Back in February, Samsung launched version 4.0 of its Internet browser
, bringing numerous improvements to the table. At the time, Samsung's in-house mobile web browser was exclusively available on newer handsets such as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 5. If you've been yearning to use Samsung's improved web browser on an older Galaxy smartphone, then today is the day.
Users of older Samsung Galaxy devices can now install the latest version of the Samsung Internet browser. The list includes devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4
, the Galaxy Note 3
, and other devices running at least Android 5.0 Lollipop. For the full list of compatible devices, head on over to the source link below.
If you're wondering what the deal is, what you should know is that Samsung Internet v4.0 comes with notable improvements such as support for ad blocking extensions, the ability to launch online videos in a popup window and keep browsing the Internet with the video playing, as well as a Secret Mode that hides your online activity,
In addition to opening up the browser to older Galaxy phones, Samsung is also expanding the availability of its web browser to the Verizon-branded Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. Verizon's phones ship without Samsung's own browser installed, and up until today, users were not able to install the app on their devices from the Google Play link.
