Fortnite Mobile for Android is speculated to be a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 special for the first 30 days, followed by showing up on particular Samsung Galaxy gadgets. Likewise, the Fortnite Mobile for Android minimum requirements is apparently on the higher side. It would appear that many mid-range and budget plan Android gadgets might not have the ability to play Epic Games’ battle royale feeling. Now, more evidence shows you’ll need a reasonably high-end Android device to play Fortnite Mobile. Based on a thorough report from XDA, which has access to a Fortnite Android dripped APK, a majority of SoCs may not have the ability to play the video game at all. The list is limited to Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and above, Samsung Exynos 8890 and above, and Kirin HiSilicon 970 and above. If you’re planning to play Fortnite Mobile on Android you may require a OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy S7, Honor Play or a higher-specced Android mobile phone. On iOS nevertheless, Fortnite works on the iPhone SE and above.
According to the report, Fortnite Android will not support any MediaTek or Nvidia Tegra SoCs at launch. Furthermore, a lot of Qualcomm, HiSilicon, and Samsung chips such as the Snapdragon 660, Kirin 659, and Exynos 7885 cannot run the game either. What this indicates is, mid-range smartphones such as the Xiaomi Mi A2, Honor 9N, and Samsung Galaxy A8 may not have the ability to run Fortnite.
With that in mind, it is rather possible that Epic Games might optimise the video game even more for higher compatibility across the broad spectrum of Android gadgets, seeing how the Nintendo Switch can run the video game (albeit poorly), we will not be shocked to see the Fortnite Mobile for Android compatibility list increase gradually.
Previously, XDA recommended that this could be the minimum requirements for Fortnite.
Fortnite Android minimum requirements
Here are the minimum requirements needed to run Fortnite Mobile on Android.
- OS: 64-bit Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher
- RAM: 3GB or higher
- GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
If this is right, it would indicate that like other Unreal Engine video games, it’s more GPU than CPU limited. Most devices with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Samsung Exynos 8895 or higher should be able to play Fortnite Mobile.
That stated, Epic Games had actually talked about different Fortnite Android compatibility lists doing the rounds with this declaration to Gadgets 360:
“We haven’t revealed anything in regards to support for specific Android gadgets. This list does not come from Epic Games and need to be neglected. The only genuine information you’ll discover will come from official sources– fortnite.com and other owned Epic channels,” said a representative for Epic Games to Gadgets 360 via e-mail.
With the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch slated for August 9 and a release date of August 23, we may not need to wait too long to discover.
