True to its word, Xiaomi has now released v10.2.10.0 update for the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which among other things, promises support for Fortnite.
We decided to install the update and see how the game performs. The first thing we noticed was that you did not require the update to install and run Fortnite, both of which went through just fine.
The other thing we noticed that performance was remarkably poor before we installed the OS update. However, even after we installed the update, there was no change in performance. The game can still only be run at the lowest graphics preset and the frame rate often hovers well below 20fps.
This puts some doubts into the optimization that was done for this game. Perhaps, Fortnite itself will require an update before the game runs smoothly on the phone. But as of now, Redmi Note 7 Pro only has the bare minimum in terms of Fortnite support and cannot run the game comfortably, even at the lowest setting.
We will update the article, however, if things change in future.
