Bad News For Folks Anticipating For Fortnite Mobile on Android
While the big talk these past few days has been aboutÂ Epic Games’ decision to not list Fortnite on the Google Play Store, we feel the more important news is whether and when will your Android device be able to run the game as well as the (potentially) gross misconduct and mistreatment of the mobile gaming scene by Epic Games and Samsung.
Word has it that the gameâ€™s launch was delayed because Samsung and Epic Games plans to launch the battle royale game at theÂ Samsung Galaxy Note 9 unveilingÂ on August 9th. How true is this? We sincerely hope it’s just a rumour but since the folks at XDA are reporting on it, we tend to take this news seriously.
In hindsight, we doubt Google would have allowed this Samsung-exclusive treatment if the game is downloadable via Google Play so say all you want, Epic Games. We know what you’re onto.
To add salt to injury, all rumours point towards Fortnite Mobile on Android launching as a Samsung Galaxy Note 9Â exclusiveÂ for at least thirty days, and worse, a Samsung Galaxy exclusive forÂ up to an additional three months.
This exclusive deal will see Samsung Galaxy owners getÂ a huge leg-up over everyone else and as for Samsung, a monopoly of the Fortnite Mobile scene over every other Android hardware makers.
And as planned, once this period is over, Epic Games will allow supported devices toÂ download and install the game from their website.Â
OK, enough talk about that. Before we go to the nitty-gritty of things, here is the initial list of supported Android mobile phones for Fortnite Mobile on Android released not long ago.
The list above is based on data from Epic Games’ own website but the good folks at XDA went a step further andÂ have found the minimum requirements that an Android device must meet to play Fortnite Mobile on Android. So if your phone is not on that list, you can cross-check your device’s spec sheet against the minimum requirements required to run Fortnite Mobile on Android here:
Seems that the game prioritizes GPU power over the CPU. Based on these GPU requirements, most older, unlisted devices like theÂ Google Pixel,Â OnePlus 3,Â OnePlus 3T, and equivalent devices should be able to run Fortnite Mobile as well.
Considering the likes of Google Pixel and OnePlus 3 are over two years old, any high to mid-ranged phones released in 2017 should be adequate to run Fortnite Mobile on Android.
