Samsung Galaxy Note 9 is just days away from its August 9 launch and now a report has surfaced that Fortnite Android will be exclusive to the smartphone. The report from XDA claims that Epic Games’s battle royale sensation will be featured heavily at the Samsung’s Unpacked 2018 event and will be offered for a 30-day period.

Fortnite currently hold the title of the most popular game in the world and is available on Nintendo Switch, iOS, PS4, Xbox One and PC. There were reports of Fornite Android version to be released in ‘Summer’ but there is no official date. The game is its fifth season and will be a perfect opportunity to introduce it to Android Indian users since neither the Razer phone nor the Black Shark have released in India or widely in any part of the world. Popular Fortnite streamer ‘Ninja’ Blevins is also reported to be in talks to promote the game in the Android platform.

Samsung has found the perfect opportunity to attract customers and offers free V-Bucks, free skins and other offers to anyone who buys the Galaxy Note 9. In this game from Epic Games, V-bucks are used as a currency to buy battle pass, skins or gliders. The game is also said to get exclusive features for the phone like aiming and shooting that can be assisted using the Note 9’s S-Pen.

Another report from 9to5Google claims that the pre-orders of the Galaxy Note 9 will include a Fortnite Android micro-transactions that ranges from $100 to $150.And if you aren’t the gaming type, you can get a pair of wireless AKG headphones which are of the same amount as claimed by the website.

Samsung will be doing more than just tactical promotion. The launch video of the device may  feature the Fotrnite Android heavily. This will not only make it just a superior smartphone but gaming centric as well. And with the lack of gaming smartphones in India and aided by the Unreal Engine, Samsung might strike gold.
