Question on Note 4 Models and digital eyewear

May 8, 2015 - 3:40pm #1


I'm looking to purchase a suitable Note 4 phone to work with the Digital Eyewear SDK. The Note 4 commonly available for purchase in Canada is model number SM-N910W8. I'm noticing that the release notes indicate that models SM-N910F, SM-N910G, SM-N910T, SM-N910V and SM-N910A are compatible.

Two questions.

1. Will the digital eyewear SDK be usable on this phone? I have researched and other users have successfully run Gear VR apps on Canadian phones. I am concerned, though, that the Vuforia license will not recognize the device.

2. In case an answer to my first question is not available: is it possible to run digital eyewear apps on the Note 4 without the Gear VR hardware? I ask because this would allow me to purchase a phone and test the SDK before ordering the GearVR hardware.

Thank you very much,


Question on Note 4 Models and digital eyewear

Took a gamble and purchased the SM-N910W8, having researched that it is identical in hardware configuration to the N910T (and even reads N910T under the battery). Despite this, I am getting the same license key errors other users have reported ("Vuforia App Key is not valid for this product..."). 

I successfully installed the Oculus apps on the phone with no issues.

Is there a reason why a N910W8 phone should be invalid for use with Vuforia Digital Eyewear, when a N910T phone with identical hardware is? If not, is an update planned that will accommodate this model?
