When Fortnite was originally, finally released for Android it was in beta mode online and allied to Samsung. The Korean giant partnered with Epic Games to offer Fortnite on the Galaxy Note 9 for 30-days exclusively.

However, the exclusivity period is up and the app has been taken out of beta. It is now available for a much larger selection of Android devices.

You still have to head to the Epic Games website to download it as it's not available on Google Play. And ensure that your phone allows for app installations in the settings.

It's free to download and play although there are many in-app purchases to be aware of if you are a parent downloading it for your child.

In terms of compatible devices, Epic Games has released the list below. However, it could work on other, non-listed handsets that have the following minimum spec or above: Android 8.0 (must be 64-bit), 3GB of RAM, and a processor that is Adreno 530, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12.
