We have been hearing rumors for a while that Epic’s Fortnite for Android could be launched as a temporary exclusive for Samsung devices. It turns out that is partially correct because in an announcement by Samsung, it seems that Galaxy users can now get their hands on the beta version of the game ahead of everyone else.
According to Samsung, this is applicable to those who own either the Galaxy Note9, Galaxy S9/+, Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8/+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Tab S4, or the Galaxy Tab S3. The beta will be available starting today, the 9th of August, and the app can be found via the Samsung Game Launcher.
For those who plan to buy the recently announced Galaxy Note 9, you guys will be given a bonus which comes in the form of either 15,000 V-bucks or a pair of AKG noise-cancelling headphones. Alternatively you will be able to get both by topping up an extra $99. Note 9 and Tab S4 owners will also be given a unique Fortnite Galaxy skin.
For non-Samsung users who want to get in on Fortnite, you can head on over to its website to leave your email and be notified for when it launches, as well as check out the list of compatible devices.
