Fortnite For Android Will Launch Exclusively On The Galaxy Note 9
Fortnite is one of the most downloaded games across all major platforms, making it an extremely popular multiplayer game. This interesting game allows up to 100 people to play in the game simultaneously, and hence is called a Battle Royal game. Fortnite thanks to its popularity has servers in almost all continents. While the game was initially available to play on desktop computers it was later launched for gaming consoles and iOS devices (iPhones/iPads). However, owners of Android smartphones and loyalists of Fortnite were left hanging as the company is yet to release the game on the uber popular smartphone OS. According to reports, to bank in on the popularity of the game , Samsung may tie up with Epic Games ( makers of Fortnite) to make the launch of the game a Galaxy Note 9 Exclusive. The phone is expected to launch in the second week of August 2018. It is expected that if this news comes true, the game will remain exclusive to the Note 9 and several other Samsung devices for one moth after launch.
Epic Games, the company behind Fortnite, crossed US $2 billion through in-game purchases, especially the popular game currency V-Bucks . Now that the game might actually launch for Android devices, this news about it being a Galaxy Note 9 exclusive could come as a disappointment to other Android smartphone users. Samsung has already teased the S-Pen, an integral part of the Note series of devices. So there is a high likelihood that Fortnite could have an integrated support for the S-Pen. Moreover, Samsung might have plans to provide in-game freebies for those who pre-order the Galaxy Note 9. These freebies may include, V-bucks, character skins, emotes, and more. Again, these freebies is could lead to further disappointment for other Android users who have been waiting for the game for a long time.
For the first time Samsung will deviate from the “business” persona of the Galaxy Note and use gaming as a marketing strategy. Along with the S-Pen, Samsung also released a video yesterday which suggests that the smartphone could feature a larger battery. According to previous rumours, this could be a 4,000 mAh Li-Ion battery. This comes in two years after the massive Galaxy Note 7 recall was initiated due to faulty batteries that would explode erratically. The new Note may also feature the all-new Corning Gorilla Glass 6. We also predict that the smartphone could have two chipset variants, one with Samsung’s own Exynos SoC and other with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. All the rumours hint at what could be Samsung’s best smartphone yet. However, the features which make the Galaxy Note 9 a good smartphone could also make the buyers pay a hefty price, and put the smartphone in the iPhone X price bracket of a 1000 US dollars. Here’s a video by Samsung teasing the new battery life for possibly the Galaxy Note 9.
