Can my phone play Apex Legends Mobile?

Best answer: Supported Android devices must be running Android 6.0 or later, use a Snapdragon 435 (or equivalent) CPU, and have at least 3GB of RAM. If you have a newer Android phone from the last few years, you should be good to go. 

What is Apex Legends Mobile?

Apex Legends Mobile is a new battle royale experience developed by Respawn specifically for mobile devices. Like Apex Legends on consoles, it features a handful of hero characters, dubbed Legends, with unique abilities that can be used during matches. The mobile version also features 6v6 Team Deathmatch in addition to its battle royale mode, and it features the mobile exclusive Legend, Fade. 

Respawn says that Apex Legends Mobile will have its own update cadence and separate seasons from Apex Legends on console and PC. 

What Android devices support Apex Legends Mobile?

Apex Legends Mobile runs on Android devices with Android 6.0 and up. Released back in 2015, Android 6.0 is a fairly older operating system and is no longer supported with security patch updates. If you've purchased a newer phone within the past five years or so, your phone should be able to run it. Some of the best Android phones like the Galaxy S22 and Google Pixel 6 most assuredly can run it just fine. 

Though Apex Legends Mobile requires 3GB of RAM to run, Android devices with 2GB RAM will be supported if they are from Huawei, Motorola, Samsung, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Oppo, or Vivo.

The minimum requirements are as follows:

  • Android 6.0 or later
  • CPU: Snapdragon 435, Hisilicon Kirin 650, Mediatek Helio P20, or Exynos 7420
  • At least 3GB RAM
  • At least 4GB of storage space
  • Screen sizes: N/L/XL

The battle royale now in your pocket

With Apex Legends Mobile now available worldwide, plenty of players are jumping into the battle royale. Unless your phone is incredibly old, you'll be able to play and have fun with your friends. In our time with it we found the new mobile exclusive Legend, Fade, to be a great character to play, unsurprising since he was built specifically for mobile.
