We added new emulators for the following Samsung Galaxy S devices.

  • S7, S7 Edge
  • S8, S8+
  • S9, S9+

The above devices support three different resolutions - HD, Full HD and Wide angle quad HD. Below is a screenshot from a real S7 device showing the three available resolutions. 

 

The new emulators allow users to select both the device and the resolution. Below is the full list of new emulators along with their screen size and resolution. Please use Sauce Platform Configurator to look up the desired capabilities for the below emulators.
