With the official launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S9 series smartphones at MWC 2018 looming closer, there is now word that Samsung will be allowing its visitors to interact with the phone in Augmented Reality (AR).
To continue building up the hype for the launch of its new flagship smartphones, Samsung recently launched its Unpacked 2018 app on Google Play. The app is intended for users who are registered and invited to the event, but it can be used by people who would want to view the live stream of Samsung MWC 2018 event.
For those who were doled out invitations by Samsung, the app also contains an AR scanner that can be used to scan special logos and boxes at the event. Thanks to the efforts of Reddit user /u/thesbros and XDA Developers, however, we now know that the app also contained official (and presumably, final) 3D models of the Galaxy S9, in all its AR glory.
Getting back on point, the images generally confirms several things; Lilac Purple is an official colour, the fingerprint sensor has been moved and situated just below the main camera, and the Bixby button is still there.
With all the Galaxy S9 leaks and rumours that have flooded the internet, it’s safe to say that this leak essentially lets us know what we can expect from Samsung during its MWC 2018 event.
