Samsung is continuing to partner with Fortnite developer Epic Games on some exclusive in-game promotions for the hit battle royale game. Players who really want something rare can pre-order the new Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphones, and snap up an exclusive Fortnite skin.
The skin is called iKONIK, and is modeled after Jung Changwoo, one of the members of the K-pop singing group iKON. In fact, the members of iKON will make an appearance at the Samsung 837 store in New York City on March 16, along with Fortnite player and streamer Ninja, to help promote the new phone.
How to get the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus exclusive Fortnite iKONIK skin
It’s actually pretty simple — but also pretty expensive — to get this exclusive Fortnite skin. All you need to do is pre-order any of the Samsung Galaxy S10 phone before they go on sale in March. Considering that the Galaxy S10e has a starting price of $749.99, this will be a very pricey Fortnite skin indeed.
When you have the phone in your hands on or around March 8, you will have to launch the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store, and then download Fortnite on the phone. Then either create or log in to your Epic Games account and you should be able to access the iKONIK skin for your player character. It’s possible that you might have to actually play the game for a little while to unlock this skin, but this has yet to be confirmed by either Samsung or Epic Games.
This is not the first time Samsung has teamed up with Epic to help with the reveal of a new smartphone. It launched the Android version of Fortnite first on a number of Samsung smartphones and tablets in 2018, and owners of the then-new Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Tab S4 were able to snag a special “Galaxy” skin for Fortnite.
