However, we suggest you to check whether your device is supported or not.

The game is compatible with the Android devices having Snapdragon 820, HiSilicon Kirin 970 and Exynos 8890 or higher SoC under the hood. The most interesting part is that the Epic Games has already decided some restrictions in order to improve the security and provide transparent gameplay.
