Samsung likely to give Galaxy S9 its own version of Apple's Animoji

The 3D emoji are poised to be very similar to the Animoji, in terms of a 3D character that tracks facial movements and mimics them. The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends.

Many Galaxy S8 fans were relieved that Samsung was finally rolling out the update after almost half a year since the OS was made official by Google.

Stereo speakers, they're a classic but they're not going away as the S9 will allegedly come packing a pair. For that to achieve Samsung might be even ready to pull one of its born-rival, Apple's - Animoji inspired emoticons.

According to Korean site ETNews, Samsung will install two speakers on the Galaxy S9 - one at the top and another at the bottom - for stereo sound.

Around this time a year ago, most rumors said that Apple would do something no other smartphone maker was capable of with the the iPhone X. It turns out Apple did, but not the way we thought.

Snapchat Redesign Under Criticism Among Users
But before you panic, consider that Instagram won't be sending push notifications to users when someone screenshots their story. The company added 8.9 million users during the fourth quarter of 2017 after several quarters of declining user growth rates.

The patent, which has been titled as "Electronic apparatus employing full front screen" has also revealed the presence of a new pressure sensor just under the display on the front side of the phone. The new Dex pad is said to be launched alongside the Galaxy S9 Duo.

The idea of an in-screen fingerprint scanner has been thrown around for a while thanks to phone rumours, especially where both Apple and Samsung are concerned.

Samsung has a good habit of copying a lot of features from Apple for its Galaxy S phones, and it appears that it will do the same with Apple's Animoji feature.

Samsung may also switch from Foursquare to Google for the augmented reality feature of Bixby Vision which enables the service to provide information about landmarks close to the user.

It also might be too late for Samsung to have implemented the tech, Synaptics' sensor was only unveiled in December, and only proved itself as a working concept last month.
