Thanks to the 7.10 patch, the list of Android phones officially supported by Fortnite now also includes the Nokia 8.1, Oppo R17/R17 Pro, Samsung A8s/A9, Vivo Z3, and the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. The update also comes with the "14 Days of Fortnite" holiday special event, but the Driftboard has been delayed.

Epic Games is now rolling out Fortnite 7.10 across all platforms, but mobile phone users on Android have most reasons to celebrate because the new patch comes with full support for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 670 chipsets. Obviously, there is much more to the new update than just that, since everyone gets access to a limited-time event that has begun yesterday and is called "14 Days of Fortnite" so there is no point in talking about its ending date.

Thanks to the official support for the aforementioned mobile chipsets, the following handsets are now able to handle Fortnite without any risky third-party gimmicks: Nokia 8.1, Oppo R17/R17 Pro, Vivo Z3, Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, and Samsung A8s/A9.

The special time-limited event comes each day with new quests and new rewards, as well as rotating large team and small team modes. Since the game is all about the holiday spirit these days, it should not be a surprise that themed enemies are coming to the Save the World mode.

In addition to the above, second-generation iPad Pro tablets finally received 60 fps support, while many minor tweaks and fixes arrived for all the versions of the game. Fortnite is currently available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, Windows and macOS, as well as iOS and Android.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
