Banner Requirements, Specifications, and Recommendations

Learn about requirements and guidelines for Android and Theme app banner component images, and for Galaxy Watch app banner images.

After you request banner promotion, your apps will be evaluated, and Samsung will determine whether banner promotion is well-suited:

  • After acceptance of your request for an Android or Theme app banner:

    • Samsung will create either a main, rolling, or mini banner (see below).
    • You can optionally submit banner component images that may be used by Samsung in your banner image.
    • Samsung marketing technicians will create a banner image to promote your app, your content set, or your entire product line, based on your submitted images (when submitted and deemed appropriate) and/or based on images selected by Samsung technicians.
  • After acceptance of your request for Galaxy Watch app banner:

    • You must design, create, and submit your banner image file to promote one app, one content set of multiple apps, or your entire product line.
    • After Samsung reviews and approves, your banner image will be used.

Recommendations

  • Branding content

    • Create a brand logo and include it in your image.
    • Include branding text in your image.
  • Watch faces

    • Include watch faces that demonstrate the quality of your company and products.
    • Display your watch faces inside the latest, most popular Galaxy Watch devices.
      Download the latest device images from the Samsung Mobile Press gallery.
    • Display watch faces at large sizes.
  • Text

    • Less text in the image is better.
    • Do not state the type of supported watch device.
      Your banner is displayed only to customers with compatible devices.
    • Make sure text is large enough to be read by all customers.
    • If you do not include non-branding text, then you do not need to localize it.
    • When including non-branding text:
      • Restrict non-branding text to catchy phrases
        (such as ‘Wear an original’ or ‘Timelessness never passes’).
      • Create separate images with non-branding text localized for each of the top markets: German, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, and Korean.
  • Before you submit images, test them on your phone for readability and suitability.

  • If you submit images with localized language text, then localize your apps’ product detail pages in those languages.

  • After your banner image is published:

    • Verify that the banner image links to either: your app product detail page (banners for a single app), a list page with your apps (banners for multiple apps), or your seller brand page (banners for your entire product line).
    • Verify that the localized versions are displayed in the Remote Galaxy Store countries.
