Is your smartphone not listed?

If your Android phone is not on the list above, there are two cases:

  • the smartphone is too old or not powerful enough, so you can not play Fortnite on your Android phone
  • your device is “too recent”, so not yet on the list

In any case, I suggest you read the minimum hardware requirements to play Fortnite on Android.

If your phone satisfies them, try downloading and installing the game. In the worst case, you will see a message informing you that your device is not compatible with Fortnite.

Minimum requirements for using Fortnite on Android

As anticipated, from today the only condition to be respected to use Fortnite on Android is to use a compatible Android smartphone.

Here are the minimum requirements that your smartphone hardware must meet to run Fortnite:

  • version 8.0 or later of Google’s mobile operating system
  • at least 3GB of RAM
  • a video card 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher.

That said, if you have a smartphone compatible with the game, here’s how to download it and install it for free.
