Today, Samsung will unveil its latest flagship Galaxy smartphone: the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. There’s very little we don’t already know about the device ahead of its launch.
To promote the device, Samsung is partnering with Epic Games, the developers of the massively popular free-to-play battle royale game ‘Fortnite,’ to launch the title as an exclusive on the device for 30 days. AndroidHeadlines reports that Fortnite Mobile on Android may remain a Samsung Galaxy device exclusive for up to an additional 3 months. Ahead of the device’s launch, we obtained exclusive access to the Fortnite Mobile on Android installer APK which gave us insight into the game’s hardware and software requirements, upcoming items in the 5.2 patch, Samsung Galaxy Apps integration, and possible Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 release. But the company has not yet revealed exactly when it will be available. The leaked copy does make it clear there’s some type of exclusivity for Samsung’s latest devices, but there are no hints on how long it will last.
Fortnite for Android won’t be available on the Google Play Store once it’s released, though. Epic Games will launch the game through the company’s website, and Android users will need to sideload it to install it.
