Earlier this summer, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S7 family of tablets, featuring high-end specs across the board. One of the standout features of the tablets is the high refresh rate of the display, a rarity in Android tablets despite being fairly common on phones. Now, Samsung is working with Epic Games to add a 90FPS mode to Fortnite on the devices.
The move is interesting because OnePlus was actually the first Android smartphone manufacturer to add support for 90FPS in the battle royale game, and none of Samsung's phones are getting support for the feature. Only the Galaxy Tab S7 family is getting it, which makes them Samsung's first and only devices to support the capability, but also the first tablets in general to do so.
While Apple has had 120Hz displays on the iPad Pro since 2017, and iPhones were the first phones to support 60FPS in 2018, Epic Games never added 90FPS support to Apple's tablets. And of course, considering everything going on between the two companies, that would be impossible at this time.
The update that enables 90 frames per second in Fortnite for the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ will go live tomorrow, October 13. You'll need to have installed the game from the Galaxy Store or the Galaxy Game Launcher app for it to work, since Google banned the game from the Play Store after Fortnite tried to avoid using the company's payment API.
