Samsung Browser doesn't detect PWA standalone mode

Hi. I’ve come here from the thread started 2 years ago on the GitHub Issues ( The problem is that Samsung Internet displays “browser” mode instead the “standalone” mode, when it opens a PWA.

Mode detection in other major browsers such as Chrome, Opera, Firefox, Edge and Safari works fine. Only Samsung seems to have a problem with that :confused: The browser returns wrong mode in CSS and in JS. Is there any chance that this (bug actually) will be fixed in the near future?

To be precise, PWA installs on the device and opens properly in standalone mode. But when I want to check the display mode property it returns “browser”. As I mentioned earlier, in both cases - CSS and JS.

A member of our engineering team is taking a look at this and I hope to have a reply back to you soon.
