Apart from the Galaxy Note 9, which will offer exclusive exclusive access to Fortnite on Android, Epic Games has also released an official list of compatible smartphones, but given the variety of Android phones available, this list has not been accepted in his outfit. story of many fans, and many of you have spoken on the subject of your phone. Fortunately, we now know the minimum requirements for Fortnite on Android so you can check if your device is making the cut.

Will Epic Games have to go back to its previous list?
Data uncovered by XDA developers has revealed potentially disturbing news. If you read the list of previously released compatible phones and feel confident with Fortnite, think again. Depending on GPU requirements, most devices with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8895 or higher should be able to run Fortnite. So your Samsung Galaxy S7, Google Pixel, OnePlus 3T and equivalent devices are perfect.
However, the list of supported devices on the Epic Games website listed devices with GPUs like the Adreno 505 and Mali-T720, which fall far short of the demands of this data mine. It looks like Epic Games may have underestimated the GPU power needed to run Fortnite on Android when it premiered months ago. This could put them in the embarrassing position of having to revert to certain compatible phones. Hopefully we’ll see an official statement on this in the next few days.
