Fortnite leak confirms Android users' worst fears

Fortnite leak confirms Android users' worst fears

When we first hear that Fortnite for Android will be exclusive to the Note 9 for at least 30 days, if not longer, that report said that buyers would get $100 to $150 worth of V-Bucks for purchasing in-game content. After passing these, is the game allowed to run.

The Galaxy Note 8 is a monster of a phone, with a 6.3-inch display that takes up 83.2% of the front of the phone and has a dazzlingly sharp resolution of 1,440 x 2,960. While the standard revenue cut is also 70% for developers and 30% for Samsung, Galaxy Apps Partners can get a better 80/20 cut. But it's the new S Pen that really excites.

The game will go as far as checking whether the device is compatible with Samsung's S Pen, though it's unknown if that's merely a method to block out non-Samsung devices or if the title will actually make use of its features. The box also confirms a large 4,000mAh battery, something that Samsung has been teasing for the Galaxy Note 9.

This will all become official when Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9 in an "Unpacked" event to be held in New York City.

It's true that Samsung will have exclusivity over Fortnite on Android initially, according to a leaked APK obtained by XDA Developers. It's rumoured that Fortnite Mobile for Android may be exclusive to Samsung's devices for 120 days in total including the Samsung Galaxy S8, S9, and perhaps even the S7.

The new S Pen is described on the leaked packaging as "S Pen with remote control". The smartwatch will also be equipped with an NFC module for contactless payments but it will not support Samsung's "Magnetic Secure Transmission" technology. You simply won't be able to log in unless you have a supported device.
