For Android smartphones and tablets, a suitable display and an RTX 3080 subscription, up to 120 FPS in cloud gaming should soon be possible via GeForce Now (test). Until now, 60 FPS was the limit on mobile devices apart from Nvidia Shield, despite the reserved premium rate, only on PC was there more.
120 frames per second for all Android mobile devices
That’s what editors found when they tested Fortnite Mobile on GeForce Now in May. Although the editors have an RTX 3080 subscription, only 60 FPS was the maximum refresh rate to choose on the smartphone. Nvidia wants to change that in the coming weeks, if only for Android mobile devices.
Unlike before, not only Android mobile devices selected by Nvidia must have access to 120 FPS while streaming games, but also all other Android mobile devices that have a 120 Hertz screen. This requires a subscription to GeForce Now RTX 3080 and the GeForce Now app. The subscription also allows a maximum screen resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels for Android mobile devices.

iOS users will have to do without the 120 FPS
Although Apple’s iPad Pro product line and, as of fall 2021, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max have had a 120-Hertz display for several years, they will be excluded from the next update. That could be because Android mobile devices can download GeForce Now as an app. On iOS, GeForce Now is available as an in-browser Progressive Web App.
