Fortnite 'exclusive' on the Galaxy Note 9 is a joke

The next-gen Samsung Galaxy Note phablet has been in the rumor mill for a while now, so the many rumors and leaks we bumped into over the last few weeks covered virtually everything about it. Fortnite's exclusivity to Samsung devices could be worth a lot of money for the Korean company, which would give Epic some leverage in getting a bigger cut of the revenue.

Epic Games is planning to port Fortnite Mobile over to Android, though the question is when will it finally happen?

And while Fortnite Mobile for Android is skipping Google Play, XDA have unearthed evidence that it might be coming to Samsung's app store known as Samsung Galaxy Apps.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will also support DeX but the latest leak suggests that an HDMI cable and an adapter is sufficient for DeX to work.

The new S Pen is described on the leaked packaging as "S Pen with remote control".

"The game has several checks in place such as for the mobile GPU, manufacturer, and model to decide whether the device should be allowed to run the game", XDA explains.

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.

Even if you somehow find a way past these checks, perhaps by using a modified APK, you still won't be able to play the game unless your Fortnite account has been white-listed by Epic Games. The offer is valid for a new line activation and only if you finance your brand-new device for a period of 24 months.

It seems customary now for most soon-to-be-launched devices to experience a whole bunch of leaks before they're officially unveiled. While that has never been corroborated by Epic Games or Samsung, there is new evidence that seemingly confirms that will be the case.
