As the port requires a device with a high memory capacity to run adequately, the game only currently supports Nokia Lumia (models 1520, 1320, 822, 820, 810) and the HTC 8XT smartphones. The game will add support for more smartphone models in the future. Additionally, at least 2.5GB of free storage space is necessary to download Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The mobile port was first released on iOS in mid-December, followed by a launch on Google Play for Android smartphones and the Amazon Appstore for Kindle devices earlier this month. The Android version supports controllers such as PowerA's Moga peripheral. The mobile port features high-resolution graphics, more than 70 hours of gameplay, revised controls for smartphones and cloud-save support via the Rockstar Social Club.
