Minimum and recommended Genshin Impact requirements in 2024

If you have been thinking of downloading Genshin Impact on your mobile but have doubts about whether you can move it, below you can see the minimum requirements to be able to play it as well as the recommended requirements to be able to play it with a graphic quality higher than the lowest.

Since its launch in 2020, the game has received numerous content updates and although the majority of minimum and recommended requirements have remained intact, it is true that now need a lot more free storage space to be able to install all the resources you need. Let’s see it in detail.

Genshin Impact Requirements on Android

First, we will review the Genshin Impact minimum requirements on Android devices which are the following:

  • OS: Android 7.0 or higher.
  • Processor: ARMv8-A 64 bits, similar or higher.
  • RAM: 3 GB.
  • Storage: 8 GB or more. At least 32 GB.

These are the recommended requirements For optimal performance:

  • OS: Android 8.1 or higher.
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, Kirin 810, similar or higher.
  • RAM: 4GB.
  • Storage: 8 GB or more. At least 32 GB

Starting with the minimum requirements, Genshin Impact simply requires a 64-bit processor to run, something that 100% of more or less recent mobile phones comply with (64-bit processors began to be a standard in mobile phones in 2014). Additionally, the Android version must be at least Android 7, and the RAM must be 3 GB.

With that, the game has the minimum necessary to execute. Now, if we want to have a better experience, the device should get closer to the recommended requirements and, if possible, exceed them.

What processor is recommended?

It is recommended that the processor be, at least, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or equivalent in power, such as a Kirin 810, an Exynos 880, or a Dimensity 800. These are processors launched in 2018, so the majority of more modern processors will be capable of offering power equal to or greater than those models. As usual, the best thing will be to be one step above. For example, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 onwards (Snapdragon 888, Snapdragon 7 Gen, Snapdragon 8 Gen,…) are the best processors for this game or the latest models from Dimensity (MediaTek) and Exynos (Samsung).

Furthermore, it is also recommended a minimum of 4 GB of RAM, since 3 GB may be a little short depending on the device and its memory consumption. So the ideal is at least 4 GB, although if it can be 6 or 8 GB, much better.

And what about storage?

They deserve a separate mention of storage requirements. When Genshin Impact was launched, the requirement was only 8 GB of free space on the terminal, but as we said at the beginning, the numerous content updates have made the game now weigh much more. To check this, we have reinstalled Genshin Impact on our test device, and downloading resources now occupies… no less than 29.4 GB!

Weight in GB of Genshin Impact in 2024
To install Genshin Impact we will currently need at least 30 GB free on the mobile.

Once installed and downloaded all the necessary resources, we went to the application settings on our phone, and The total space it occupies is 31.15 GB.

This means that what is recommended now will be, to At least have 32 GB of free space on your device, although it is better to have a few more GB just in case. Furthermore, as you play, the space occupied increases, since some data is stored in cache, and the most normal thing is that with the following updates, this data will only increase.

What Android phones are compatible with Genshin Impact?

Any mobile device that meets the requirements that we have just seen is a priori compatible with the game. Even so, there may be mobile phones that, even meeting the minimum, are not capable of running the game. In the same way, there could also be mobile phones that without reaching the mobile requirements are capable of moving it, although the gaming experience is not going to be the best.

In any case, we recommend visiting our article on the best mobile phones to play Genshin Impactin in addition to seeing a list of compatible devices, we also recommend a series of mobile phones with which you can play it without any problem.
