How to download fortnite on Samsung Mobile Phones: (August 18th, 2020 update)
Although Apple and Google have removed the Fortnite app from their virtual stores, owners of Samsung devices can download it from the Galaxy Store.
In the past few hours, Google and Apple have removed the famous game Fortnite from its reference stores following a violation of the contractual rules by the developer Epic Games .
Fortnite: 8.2 GB of downloads from the Galaxy Store
In a nutshell, the publisher has released an update for the well-known battle royale that included the ability to make in-app payments bypassing the restrictions of the two giants. In response, the two companies have canceled Fortnite from the App Store and Play Store . So Epic Games retorted with a subpoena.
However, what not everyone knows is that the game can be downloaded both from the official website (for Android device owners only) by installing the APK through a slightly cumbersome but equally functional procedure. On the other hand, owners of Samsung Galaxy phones can install and download it without problems from the Galaxy Store .
The game has a size of 8.2 GB and the download takes some time (we advise you to download it over WiFi). But be careful: it may not be compatible with all the devices of the South Korean brand as it is very demanding in terms of resources. To take full advantage of it you need a fairly powerful hardware. To be clear, mid-range and recent top-of-the-range can support it without problems.
Also know that in-game purchases within Fortnite don’t work at the moment. If you try to buy something from the internal store you may find yourself faced with the message “The product does not exist in this store”.
We don’t know when and if Epic Games will correct this error. In the past, the French company has collaborated with Samsung several times to provide exclusive content such as skins, bonus points and even special tournaments
