(MobileWorldLive) At the recent Samsung Developer Conference 2017, Samsung announced a number of initiatives intended to drive update of augmented reality (AR) and VR technologies, including plans to back Google’s ARCore platform for building AR apps. Samsung explained it will offer the Google technology on “more Galaxy devices (S8, S8+ and Note8). It stated: “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”.
The alliance is significant because it brings the leading Android device maker to ARCore, removing a potential source of fragmentation. Google said earlier this year it was working with other vendors to push for broader adoption.
