Fortnite video for Android on a Galaxy S9 +
As exposed in XDA , the fact that some of its members managed to get hold of the Fortnite APK file for Android has given the portal the possibility of disclosing key information about the game.
We already echoed some of the news a few days ago, such as the minimum requirements that an Android smartphone must have to offer an acceptable gaming experience, as well as other details.
Well, after examining the APK file by several experts from the XDA community, they have been able to overcome the limitations that prevented their direct installation on Android smartphones. In this regard, and to understand the origin of this limitation, it should be noted that everything points to it being extracted from a prototype of the Galaxy Note 9.
Incompatibility of Fortnite with root
The result is clear in the attached video, in which you can see the smooth running of Fortnite for Android on a Samsung Galaxy S9 +. After an analysis, they have been able to verify that the videogame incorporates full compatibility with Samsung Game Tuner and with which it is possible to play at the maximum resolution allowed by Fortnite, with Epic graphics .
In addition to a Samsung Galaxy, they have tested the installation on other devices such as OnePlus 6 and Google Pixel 2 XL . The result is favorable. However, there are several points to consider. And is that some of those who have had the opportunity to install Fortnite for Android , have detected that Fortnite prevents play to users who have rooted smartphones . However, in this regard it should be noted that there are several experiences that contradict each other since there have been cases in which it has been possible to run the game despite having superuser permissions.
Nor can we ignore the information provided by the XDA article, in which they point out that this incompatibility related to SafeNet may very well be solved in the future by some of the expert developers in this area.
