Fortnite for Android compatible devices and minimum requirements on Revu Philippines

Fortnite for Android now in open beta. Here’s how you can play today

In Games, Apps, and OS by Ramon Lopez2 Comments

Android users can finally exhale, as Fortnite for Android is now in open beta. That means anyone can sign up and sink their teeth in the free-to-play battle-royale game without the terrible wait.

The catch is that Fortnite — partly because it’s still in beta at the moment, and partly because it’s a graphically demanding title — won’t run on all Android devices. In fact, Fortnite developer and publisher Epic Games has published a list of compatible Android hardware on its website.

The list isn’t that long, and it’s mostly comprised of flagships with plenty of horsepower and memory to back them up. If you own a recent Samsung phone with top-shelf specs, you’re probably good to go. But suppose your phone or tablet doesn’t support Fortnite’s Android Beta. The good news is that your device might still be able to play it provided it isn’t rooted and meets the following specs:

  • Runs Android 8.0 Oreo or later
  • Has 3GB RAM or more
  • Uses Adreno 530 or higher; Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12, or higher

If your phone or tablet fulfills the minimum criteria, it’s worth a shot. Our OPPO Find X was able to run the game without issues and dips in performance at Epic (read: max) graphics quality. You can download the game client by visiting fortnite.com/android on your Android hardware.

The next step is downloading and installing Fortnite on your system using the game client. You’ll need to create an Epic account — 1if you don’t have one — or link your console account of choice to your device.
