fortnite android phone and device compatibility list

Want to find out if your device is compatible with Fortnite Mobile on Android? You’ve come to the right place! Here you’ll find a list of all the Android phones that are compatible with Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale. We’ll update the list when more are added, so if your phone isn’t on the list be sure to bookmark this page and check back at a later date.

If you’re worried about Fortnite Mobile being removed from your phone due to conflicts with the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, you should know it’s still possible to install Fortnite Mobile on Android. It’s also possible to install it on iOS if you’ve previously installed it on an iOS device. Unfortunately, it seems like new players are out of luck on iOS right now due to the Apple/Epic legal battle.

Fortnite compatible Android phones and devices

It’s worth noting that this is only the list of phones that are officially listed as Fortnite Mobile compatible, but in reality, the list spans far beyond this. Many of the latest and greatest smartphones aren’t present though, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 series and Note 20 family, the Xiaomi Mi 11 range, and the OnePlus 9 trio.

Fortnite Mobile can run on a plethora of Android devices, although it will certainly run hot and drain your battery. If you’re not sure your phone cuts it, make sure it meets the minimum requirements listed below.

Fortnite Android minimum specs

Fortnite minimum specs

Far from requiring a flagship chipset and a ton of RAM, Fortnite Mobile on Android has some relatively modest requirements. Here are the minimum specs your phone/tablet will need to play Fortnite on Android:

  • OS: Android 8.0 Oreo or higher (64-bit)
  • RAM: 4GB or higher
  • GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
  • 3GB of free onboard storage

You can learn how to download and install the Android version of Fortnite with this guide. Keep in mind that the game was removed from the Google Play Store, so you won’t find it there.

Which phones are compatible with Fortnite at 90fps?

OnePlus 8 fortnite 90fps

Only the OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series can run Fortnite Mobile at 90fps. The OnePlus support was part of a special promotion when the phones launched, and the feature still hasn’t been pushed out to any other phones on the market.

Which phones run Fortnite at 60fps?

There are plenty of devices capable of running Fortnite at a smooth 60fps. You can check out the list below, courtesy of Epic’s own website.

  • Asus ROG Phone 2
  • Huawei Mate 20X
  • Huawei P30 and P30 Pro
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy A90 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (Snapdragon)
  • Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10e
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
  • Sony Xperia 1
  • Sony Xperia 5
  • Xiaomi Mi 9

Of course, many of the phones on the list have since been succeeded by new devices, so we expect these new phones and other unlisted devices to run Fortnite at 60fps too.

Why is my Android phone not compatible with Fortnite?

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, we’ve found that Fortnite will run on even budget devices as long as they came out in the past few years. If Fortnite doesn’t work on your smartphone, it might be time to consider an upgrade!
