Samsung and Google Join Hands to Enhance Android-based XR Platform

The South Korean firm Samsung has recently tied up knots with the Big G Google for an amazing product. If you have forgotten, let us remind you in the Galaxy Unpacked Event 2023, TM Roh, President of Samsung’s MX Divison, invited Hiroshi Lockheimer (Google’s Senior Vice President) and Cristiano Amon (Qualcomm’s CEO) to the stage. They have talked about the new animated Samsung XR headset. Let’s know more about it.

Informatively, the new animated Samsung XR headset will be based on Big G’s Android and will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor. However, on this new Android-based XR platform, none of the three companies has shared some words with us; even in the Galaxy Unpacked, the shared info regarding it was quite limited. In Google I/O 2023, they made an announcement regarding Android’s one of main products- VR devices.

Let us tell you, in Google I/O 2023, Sameer Samat (Vice President of the Android Ecosystem division of Google) said that “Together with Samsung, we are building a new immersive XR platform based on Android“. He also added that more details regarding this new XR platform will be unveiled during the running year 2023. Notably, besides mobile devices, Android has 3 billion active devices in the non-mobile category as well.

In the non-mobile category, Android TV, Android Auto, and Wear OS are included, and it has been expected that virtual space will also be a great sector where Android can expand a lot in the coming time. Hence, they joined hands with the Korean firm as they have a new device nearly ready, which will be developed with the Big G’s OS platform Android. The good thing is it may count on the Play Store and popular Android features.
