Battlegrounds Mobile India has a fairly low minimum system requirement. It needs Android 5.1.1/iOS 9.0 or above and at least 2 GB of RAM. This is slightly higher than its competitor Free Fire and Call of Duty Mobile. All progress from PUBG Mobile can be ported back into Battlegrounds Mobile India by retrieving your old PUBG account via Facebook login.
