Fortnite Fans Rejoice as Samsung and Epic Games Announce Exclusive ‘Glow’ Galaxy Skin
Epic Games joins forces with Samsung to give the Galaxy Note10 users even more power
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 08 October, 2019 – Fresh off the heels of the launch of the Galaxy Note10, Samsung is celebrating its continuing partnership Fortnite developer Epic Games with the announcement of an exclusive in-game Glow skin available for almost all Galaxy device owners1. The design of the Glow skin is derived from the Galaxy Note10’s signature Aura Glow colour, created with free-thinking millennials in mind and inspired by the reflective light of a prism.
Available now, the new Glow skin joins an expanding roster of Samsung’s exclusive Fortnite content. Last year the two companies celebrated the game’s Android launch with the Galaxy Skin available only on the Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy TabS4. The partnership then expanded earlier this year with the launch of the iKONIK skin and accompanying dance move, Love Scenario, which was developed with K-Pop star Jung Chanwoo of the band iKON for the Galaxy S10.
“Offered on a wider range of devices, the new Glow skin will be based off last year’s Fate skin but will include a new colour combination based on the Galaxy Note10’s Aura Glow colour. The partnership reflects Samsung’s growing focus on delivering users cutting-edge gaming experiences and the global success of Fortnite, “says Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.
Since launching in 2017, the game has become a cultural phenomenon, reaching more than 250 million registered players at the beginning of 2019 and generating over $2 billion worldwide across all platforms. The partnership provides Samsung with store exclusivity, with the Android version of the game only available through the Galaxy Store and the Epic Games website, a recognition of Samsung’s devices as the gold standard of mobile gaming. The Galaxy Note10 is the company’s latest and greatest offering, with a suite of features that make training to be the next Fortnite world champion a breeze.
The Galaxy Note10’s Game Booster, an AI-based predictive performance enhancer, analyses your playing habits, as well as data from publishers including Epic Games, to optimise your gaming experience depending on your unique individual needs.

On top of these software innovations, the Galaxy Note10 also has significant hardware improvements.
