One of the releases we expect before the end of the year is the 'Call of Duty: Mobile', the mobile version of the famous Activision franchise. The game is already operational in Australia and Canada Android and iOS, but it is not accessible from the rest of the world unless we have a VPN and know how to use it. It is therefore curious that yesterday, during the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, let's see that game running.
The Korean firm spent enough minutes of its Unpacked to talk about the benefits that its new flagships offer players, but did not say that 'Call of Duty: Mobile' was preinstalled on them. Beside Fortnite, by the way. And if we look at the recent history of the company and pay attention to what was said in Unpacked, it would not be unusual for 'Call of Duty: Mobile' to come to Android exclusively with Samsung, at least temporarily.
The new 'Fortnite'?

One of the most interesting events of last year in the world of mobile games was the arrival of 'Fortnite'next to Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The Battle Royale of Epic Games came exclusively to Samsung Galaxy during the first three days to, later, be released and accessible on other devices. In fact, the APK only worked with the hardware of Samsung phones, so removing it and forcing manual installation was useless.
In the case of 'Call of Duty: Mobile' there is no official confirmation that it will be exclusive, but there are indications. 'Call of Duty' is an eminently multiplayer game that is most enjoyed playing with friends, and it is noteworthy that Samsung took advantage of yesterday's event to announce the integration with Discord in Game Launcher, simultaneous screen and internal camera recording, Game Booster and steam chamber cooling.

All of them are functions designed for the most gamers. If that adds to the drip of slides in which 'Call of Duty: Mobile' is seen running in a Note 10, the puzzle pieces begin to fit. In Charlie Intel they affirm that "Activision has said that more information will arrive in the coming days and weeks", so it is likely that sooner rather than later we will know if 'Call of Duty' will arrive to Android from the hand of Samsung or if, following In the wake of 'Fornite', there will be some exclusive content such as a playable character or a skin.
Many of the functions announced yesterday are designed for games like, precisely, 'Call of Duty'
Be that as it may, it is still striking that 'Call of Duty: Mobile' was preinstalled on mobile phones that could be tested in the presentation, even more if we take into account that it was in Brooklyn (New York) and that the game is not available there. It remains in the air if all buyers of a Note 10 will have the game preinstalled or if it will only be available in certain markets (a matter of servers, mainly).
In Xataka Android we had the opportunity to try it ('Call of Duty: Legend War', at that time) and the game points ways. However, Battle Royale mode was not activated and from Sammobile they say it was. The game is expected to arrive soon and be free. This is confirmed by your App Store file, in which we can also see the price of all micropayments included.
