The Developer Support team can help answer questions related to Samsung specific SDKs and tools. The team will not do app development, we only provide guidance on how to use Samsung technologies. Do you want to test your app on a Samsung device but don't have access to one? Using the Remote Test Lab (RTL) service, remote access to an actual Samsung device is available! You can install and test your app, capture screenshots, record video, and monitor and download log information.
The Samsung Developer Program Technical Support team provides guidance to developers and designers who are integrating Samsung SDKs and/or using Samsung Tools. If the issue you are seeing is specific to Samsung devices, please see the following FAQ.
If you experience an issue in your application only in Samsung specific devices, please use the support form and provide the following information:
  • Code snippet and/or steps to reproduce the issue - in this case, how frequently does this happen?
  • Device information (Model ID, OS version, Build number)
  • dumpstate log
Please take the dump-state log by doing the following:
  • Immediately after reproducing the issue, dial *#9900# and, if the Debug Level is Disabled/LOW, tap to select MID. This restarts the device.
  • Again dial *#9900# and press RUN DUMPSTATE/LOGCAT/
  • When it is finished, press COPY TO SDCARD (INCLUDE CP RAMDUMP)
In the main folder of the device file system there is a new folder named 'log'. The log file should be there.

SPen SDK was deprecated in 2019, there is no official support for this SDK. That is why there is no official download link or implementation documentation available.
The SPen Remote SDK provides support for SPen in current devices.
The exposure time range depends on device capability, which is suitable for general purpose development. Even though the camera capability is limited, a configuration beyond the capability still works. But the consistency/ validity cannot be guaranteed in this case.
