Realme CEO Madhav Sheth revealed earlier this month that the company’s upcoming Realme 3 Pro smartphone will be the first in its segment to have native support for the popular game Fortnite. In the same tweet, he mentioned that the game was not supported by some latest “Pro” devices, referring to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Xiaomi has now asked its fans if they would like support for Fortnite to be added to the Redmi Note 7 Pro.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro May Soon Get Fortnite Support
In a new post on Mi India community forum, Xiaomi has asked Mi fans to share their opinion regarding support for Fortnite on the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Xiaomi says that while it understands there is a group of Mi fans in India that care about Fortnite, the game isn’t anywhere near as popular as PUBG in India. The game is much more popular in markets like the US. In fact, the main reason why the Snapdragon 675-powered Redmi Note 7 Pro does not support Fortnite is the fact that the Snapdragon 675 is a relatively new chipset and is not available in the US just yet. However, if a significant number of Mi fans in India vote for adding Fortnite game support on Redmi Note 7 Pro, Xiaomi will work with Qualcomm to get it certified.
SD 675 is a new chip & isn't available in USA (Fortnite's primary market) yet. Hence, unlike some old processors, it hasn't been whitelisted.

Realme 3 Pro Will Support Fortnite Out of the Box
Realme 3 Pro, as I mentioned earlier, will have Fortnite support right out of the box. Since the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset was released last year, it has been whitelisted already. In addition to offering native support for the game, the Realme 3 Pro should also be able to deliver a slightly smoother gaming experience compared to the Redmi Note 7 Pro. Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 uses an Adreno 616 GPU, which is more powerful compared to the Adreno 612 GPU in the Snapdragon 675.
How about playing #Fortnite on #realme3Pro? I believe #realme3Pro will be the 1st in its segment that can directly support it. Tried to play this game on some latest "Pro" devices but none of them could manage. When it comes to speed, chipset matters.

Realme’s Redmi Note 7 Pro rival will be launched in India on April 22. Thanks to a powerful Snapdragon 710 chipset under the hood, it is expected to give tough competition to the Redmi smartphone. The upcoming Realme smartphone will also have a 6.3-inch Full HD+ resolution display, dual rear cameras with Nightscape and super slo-mo video, as well as fast charging support. On the software front, it will run on the Android Pie-based ColorOS 6.0 out of the box. While the pricing remains a mystery, we expect Realme to price it very competitively to take on the Redmi Note 7 Pro, currently the most desirable budget Android smartphone on sale in India.
