You can now sign up to download Fortnite Beta for Android, here are all compatible phones
Fortnite for Android is here... kind of.

You can now sign up for the Android beta of the game over at the official website of Epic Games, the company behind the popular battle royale game.

Good news is that the game has long been in development and this official beta will allow the developers to iron out all remaining bugs and soon launch the game to a vast number of Android devices.

What about that rumored exclusivity to Samsung's Galaxy Note? Well, Epic Games only says that Samsung devices will be the first to get an invitation for the beta and that other devices will start getting an invitation in "the next few days", and that's about all we know about the exclusivity. So, no need to worry: it seems that it will not take long for Fortnite to arrive on a lot of Android phones.

First, let us give you the link you are looking for:

And yes, Fortnite for Android will not be available on the official Google Play Store, but you will instead sideload it on your phone.

Here is Epic Games official comment on why it chose to launch Fortnite in such a rather unusual way:

Next, let us tell you about all the Android phones that will support Fortnite. Epic Games says that a whopping 250 million Android devices in total will support the game. The list below comes from Epic Games' official website for the game, but at the end we see the option to sign up for the beta even if you have another device. Our guess is that you should be able to play the game on other phones too, but Epic won't guarantee that it all runs as buttery smoothly as on the officially supported phones. With this in mind, here are all the

Signed up for the beta, got an email in minutes. Downloaded the APK installer to be told my OnePlus 6 is incompatible though it's listed as a compatible device. In the app though the Samsungs are only listed as compatible.

So even though they said it would be available today, it's actually not even finished for Android, and it actual release time is probably the original date they gave from the get-go. The Unpacked was rushed an terrible. The Unpacked hasn't been good since the S6 Unpacked event. They really didn't show off features, and what they did show was pretty underwhelming. But am sure they are saving the best for S10 and the next Note. I might jump on VZW's BOGO deal, but then again; I can wait until next year. Sorry Samsung, but I think I have to pass, though I'm also on the fence. I usually buy a phone every year and this will be the first time since 2011, that I may not do an upgrade.

Android Central did a write up using a few phones. Result, capped at 30fps and somewhat laggy compared to iOS version. Also noted was that the game was chewing through battery fast. Maybe a dozen matches on a full charge using WiFi before phone is dead. This'll be good for OEM, killing batteries faster than thought possible.
