Apex Legends Mobile Requirements
Apex Legends is extraordinarily graphically sophisticated. Packed with detail, this game requires players to have optimized their phones in order to play. Apex Legends mobile may not be playable on all devices, so it may be best to check your device specs before committing to the game.
Mobile gamers will soon be able to play Fortnite using Android too! When Epic Games launched Fortnite for Android, the game was initially available only for popular flagship smartphones. As time goes by and development continues, you will likely see Fortnite for Android become more accessible on less high-end devices.
For players frustrated by compatibility issues, the developers have shared the following statement:
“The mobile devices supported by this test do not represent the finally launched version, and we will support more models in the future.”
Right now, players across social media have confirmed that the following devices DO NOT work with Apex Legends Mobile.
- Vivo Y50
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy S9
- Oneplus 6
- Oneplus 7 and 7T
- Oneplus 8 and 8T
- Redmi Note 10
The following devices are just a few that have been confirmed as an Apex Legends Mobile compatible devices by users.
- Samsung Galaxy M51
- Xiaomi M11
- Realme X
It seems that the developers are targeting mid-tier mobile devices for their testing, and powerful phones with Snapdragon 800+ processors and 6+ GB of RAM are having incompatibility issues.
The official requirements are as follows:
- A11 Bionic and above for iOS
- Snapdragon 625 or above on Android
- 1.34 GB free storage space minimum
- Android 6.0 and up only
While many users fit these requirements, there are many reasons why they cannot access the game right now, including:
- Limited closed-beta slots that are already full
- The developers are targeting only a specific hardware configuration for testing ahead of the full open beta, which EVERYONE will be able to access soon
Players with issues are advised not to force install the game from other sources as they will be handed temporary bans. The closed beta will end in India on May 1st, 2021, to give players in the Philippines a chance to test the game.
