PUBG Mobile now supports 90fps gameplay on the OnePlus 8 Pro, 8, 7T Pro, 7T, and 7 Pro as a timed exclusive
Most recent OnePlus smartphones have been praised for their high performance, often also judged as the best in class. This performance is not only great for daily usage of the phone, but it also translates very well for gaming on these smartphones. OnePlus attempted to leverage the gaming prowess of its flagship with a collaboration with Fortnite that allowed the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro to run Fortnite at 90fps. Now, OnePlus is taking another step, as it has announced that it is collaborating with PUBG Mobile to bring 90fps gameplay to the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro, and the OnePlus 7 Pro as a timed exclusive.
The Chinese version of PUBG Mobile, called “Game for Peace” already supports high fps gameplay on several Android devices. But the PUBG Mobile, aka the global version, limits gameplay to 60fps across all devices. With this partnership, gamers can now play PUBG Mobile at 90fps on the OnePlus 8 series, the OnePlus 7T series, and the OnePlus 7 Pro. The high fps gameplay remains exclusive to these OnePlus devices from August 6, 2020, to September 6, 2020. Another point to note, this experience is available to OnePlus users worldwide with the exception of those in Mainland China, Japan, and Korea.
It isn’t immediately clear whether this 90fps gameplay comes with its own limitation, as was present with the Fortnite 90fps gameplay. On Fortnite, choosing 90fps would set the display quality back to low. So while users did get a smoother experience, the details in the game’s landscape would only render as they moved closer to them. We wouldn’t be surprised if PUBG Mobile also included some limitations, even though the device hardware (especially on the latest flagships) is more than capable enough to handle high graphics.
