We are going to present you with a simple guide which would help you in installing & playing Fortnite battle royal on unsupported Android devices.
Disclaimers and Requirements
This guide makes use of an unofficial version of the game that has been ported in order to bypass restrictions on a device where the issue with a potential ban lies. So before we get started, you need to check if your phone is officially supported by the Fortnite beta version that has been released by Epic Games:
Fortnite Beta initially worked on the following devices:
- Samsung Galaxy: S7 / S7 Edge , S8 / S8+, S9 / S9+, Note 8, Note 9, Tab S3, Tab S4

If the phone that you use is compatible with Fortnite APK, then you will easily be able to download the Fortnite installer from the official website. With that being said, in case you deal with an error saying “device not supported”, then this would mean that there is no official app available for your Android device since the hardware allocated on your device does not support this game.
The Trick To Download and Install Fortnite APK For Unsupported Devices
We would trick Fortnite into thinking that your phone is actually a Samsung Galaxy S9. Thanks to our Dev Team since it is because of their efforts that you can download an APK file for Fornite and play it even on unsupported devices.
All you need is that your device should have ARM64 architecture, A.K.A. 64-bit. This has already become a standard for some time now and if your phone is a high-end Android which has been released in the past three years, you are good to go.
Before we begin, let us also talk about the potential of getting banned from the servers of Fortnite. Since we will provide you with a Modded version, the signature wouldn’t match that of the official APK from Epic Games.
If the modded version becomes popular, Epic Games is more likely to catch on & start looking for that signature that is now modified. This attracts chances that they might ban accounts that use the modified signature version, so you would have to proceed at your own risk. We strongly recommend that you use an alternate account before you start playing this version.
Step 1: Download the Modded APK
You will find the latest APK at the bottom of this post. Always look for the first Download link as the APK is frequently updated so that Epic Games’ takedowns can be bypassed.
When you click the download APK link below, you get the choice to open the APK in Mega or in your browser. You can open in Mega, but you can easily open the link in your browser which is hassle-free.
Once the APK download completed via your browser, tap “DOWNLOAD” to download the file directly on your device. Finally, you need to tap “OPEN” when prompted.
Step 2: Install the APK
Next, you will have to install the APK. Tap “Install” at the bottom of the page and begin the process. Once the process completes, tap “Open” to open Fortnite.
Step 3: Play Fortnite
Now all that is left for you to do is enjoy the Fortnite action. You must note that Epic’s servers have been overloaded with new players right now. This may result in you experiencing some issues while facing the initial download screen that you see on Fortnite. Just allow the app to retry download — eventually, things will come into place & you will be playing against your fellow Android users for the first time.
Note: Once you have downloaded the Modded APK file of Fortnite for unsupported devices, you need to uninstall the official version first & install the modded one (link given below) on your device. Also, remember that you would have to enable Unknown Sources section in your Android device’s settings before being able to install the file.
Download Fortnite APK For Unsupported Devices
Alternatively, you can also sign up for an Email Invite. If you find the official route more of your cup of tea, Epic Games has a signup link on their website. Users can receive emailed game invites after the beta becomes available.
All you need to do is simply tap “SIGN UP FOR EMAIL INVITE,” and begin the process. If you already have a Fortnite account, tap on “YES” on the following page in order to sign-in, or tap “NO” in order to create a new account.
Once you’ve been signed up for the email invite, there’s no telling when or if you will receive a download link. If you are interested in immediate results, use the Modded APK method given above.
