Samsung recently launched its native browser in the form of an open beta. It is an application that, although for the moment is in the development phase, has several interesting features that are worth giving an opportunity.
In addition, the browser is not only compatible with the Galaxy terminals of Samsung, since some users have been able to install and run without major problem on devices Nexus or Google Pixel.
Try the Samsung Internet Beta browser on your Nexus device. This variant of Samsung’s browser includes features that are not in the stable version. For example, it supports Progressive Web Applications, integrates a QR code reader and has the corresponding API to make payments from the browser through Samsung Pay.
On the other hand, this Beta version is based on Chromium 51. It is capable of playing video content in 360 degrees without needing a Gear VR helmet and visualizes video in a pop-up window. Among other interesting features, we find an automatic price comparator for Amazon when making online purchases.
Best of all, Samsung Internet Beta is compatible with both Galaxy devices and Google Nexus smartphones as long as they have a higher version of Android To 5.0 Lollipop. Before concluding, we have been able to try the browser on a OnePlus 3 with Android 7.1.1 to test the browser on this platform.
The app can now be downloaded from the Google Play Store on supported devices. Still, in some countries the download does not seem to be available at the moment, so below we provide a link to APKMirror from which to download the executable file safely and to be able to test Samsung Internet Beta.
