Fortnite Mobile on Android: Here are the compatible phones

Aside from an exact release date, compatibility is another key area that has remained elusive for Fortnite Mobile on Android. Fortunately, the Epic Games website has listed compatible devices (via XDA-Developers), accessible by clicking “get started”, and logging in with your Epic account.

Far from requiring a flagship chipset and a ton of RAM, Fortnite Mobile on Android has some relatively modest requirements. For instance, the Moto E4 Plus has only a quad-core, Mediatek MT6737 chipset and 3GB of RAM, yet it’s listed as a compatible device.

The game supports flagship phones from LG, Samsung and the like, but there are some interesting omissions. Huawei’s P20 series, the Essential Phone, the LG G7, the 2018 Moto devices, HTC‘s devices, most of the Nokia phones, the OnePlus series, Xiaomi‘s entire lineup, and Sony’s recent flagships are all missing in action.

 

Then again, the game isn’t out yet and, if the Moto E4 Plus is compatible, then the chances are good that these missing phones will work just fine. For what it’s worth, the Fortnite website also lists “other” as an option for Android, suggesting they expect more devices to be compatible than what’s on the initial list.

Fortnite Mobile on Android Release Date

All of the aforementioned Android smartphones will support Fortnite Mobile on Android if Epic Games’ website is to be believed. According to our own source, the game will launch on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on August 9th with the phone releasing on August 24th. According to 9to5Google, it will become available about 30 days afterward on September 23rd. If you pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 you will receive $100-$150 worth of V-Bucks for free. V-Bucks can be used to purchase in-game skins, dances, the battle pass, gliders, and pickaxes. These are all cosmetic and provide no in-game advantage.

Fortnite Mobile on Android is coming soon. With a player base of over 125 million players, the battle royale game that’s sweeping the landscape will get a huge boost from Android support. Even though the list of supported Android devices currently only includes 40 phones, it is very likely that more phones will be supported before and after the launch date, so don’t worry if your device isn’t on the list yet.
