Fortnite Mobile for Android lacks support for HTC and Xiaomi handsets, as well as most Nokia smartphones
Fortnite and PUBG have been trading blows for a while, but PUBG has a major advantage when it comes to Android. However, Fortnite is supposed to become available for Google's mobile operating system soon as well, but there appears to be a problem: at this stage, the list of supported handsets doesn't look good at all.
Without looking at the list of supported devices, the hardware requirements for Fortnite Mobile on Android handsets are far from demanding. For example, the Moto E4 Plus — a handset powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor that sports 3 GB of memory — is listed as a compatible device. Most Samsung and LG flagships are also supported, but wait until you see the list of devices that are not supported — at least not yet.
Now, returning to the blacklist mentioned above, here are a few popular devices not compatible with Fortnite Mobile for Android yet: the Huawei P20 series, the LG G7, the Essential Phone, all HTC handsets, most Nokia smartphones, all Xiaomi handsets, and even the most recent Sony Xperia flagship.
What can you do if you own one of the ill-fated devices mentioned above and you want to play Fortnite Mobile for Android? For now, all you can do is hope and wait. Anyway, Fortnite Mobile is supposed to debut as a Galaxy Note 9 30-day exclusive title so the wait will be long enough for the hardcore fans to at least grab one of the more affordable compatible handsets. Obviously, the Note 9 exclusivity could also be an extra reason for those who are thinking about buying Samsung's upcoming flagship.
As usual, feel free to let us know what you think about this topic in the comments. This discussion could get quite interesting, so don't be shy. Before we even start the discussion, stay away from the scams you can bump into at every corner and be sure that there is no Fortnite for Android available yet.
