Fortnite on Android: From Samsung Galaxy Note 9 to Google Pixel 2: 40 smartphones that will support the game, is coming to Android soon. The game developer, Epic Games, has already marched in the IOS-powered mobile market back in April, keeping the Android user waiting. The game has managed to earn a significant amount of revenue of $100 million in just three months.
