Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain revealed this in a tweet yesterday, where he ran a poll to understand if users in India really want to play Fortnite on the phones. The tweet does make it clear that bringing in the game has nothing to do with hardware constraints, Jain said if users want Fortnite support, Xiaomi will speak to Qualcomm to get certified.

Jain also revealed that Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is a new chip and isn't available in the USA yet, which is also Fortnite's biggest market yet. Consequently, the processor hasn't yet been whitelisted with the support for Fortnite.
