Someone modified the Samsung Unpacked app to show the Galaxy S9 in AR

By now, we have a pretty good idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S9 will look like along with its assortment of pretty colors in full press renders. Today theres a more unique kind of leak, one that involves AR.

Samsung always releases an Unpacked app for its attendees to scan QR codes for entry and for the general public who would like to watch the events live stream. Tucked away in the app is an AR feature that would let attendees view hints and teasers leading up to the event.

Well, an XDA-Developers member decompiled the apps APK and was able to extract 3D renders of the Galaxy S9. This would work by scanning an event pass in order to see a virtual phone in your hand but the app was modified to go around all of that and access to the 3D models was granted.






In these renders, we also see that slotted speaker port, like the one we saw in the render of the updated Samsung DeX, which would coincide with a newly tuned dual-loudspeaker system. Otherwise, we pretty much get confirmation on the Lilac Violet and Coral Blue color options, alongside the regular Black and Gray ones. Check out the source link for the full set of images.

All will be revealed this Sunday, February 25 where Samsung will take the stage in Barcelona to announce the Samsung Galaxy S9 alongside the Galaxy S9+. We are expecting to see a new revolutionary camera with a variable aperture and slow-motion capabilities with higher frame rates than what were used to these days.
