Ever since it launched on iOS back in March Fortnite fans have waited patiently for the blockbuster game to finally become available on Android. Last week it was reported that Fortnite Mobile could launch as a 30-day exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 that is set to be unveiled on August 9th, which if true, is majorly disappointing for those that have no intention of buying Samsung’s newest flagship. In better news, Epic Games has published an initial list of supported Android handsets that Fortnite will be compatible with, which we’ve got more info about after the break.
Discovered by XDA-Developers, the list shows that devices such as the Moto E4 Plus with just 3GB of RAM and running a lowly MediaTek MT6737 processor will be capable of running Fortnite Mobile. There are some surprising omissions such as Huawei’s P20 Pro, the LG G7, Essential Phone, any HTC device, and a bunch of Nokia smartphones. It’s important to remember that is likely an initial list that will be added to as time goes by. Speaking of the list of compatible smartphones, it has been pulled from the Epic Games website and replaced with a sign-up page.
Despite there being numerous gaps in the number of phones supporting Fortnite Mobile, it’s almost certain that Epic Games will add more devices to the list as we get closer to the launch date, whenever that it is.
