Fortnite for Android is expanding support for more phones, especially the mid range. Epic Games has added compatibility with the Snapdragon 710 and Snapdragon 670 processors, found on some devices from Samsung, Xiaomi, Nokia and Vivo.
The latest update for Fortnite for Android brings support for devices with Snapdragon 710, including Samsung Galaxy A8s, Xiaomi Mi 8 SE, Oppo R17 Pro and the newly released Nokia 8.1.
It is also compatible with the Snapdragon 670 chipset in phones such as Oppo R17 and Vivo Z3. In addition, Epic says its battle royale game runs on the Samsung Galaxy A9 (the one with four cameras ).
Until then, Fortnite was already compatible with about 70 different Android models, including manufacturers like Asus, Sony, Motorola, Huawei and OnePlus – check out the list here.
If your device is not present, Epic warns that it can still be compatible if you have at least 3 GB of RAM and Adreno 530/Mali-G71 MP20 graphics chip, and if you run Android 8.0 Oreo or higher.
Epic Games Earns $ 3 Billion from Fortnite Success
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic said in August that Fortnite for Android was thought for high-end phones and tablets: “Of the 2.5 billion Android devices in the world, 300 million will run it well.” It seems that the company has decided to expand the base of compatible mobile phones ever since.
It’s hard to know how many people play Fortnite on Android because it’s not available in the Play Store (Google stopped making $50 million because of that). Epic only reveals that in less than a month, the game had already been installed in 15 million Androids.
Meanwhile, on the iPhone and iPad, the users around the world spend $1.23 million on Fortnite every day. And that figure may increase because it was calculated before the opening of the seventh season.
According to TechCrunch, Epic made a profit of $3 billion in 2018. The company does not release financial data.
