PUBG Mobile Graphics Settings

Note that the game features three graphics presets, namely Low, Medium, and High. The more powerful your device is, the higher will be its chances of being able to run the game at the medium or high setting. On an iPhone X, for example, the game automatically selects the best graphics preset the first time it is launched.

From within the Graphics section of the game’s settings, you can also switch switch between Low, Medium, High Frame Rate to manage battery and CPU consumption, switch resolution between Smooth, Balanced, HD, and Ultra HD to fully leverage the power of your device’s display, and apply one of three Styles (Classic, Colorful, and Realistic), essentially filters, to in-game visuals.
