You heard that right. The Note 9 will likely be your only way to play the online battle game for a while, as 9to5Google reports that Fortnite will be exclusive to the Note 9 for 30 days.
It might seem like an odd choice for Fortnite developer Epic Games to restrict the game’s Android debut to just one device. After all, Android is one of the few platforms that the wildly popular Fortnite has yet to conquer, and Android users have been anticipating the game’s arrival since Epic teased a summer launch.
Epic might launch the game in the Play Store on September 23rd, the report speculates, after the exclusivity deal expires.
A similar story was posted over at xda-developers, which has additional details about the Samsung-Epic partnership. The phone will be advertised as a gaming phone, and it’ll feature a vapor chamber heat pipe that should help with cooling. The handset will feature 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which should help with all your gaming needs. The 4,000 mAh battery, meanwhile, should be able to deliver excellent battery life. Of course, this isn’t the first time we hear about these features, and Samsung just started teasing them in ads earlier this week.
The xda report also notes that the Bluetooth enabled S-Pen will come with some Fortnite integration which sounds like the worst idea in the world.
More interesting is the fact that you’ll be able to extend your gaming experience to a bigger screen by hooking up the Note 9 directly to a desktop monitor without the need of a DeX Station accessory.
