Many "Fortnite Battle Royale" players are eagerly waiting for their favorite game to be released on Android mobile devices. Epic Games announced that the popular video game would be released on Android this summer, but the exact release date hadn't been revealed. However, it turns out that the game developer has big plans for the Android release of "Fortnite Battle Royale," and the game will be released this month, according to XDA.

The source revealed that Epic Games partnered up with Samsung, the largest electronics manufacturer in the world. Samsung is going to release its newest phone, the Galaxy Note 9, and that is when the Android edition of "Fortnite Battle Royale" will be released.

Additionally, it appears that the video game will only be available to Galaxy Note 9 owners within the first month of release, and phone owners will get extra currency to spend in-game.

Release date and V-Bucks gift

The Galaxy Note 9 will launch on August 9 at 11AM EST in Brooklyn, New York. The new Samsung smartphone will be one of the most powerful mobile devices, and it will be the only Android device capable of running "Fortnite Battle Royale." Considering that the 512 GB variant of the phone is expected to cost around $1,500, "Fortnite" players will have to spend a lot of money if they want to test the Android release in August.

Fortunately, other Android devices will support "Fortnite Battle Royale" one month after the Galaxy Note 9 release.

In September, most Android phones and tablets will be able to run the game, but Galaxy Note 9 users will get a special gift from Epic Games. 9to5Google revealed that these users will get $100 to $150 worth of V-Bucks to spend in-game.

According to XDA, the Android version of "Fortnite Battle Royale" will work with Samsung DeX.

Other supported devices

XDA has released a list of Android devices capable of running the mobile version of the popular video game. As expected, the game will support multiple devices from different manufacturers, including Samsung, Google, Huawei, LG, Sony, and more.

The list includes Samsung Galaxy On7, which was released in late 2015.

This means that some older devices will be able to run the game, and even though the first list includes around 40 different phone models, Epic Games will make "Fortnite" compatible with even more devices in the future. A list of supported devices is included below.
