HONOR Devices Compatible with Fortnite Mobile

With a rating of 12 years and over, the Battle Royale version of Fortnite is proving to be an all-time blockbuster, drawing in players to this multiple player online game in their millions. Many of you familiar with Fortnite will have eagerly awaited the recent release of the Android version on 7 September 2018. But before you get dropped in to the Fortnite island you may be asking which HONOR devices are compatible with Fortnite mobile.

Extreme demands on graphics processing

Initial indicators from Epic Games suggested that Fortnite Mobile could run on 64-bit Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher. Since then, in recognition of the extreme demands on graphic processing, Epic are recommending:

  • • Android 8.0 or higher
  • • A minimum of 3GB RAM
  • • A graphics processing unit (GPU): Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
  • It is also emphasised that with earlier versions of the Android OS you will encounter significant performance issues.

    Key features of HONOR devices compatible with Fortnite mobile

    While the majority of current HONOR smartphones run Android 8.0 or higher, it is the speed and performance of the graphics processor unit (GPU) that is critical, so currently it is the HONOR smartphones with Mali-G72 MP 12 GPUs that are best suited to playing Fortnite Mobile.

    HONOR has also developed a proprietary enhancement, GPU Turbo, to dramatically improve gaming performance. It is one of the key features in the HONOR Play, but it is also used on the HONOR 10 and it will become available as an update for other devices. GPU Turbo automatically recognises games such as Fortnite, improving graphic performance by 60% while reducing power losses by 30%. You may also notice an improvement in frame rate, or frames per second (FPS).
