In a First For Android Fortnite for OnePlus 8 Series Devices To Support 90Hz GamePlay

Fortnite is a popular title for mobile gaming. A couple of years ago and people wouldn’t have taken “mobile gaming” seriously at all. Perhaps, one can give credit to the modern smartphone manufacturers who have made such powerful devices that these can run games such as Fortnite. The best part about Fortnite is that it is a cross-platform title and is displayed the same on every device it is available on. That means, the Fortnite on your PC is the same as the one available on your 5.8-inch iPhone. To push the title further, we see smartphones come with higher refresh rate displays. In a report from Android Police, we see that OnePlus 8 series of smartphones would be the first ones that get a full 90Hz gameplay available on them.

Smartphones Replacing the Idea of a PC?

This is a big deal for smartphones which usually cap at 60Hz for gaming. While yes, it is true that the OnePlus 8 Pro has a 120Hz display, we believe they are limiting it to 90Hz for that device for now. For first-person shooters such as Fortnite, higher refresh rate displays truly make the difference here. Of course, it still won’t be a similar experience to the one on PCs but it is up there, for sure. Sadly for OnePlus 7 and 7T series of devices: they will not be supported for this update. Although they did support 90Hz displays, Epic Games has for some reason excluded the.

One should also know that the current generation of consoles play the title capped at 60Hz too and for everyday PCs, a 90Hz gameplay for the game isn’t less than extraordinary (with regular specs). So this is a big feat, no doubt. It shows us the great potential these tiny devices possess. One may even think that once developers make apps, especially for mobile devices, these may just replace our home-based computers over time. Just like the iPad is trying to do today.
