PUBG Mobile: How to enable 60 FPS for HD/HDR graphics on Android phones – Samsung, HTC, Google

There's no need to hold back when playing handheld anymore. Here's how to get the best quality.


The beauty of the Android operating system is that you can easily add extra functionality to existing software.

There is an amazing community of developers and modders who are always willing to add these extra functionalities, allowing apps to run on unsupported or low hardware devices. 

PUBG Mobile is one such app that has gotten extra functionality thanks to the amazing tool, GFX Tool for PUBG, created by TSOML.

On many devices. especially the low end, mid-range, or older high-end smartphones, PUBG Mobile is unable to run at extreme (60 FPS).

Anything beyond HD will drastically reduce the FPS. The developers must have intentionally placed the restriction to avoid devices from overheating and causing too much strain on the CPU/GPU.

How to Enable HD graphics

The good news is, for Android devices, there is a workaround to get a smooth 60 FPS on high graphics for devices that wouldn’t ordinarily support it.

For now, there is no consistent workaround for iOS devices.

For us to get started, go to the Google Play Store on your Android device and download “GFX Tool for PUBG”, then follow these instructions:

  • Close PUBG Mobile and ensure it is not running in the background
  • Open up GFX Tool for PUBG
  • Select version (preferably choose the Global version)
VERSION SELECT: Go for the Global version (top left)
  • Next, select your mobile resolution (If you are not sure of this, go to www.gsmarena.com and do a search for your phone model)
  • After that, click on the graphics dropdown menu and select HD or HDR
  • Next, select 60FPS from the FPS dropdown menu

Customisation options

These are the most important options to set but we can still go ahead to increase or decrease the graphics settings.

  • Set Anti-aliasing as 2x/4x (You can leave this disabled if you don’t notice any difference to save some performance)
  • Set rendering quality as High
  • Enable shadows for a more realistic look
  • Set texture quality to High
  • Set colour format as 32-bit
  • Set Detail Mode as low for better performance
  • Enable GPU Optimisation
  • In the end, click on accept and then click on Run game
  • Once the game starts, go to settings, you should see extreme Frame Rate available for HD/HDR (extreme Frame Rate represents 60FPS)
LEVEL UP: It’s time to choose HDR quality

Many smartphones are not optimised to play this game at 60FPS at high graphics, so you may observe that your device may run very hot or your battery drain is increased.

If the case is extreme, reduce the graphics settings to avoid breaking your device.
