Fortnite for Android could be temporarily exclusive to the Galaxy Note9

Android users have been waiting for a while for the chance to play Fortnite on their smartphone. Epic Games announced the game would come to mobile devices back in March, and it wasn't long before it was launched on iOS, but Android users have been left out so far.

In May, the developer of the battle royale game reassured users that the game would be coming to Google's operating system this summer, but a new bit of information indicates that it might actually be coming alongside Samsung's next flagship - likely to be called the Galaxy Note9. Not only that, the game will be exclusively available on the Note9 for a month after launch.

Samsung is expected to unveil the smartphone on August 9, but it could take a couple of weeks to be generally available, so those who don't buy it might be waiting until mid-September to get access to the Android version of Fortnite.

The rumors go on, though, stating that Samsung could be doubling down on its partnership with Epic by offering V-bucks, the in-game currency in Fortnite, worth between $100 and $150 to those who pre-order the flagship. Of course, not everyone might want that, so there's also the option to receive wireless AKG headphones instead.

Given the tremendous popularity of Fortnite, it wouldn't be entirely surprising to see Samsung trying to capitalize on it with one of its most important smartphones of the year. Nonetheless, this information hasn't officially been confirmed yet, so take it with a grain of salt.
