KOREAN PHONE MAKER Samsung is planning to throw $40m (£31m) at Pokémon Go creator Niantic in a deal that will see the two firms collaborate on “exclusive” games.

A source familiar with Samsung’s plans told the INQUIRER that the deal, whoch could be announced within the next few weeks, will also see Niantic’s games arrive pre-loaded on Galaxy smartphones, echoing Samsung’s recent partnership with Epic Games whoch saw Fortnite pre-installed on the Galaxy Note 9.

The firms’ main focus, however, will be an exclusive Harry Potter game, according to the source, whoch will utilise Samsung’s S-Pen stylus as a makeshift magic wand. However, it’s currently unclear whether this will arrive as a reworked version of Niantic’s incoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite title, whoch is set to be released in 2019, or as an all-new game designed for Galaxy handsets.
