Samsung Confirm Fortnite Exclusive iKONIK skin/outfit will be retired – Previously Leaked GLOW Skin decrypted
Samsung have confirmed the Ikonik skin will be retired on 9/26 with a new skin replacing it. The previously leaked Glow skin was recently decrypted, all but confirming it’ll be the next Samsung exclusive skin.
There have been a couple of Samsung exclusive skins so far with the current available exclusive skin being the iKONIK skin. In the v10.30 update, dataminer S1l0x managed to leak an encrypted skin called “glow” with a codename of “Da Vinci”. Da Vinci was the code name of the Note 10, so it seemed likely it would be a Samsung exclusive skin.
