Samsung Electronics today revealed the revamped Samsung Remote Test Lab program, which allows developers to easily test their applications virtually and remotely on thousands of Samsung Galaxy devices, now including the Galaxy S21 series with One UI 4 beta, and the latest Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G. The Remote Test Lab program makes it much more efficient for developers to test their new applications, as they don’t have to cover any hardware costs.
With global access to the Remote Test Lab program, developers from around the world will be able to test their applications remotely on Galaxy test devices, regardless of the country they reside in. Over the last ten years, Samsung has built Remote Test Labs around the world, including in India, Poland, South Korea and the United States. To make access to the program’s services faster and more reliable than ever before,1 Samsung has now scaled up the program to include labs in Brazil, Russia, the United Kingdom and Vietnam.
“We wouldn’t have been able to offer such innovative mobile experiences to our users without our incredible developer community,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “That’s why we are investing our expertise and innovative technology to support developers – they are crucial partners as we continue to expand our open Galaxy ecosystem.”
To create an enhanced test experience, Samsung released the new version of the program.2 Developers will get access to an automated testing tool that will allow them to monitor CPU and memory consumption when running their apps and check if an application has any impact on system resources. And thanks to a new web client service, the program features an improved user interface and enhanced graphics. In the near future, developers will be able to use a new communication channel, giving them direct access to Samsung experts who can advise them on how to improve their app performance.
The new Samsung Remote Test Lab program showcases Samsung’s commitment to helping partners and developers take advantage of revolutionary features, like the foldable experience of the Galaxy Z series, defense-grade security with Samsung Knox, and seamless connectivity with One UI. Through the rebooted Remote Test Lab program, Samsung will continue to partner closely with developers all over the world, helping them push boundaries and unlock new heights of innovation.
