Jumping on the battle royale craze, Activision is out with Call of Duty Mobile. It is similar to PUBG and Fortnite, though far more polished than them in terms of graphics and gameplay. Right now, the game is in closed beta which means it is not available for everyone to download from Google Play.

You will have to sideload the game on your Android device manually. This might not be as simple as downloading the game from Google Play but its not rocket science either.

It is unclear as to what all devices Call of Duty Mobile supports right now. The game worked just fine on my Poco F1 so it should presumably work just fine on other Snapdragon 845 and Snapdragon 855-powered devices as well.
