Fortnite Android Release May Feature Device Exclusivity

Galaxy Note 9 could be the first Android phone to come with Fortnite

We may have finally gotten some idea of the Fortnite Android release date.

As reported by the folks over at 9to5Google, Fortnite will launch on Android as part of a special promotion alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The three issues are likely to be taken care of with the rumoured specs of the Galaxy Note 9. The teasers embedded below suggest an aggressive successor to the Galaxy Note 8, featuring faster performance, larger battery, and bigger storage options. That means if you want to play Fortnite against your iOS, Mac, PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch friends right away, you're going to have to spring for a Note 9.

As for the cases as you can see we have a pretty standard range, with a regular silicone protection sleeve, a folding stand case, a fold-out stand, and the LED panel case to get notifications without having to turn your phone on.

After 30 days of availability, Epic is expected to make Fortnite available to everyone who has a smartphone powerful enough to run it.

They Looked Like Zebras, But Were Braying
Egyptian student Mahmoud Sarhan shared his images on Facebook , saying the zebras were obviously painted donkeys. The picture shows a suspicious-looking animal, with a lighter snout and longer ears than a typical zebra's.

That, however, looks like it will change relatively soon, although things are not quite as simple as they may first seem. These could include up to $150 worth of V-Bucks - the in-game currency - exclusive cosmetics, and more.

Of course, the last time Samsung tried to put a big battery into a Galaxy phone, it notoriously didn't go so well.

Console exclusives are nothing new to gamers, but pairing a wildly mobile game with the release of a brand new phone that's estimated to cost over $1,000 is unusual, to say the least.

The Galaxy Note 9 - and possibly some other goodies - will be unveiled at 1am on August 10th AEST in NY. If the rumors are to be believed, however, other Android users won't be able to download Fortnite on Android until a month later, meaning perhaps early-mid September.
