You didn’t see that one coming. Samsung Galaxy smartphones offer a multitude of possibilities, but we didn’t expect this comical surprise, to say the least: a chihuahua is hidden on absolutely all models. What? What ? The answer now.
A hidden chihuahua on Samsung Galaxy smartphones
This is a phenomenon that is taking on a rather crazy scale. I may be exaggerating a bit. But, among all the products that Samsung offers for sale, smartphones are selling very well. Millions of models are therefore in circulation, and they all have one thing in common that is quite… unusual. Indeed, no matter what files you have on your phone, you have it, that’s for sure.
A chihuahua, or more precisely a photo of a chihuahua does exist on all Samsung phones. On the other hand, you cannot stumble upon it by chance. There is a little manipulation to do. And nothing to do with a photo pre-installed in the gallery to advertise the camera.
To find the famous miniature dog, you have to know a little about smartphone tweaking. Each Samsung Galaxy model has a special mode for performing device diagnostics. To get there, you have to go to the “Phone” appet open the numeric keypad, as if you wanted to type in a number and make a call. You can try at home.
It’s necessary type the following combination: *#0*#. By typing the last character, a menu you have never seen before is displayed in front of you. This is the diagnostics page. Given the look, we understand that it is not made for ordinary mortals. We can see the different elements of the phone that can be tested such as the speakers, the touchscreen, the colors or the camera.
Simply select “SENSOR”, and a new page appears with numbers everywhere. It hurts the eyes a little, but focus on the two words placed at the very top right of the screen. Click on it, and BOOM! A chihuahua.
Tons of questions come to mind, and we understand you. What is this photo doing here? Who put it here? Does it have any hidden function that could reveal a lot about the Korean brand? So many unanswered questions.
A new entrant in this business is Samsung Singapore’s TikTok account, who responded to the video with this sentence:
Oof, the dog is out of the hat now.
A sentence in reference to the English expression “the cat is out of the bag”, meaning that a mystery has just been unveiled. The mystery deepens…
