It's the same version expected for other platforms later this week
It will possibly be a timed exclusive to the Note 9 and Tab S4
Fortnite Mobile for Android could be exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in addition to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 according to recent reports. What's more is, the Fortnite Android APK is already on the version 5.2 patch, which is expected to go live on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Nintendo Switch later this week. Serial Fortnite Android leaker XDA claims to have access to the Fortnite Android APK and has been able to data-mine what we can expect from the coming patch that will hit Fortnite Mobile for Android as well.

As and when Fortnite Mobile for Android is made playable for other Android devices, this is what you can expect. As per evidence through analysing the API Epic uses to decide what Fortnite promotions and services an Epic account is entitled to and the output of said API, it appears that you'll need a rather recent Android device if you plan to play the mobile version of Fortnite on Google's OS. The output was updated on August 2 as per a report from XDA.
Fortnite Android minimum requirements
Here are the minimum requirements needed to run Fortnite Mobile on Android.
OS: 64-bit Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher
RAM: 3GB or higher
GPU: Adreno 530 or higher, Mali-G71 MP20, Mali-G72 MP12 or higher
If this is correct, it would mean that like other Unreal Engine games, it's more GPU than CPU limited. Most devices with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and Samsung Exynos 8895 or higher should be able to play Fortnite Mobile.
