Samsung's recently launched high-end smartphones—Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Z Flip—are now available in the company's Remote Test Lab (RTL). Developers can now test their apps and games without buying these phones. The South Korean firm's test lab also offers free access to previous-generation smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets.
Developers can reserve the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, Galaxy S20 Ultra, and the Galaxy Z Flip in the Samsung Remote Test Lab to test their apps or games via a web browser. With more people now working remotely due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak, developers will be glad that they will be able to run and debug their apps from the safety of their homes.
Anyone can sign up to access the Remote Test Lab for free, select the preferred phone, and test their app before they publish it on the Galaxy Store or the Play Store. The Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip phones are available in Samsung's Remote Test Lab in Poland, South Korea, and the US, but they can be accessed from anywhere across the globe. Developers can even share the screen of the device with their fellow teammates or partners during testing.
Samsung provides 20 credits to each developer every day, and one credit can be used to access the Remote Test Lab service for 15 minutes. The minimum reservation time is 30 minutes (2 credits), and developers can spend as much as 40 credits to get access to devices for 10 hours every day.
