It’s no longer a requirement to own a Samsung Galaxy device in order to get into the Fortnite Android beta program.
Using its Twitter handle, Fortnite has confirmed that the Android beta program is now open to more non-Samsung phones, including the Pixels, Huawei’s and even the Essential Phone. Prior to today, Fortnite had only confirmed the list of devices that will at some point support the game, but now owners of devices on this list can download and start playing the beta version of the game right away.
