  • 3GB of free onboard storage
  • At least 4GB of system RAM
  • GPU requirements: Qualcomm Adreno 530 or higher, ARM Mali-G71 MP20, ARM Mali-G72 MP12 or higher

You can learn how to download and install the Android version of Fortnite with this guide. Keep in mind that Epic Games has elected not to release this game via the Google Play Store, so you won’t find it there.

Fortnite Android: Why is my phone not compatible?

If your phone is not on the compatibility list, Epic Games notes that the game may still work if your device fits the minimum specs listed above. For what it’s worth, the Fortnite website also lists “other” as an option for Android, suggesting they expect more devices to be compatible than what’s on the initial list.
