Fortnite and Samsung are no strangers when it comes to collaborating on an exclusive skin.

During the release of the Samsung Galaxy S9, it also came bundled with the “Galaxy Skin“, which at the time was one of the most unique skins we have seen.

Two phones later and here we are again, it seems Fortnite and Samsung are gearing up once again to release an exclusive skin. Let’s go over everything we know so far!


What Is The Skin?

If you do not want to purchase a brand new phone, there are plenty of sites that will be selling code for this skin once it releases. Usually, a skin like this would sell for around $50 USD!

Release Date?

As noted above, Samsung has an event on February 11, 2020, so this seems to be when they are going to announce the release date for their new phones. In the meantime, Samsung has hinted that this is the new exclusive skin for the S11. Replying to a fan question on Twitter with the following:

“I’ve just checked and at the moment, we don’t have any information about this skin, which looks good by the way. I suggest to watch the Galaxy Unpacked live stream on Tuesday, February 11. Perhaps we will announce something about a new skin, who knows.. ^Bruce”

This all but confirmed the partnership but be on the lookout for more official announcements!
