Fortnite for Android is a real success, no one can say otherwise. It is being a worldwide phenomenon, since in a very short time it managed to reach an immense number of players, in fact, and as we already mentioned, it reached an impressive 125 million users a couple of months ago. Though the quantity of Fortnite not supported android phones huge.
The news that we could enjoy the popular game on our Android devices was very well received, as expected, although it was somewhat tarnished when we learned that Samsung would have exclusivity for some time, in its recent Galaxy Note 9. We’ll have to wait, but if you do not want to do it in vain, what do you think about knowing those smartphones where you can not play Fortnite?
Damn Fortnite game minimum requirements
The expression “minimum requirements” always causes me some discomfort, and that is that, as it has probably happened to you, I had a bad experience with them. There is nothing worse than wanting to enjoy a game and not being able to not meet the requirements. What are the minimum requirements for Fortnite?
The characteristics, which we could know thanks to XDA Developers, are the following:
- Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher.
- 3GB minimum RAM.
- Adreno 530 GPU, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher.
Popular Android mobiles that you can NOT play Fortnite
List of popular mobiles not supported by Fortnite Android Game: 1. Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) and J5 (2017) 2. BQ Aquaris U2 3. Xiaomi Mi A1 and A2
These Samsung phones lead the sales table in many countries, such as Spain or Mexico. Unfortunately, its specifications will not be enough for the owners of these devices to enjoy the game of Epic Games.
Although it is true that there is a version of the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) with 3 GB of RAM, the vast majority of models sold remain at 2 GB. Your GPU, the Mali T-720, would not serve to reach the recommended minimum.
With its older brother, the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) we have more of the same, a very extended version of 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage with which you can not run the application. Again his GPU, which goes up to the T-830 and yes that would suffice, still has very little to say.
The BQ smartphone is also one of the most popular in Spain and it does not reach the minimum that Epic Games imposes. Again the RAM again stays in some not so usual 2 GB.
Yes, it is true that there is a 3 GB version of RAM, but the GPU is not enough either since we are talking about the Adreno 505. Therefore, count on the RAM that counted, could not run the game correctly.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is tremendously popular and like its successor, the A2, it might not be enough for Fortnite. In both cases, we have the minimum amount of RAM and obviously with an updated operating system.
Despite this, we are talking about the Adreno 506 and 512 respectively, which would not reach the minimum requirements, the Adreno 530 GPU. However, everything is still to be confirmed.
Lucky smartphones support Fortnite Android Game
Of course, the entire high range will be able to move if Fortnite problems. However, which modest phones meet the minimum requirements? Here we bring you 3 examples.
Huawei P8 Lite (2017)
The renewal of one of the most popular devices in recent years will be able to with Fortnite. In its most modest version, we find 3 GB of RAM, just the minimum, and thanks to its GPU, the Mali T-830 MP2, and those users who have the Huawei phones will be able to spend hours in Battle Royale.
Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017)
The A5 that Samsung launched last year would pass the filter. We have 3 GB of RAM and an Exynos 7880 processor that seems, it would be enough. What about the GPU? We are facing the Mali T-830 MP3, so there would not be, in principle, any problem.
If you have the phone of the legendary signature you are in luck, because it is another example of a phone that, if everything goes well, you can run the popular game. You will not have less than 3 GB of RAM although there are versions that reach up to 4 GB. In addition, it has a non-negligible Snapdragon 630.
The minimum requirements are not the official ones, so there could be changes when we know the final data. With so much information, with so many rumors, it is normal that there are erroneous data, so we will wait for new releases from Epic Games.
If you have any of the devices with which it seems you will not be able to play, do not lose all hope, you may end up having a surprise.
