Fortnite iKONIK skin is an eagerly anticipated new skin for Fortnite Battle Royale.
The skin was revealed last month alongside the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 – the South Korean tech giant’s new flagship phone.
This is the latest in a long line of exclusive, rare skins with one of the most sought after being the Fortnite Galaxy skin.
The skin is a K-Pop inspired outfit, and like the Galaxy skin is set to be one of the most in-demand Fortnite cosmetics.
The reason why it’s so exclusive is to get the skin you have to purchase a new phone.
The skin is a reward for those that purchase the Samsung Galaxy S10e, S10 or S10 Plus.
In a post online Samsung explained how you can claim your Fortnite iKONIK skin once you’ve bought one of these aforementioned devices…

However, fans will have to wait a little longer to get the Fortnite iKONIK skin as its release has been delayed.
The Samsung Support USA Twitter announced the delay, posting: “In order for #GalaxyS10 users to have the best experience redeeming the iKONIK outfit and Scenario emote, Samsung and Epic Games are taking extra time to further review this process before making the promotion widely available.”
In a related promotion Samsung will also be hosting a special Fortnite event in New York that involves Ninja and K-Pop star iKON – the inspiration of the iKONIK skin.
