We previously heard that Fortnite for Android would be exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 at launch. Some of the checks include ones for the mobile GPU, device manufacturer, device model, and so forth.

There is a specific check to see if the device's brand, codename, and list of features matches that of the unreleased Galaxy Note 9. While the standard revenue cut is also 70% for developers and 30% for Samsung, Galaxy Apps Partners can get a better 80/20 cut. The invite shows a broad array of Samsung's product line-up, including a TV, Fridge, Washer and of course the soon to be announced Galaxy Note 9. But it's the new S Pen that really excites. It was reported that the exclusivity would last for around 30 days before Epic makes the game available to other compatible Android devices.

The former Schalke player is also likely to be absent for two Europa League group matches and the third round of the Carabao Cup. Before kicking off their Premier League season, Arsenal take on Lazio in their final pre-season friendly on Saturday.

The developer has confirmed that it won't use Google Play to distribute the game to Android users, but with the number of potential players on the platform, it could be that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 release will be a timed exclusive.

If true, it means it would be tougher for those without Samsung devices to play the game. They decompiled and analyzed the package, labeled as Fortnite version 5.20, and found that there are checks in place to ensure the game will only run on devices that Epic Games has whitelisted. The smartwatch will also be equipped with an NFC module for contactless payments but it will not support Samsung's "Magnetic Secure Transmission" technology. The retail box highlights some key details about the device such as a 6.4-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, a dual 12MP rear camera setup with the primary lens getting a variable aperture feature (f1.5/f2.4) and Dual Pixel PDAF support, and the secondary lens fixed at f/2.4 aperture.
