Samsung has announced that it has teamed up with Google and will be using their ARCore platform with their Samsung Galaxy devices and their Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones.
The news of this new partnership was revealed at Samsung’s Developer Conference, and the S8 S8 Plus and Note 8 will support ARCore at first.
Samsung is known for creating technology that breaks the boundaries of what’s currently possible. Augmented reality has introduced a new experience by bridging our digital and physical worlds. During the Samsung Developer Conference (SDC 2017), we shared our vision for the rapidly evolving AR landscape through our partnership with Google to extend the ARCore platform to more Galaxy devices (S8, S8+ and Note8) bringing the best AR experiences to our users. While this is driven by the strengths of our mobile devices, we believe the future of AR will extend beyond the smartphone as we apply advances in machine learning and computer vision to move from recording the world to understanding it.
