At the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 event, Epic Games took the stage to announce that Fortnite is now available on Android. Seriously, you can download Fortnite for Android right now.
There is something to be noted here, though – Fortnite is only on Samsung phones at the moment. And to get it, it sure looks like you’ll need to go into the Galaxy Apps store. In fact, it’s live there right now.
Supported Samsung devices include the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy Tab S3, and Galaxy Tab S4.

When can non-Samsung phones get Fortnite? That’s not exactly clear. Epic games is saying that you can sign-up for the Android beta, and that they are inviting players in waves to play it. If you sign-up, you should get an email once you are invited. You can sign-up here.
