Choosing an APK
Warning: Installing APKs should only be done by technical users who are comfortable with the risk involved. While many devices are smart enough to prevent the wrong APK from being installed, there is always a chance that users could experience partial, or complete, data loss.
APKs marked as x86 or x64 (i.e.
Bravex86.apk) are for devices with Intel Atom CPUs, or are to be installed on emulators:
Bravex86.apk- Android 4.4 (32 bit OS)
BraveModernx86.apk- Android 5.0 … Android 6.x (32 bit OS)
BraveMonox86.apk- Android 7.0 and above (32 bit OS)
BraveMonox64.apk- Android 7.0 and above (64 bit OS)
APKs marked as arm or arm64 are for all other devices
Bravearm.apk- Android 4.4 (32 bit OS)
BraveModernarm.apk- Android 5.0 … Android 6.x (32 bit OS)
BraveMonoarm.apk- Android 7.0 and above (32 bit OS)
BraveMonoarm64.apk- Android 7.0 and above (62 bit OS)
For the most modern devices,
BraveMonoarm64.apk should be used.
Identifying which version of Android is used by your device
- Go to Settings, then About device.
- Alternatively, you can open Brave and navigate to about:version, where you'll find the OS version listed.
Identifying your device architecture
Unfortunately, this step isn't trivial. Identifying your device architecture will require third-party software which typically contains third-party ads and/or may have regional limitations. AIDA64 and CPU-Z both contain ads, and Phone Information is not avaiable in some regions.
