Yep, another Fortnite post. People just can't seem to get enough. This time around I would like to cover the upcoming beta and the devices that will support it. The first thing to note is that only Samsung users have official access to the game right now, but there is a forthcoming beta for non-Samsung users that should launch in the next few days, and you can sign up for it on the developer's website as of today. Device support is limited, but it looks like most newer high-end phones are included.
If you check out the official Fortnite beta sign-up page you will see the full list of currently supported devices for the game. There is even a link to a FAQ that goes into even more detail of what devices will work and what type of specs you'll need, which I have pasted right below for your viewing pleasure.
Android Beta initially will work on the following devices:
- Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge , S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4
- Google: Pixel / Pixel XL, Pixel 2 / Pixel 2 XL
- Asus: ROG Phone, Zenfone 4 Pro, 5Z, V
- Essential: PH-1
- Huawei: Honor 10, Honor Play, Mate 10 / Pro, Mate RS, Nova 3, P20 / Pro, V10
- LG: G5, G6, G7 ThinQ, V20, V30 / V30+
- Nokia: 8
- OnePlus: 5 / 5T, 6
- Razer: Phone
- Xiaomi: Blackshark, Mi 5 / 5S / 5S Plus, 6 / 6 Plus, Mi 8 / 8 Explorer / 8SE, Mi Mix, Mi Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S, Mi Note 2
- ZTE: Axon 7 / 7s, Axon M, Nubia / Z17 / Z17s, Nubia Z11
Currently unsupported, working on fixes in the near term:
- HTC: 10, U Ultra, U11 / U11+, U12+
- Lenovo: Moto Z / Z Droid, Moto Z2 Force
- Sony: Xperia: XZ/ XZs, XZ1, XZ2
If your phone is not on this list, it might still work assuming if you have the following specs:
- OS: 64 bit Android, 5.0 or higher
- RAM: 3GB or higher
- GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
As you can see, there's already a solid amount of Android devices that are known to be supported by the Fortnite beta, and in the next few days, access will begin rolling out in waves for some of them. So if you don't get your invite in the first wave, don't fret as I'm sure you'll get into the beta soon enough.
