Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ will soon be able to run Fortnite at 90 FPS. The functionality will arrive via a Galaxy Store update and will be available to all players soon. We can expect Samsung and Epic to bring the feature to other compatible devices soon.

Despite high-refresh-rate screens becoming increasingly commonplace even among low-cost smartphones, many applications cannot take advantage of it. In particular, several mobile games max out at 60 FPS and require direct intervention from their developers to run at higher framerates. Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ owners will be pleased to know that they can now play Fortnite at 90 FPS.

Samsung announced the update via a blog post. To get started, all one needs to do is update the game via the Galaxy Store and enable the 90 FPS mode via the game's settings. It becomes the second Android device after the OnePlus 8 series that can run Fortnite at that framerate. The problem is, both Apple and Google have removed Fortnite from their respective platforms, making the Galaxy Tab S7 series one of the few devices that can run the game, to begin with.

Interestingly enough, both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ come with 120Hz screens. However, it is unlikely that either device will be able to deliver 120 FPS consistently. Even the iPad Pro had to sacrifice some visual fidelity and run the game at 720p to run Fortnite at that frame rate. One can only hope that Samsung and Epic implement something similar for the future Galaxy devices running more powerful hardware.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since.
