The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were announced back in February 25 at Mobile World Congress 2018, in Barcelona. During the live presentation on stage, Samsung told everyone in attendance that they could test through their own smartphones camera how the Galaxy S9 looks in the hand, thanks to an app the South Korean OEM developed which takes advantage of Augmented Reality technology.
The application, namely Experience app for Galaxy S9/S9+ is now available for free through Google Play store to anyone with an Android device that runs version 6.0 or a newer iteration of Google’s mobile operating system.
Experience app for Galaxy S9/S9+ simulates some of the key features on the aforementioned devices, but on your own smartphone. A ‘try before you buy‘ kind of thing, except everything happens in the virtual space. This is Samsung’s idea of how to let people “test” early the Galaxy S9’s before they become available in stores, on March 16.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have my hands on the real thing when the phones arrive on shelves in local stores rather than taking a virtual tour. But if you are curious about the experience just hit the download link below.
