SoC to run the popular Battle Royale game Fortnite.

The entire issue of Fortnite started when Realme teased that its latest mid-range smartphone, the Realme 3 Pro can compete with the Redmi Note 7 Pro while bringing Fornite support along with existing PUBG Mobile support. Realme even took a shot at Xiaomi by indicating that while Realme 3 Pro can support Fortnite, the Redmi Note 7 Pro cannot run the game. This prompted Managing Director for Xiaomi India, Manu Kumar Jain, Global Vice President and MD, Xiaomi India to issue a clarification in a tweet and official blog post on the MIUI forums.

As part of the clarification, Jain added that Fortnite was popular in the United States and Snapdragon 675 is a relatively new processor that has not launched in the United States. He also added that while older processors like the Snapdragon 710 have made their way to Epic Games and received certification to run the game, new ones like Snapdragon 675 are yet to be certified. As previously mentioned, Jain added that Xiaomi will work to bring Fortnite support to the Note 7 Pro.

This new update was initially reported by vigilant Redmi Note 7 Pro users on the MIUI forums. Though the changelog does not mention Fortnite support, a Telegram Channel “Violet Official Updates | Redmi Note 7 Pro” confirmed this by installing the game on the device. Shortly after the initial reports, Jain confirmed the Fortnite support with a tweet on his official Twitter account.

The screenshots provided in the Telegram channel indicate that the game can run at “Low” quality with the frame rate locked to 20FPS. The official changelog of the update states that the new update fixes “Noises in the speaker” while adding 4K video recording, likely in the front camera.
