The Fortnite community has been given its first look at mobile gameplay of the game on the Android operating system.
Although the launch date of Fortnite Mobile on Android has not yet been formally announced, players can now see how the game will look on an Android device, thanks to tech news outlet ‘XDA Developers.‘
Data miners at XDA Developers were able to gain access to Fortnite Android and bypass the game’s authentication requirements, allowing them to post a video of live gameplay on a Samsung Galaxy S9+ device.
The video below shows gameplay using the best possible in-game settings, called ‘Epic Settings,’ and has even been more fine-tuned thanks to the Samsung Game Tuner.
Samsung is expecting to launch their newest device, the Galaxy Note 9, on August 9 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET.
They have partnered up with Epic Games ahead of the launch, which has sparked rumors that the Android version of Fortnite Mobile will available exclusively on the Note 9 for the first 30 days, and possibly even the first three months.
Those who do pre-order the Note 9 will receive 15,000 V-Bucks, and possibly even the recently leaked ‘Galaxy’ skin, which many believe will also be exclusive to Note 9 users.
Once Fortnite Mobile does launch on Android, it will not be available through the Google Play store, as Epic have announced that the game will be distributing to users via its own installer.
