Samsung to Copy iPhone X Animoji Feature for Galaxy S9 [Report]

Samsung is reportedly planning to copy Animoji, the popular 3D animated character feature found on the iPhone X.

ETNews says that the Samsung Galaxy S9 will feature a 3D Emoji feature that is more advanced than Apple's Animoji.

The Galaxy S9 series is equipped with the '3D Emoji' function, which is more advanced than the iPhone X (Ten) Animoji. The exact name will be announced on the 25th. Creates a 3D character based on the face of the user, and makes fine movements. It can be used in place of emoticons in characters and messenger. You can choose a stored animal character and so on.

The S9 is also expected to feature iris recognition and fingerprint recognition; although, the fingerprint sensor is said to have changed position under the rear camera.

The Galaxy S9 Plus will purportedly feature a rear dual lens camera with improved autofocus and an aperture of f/1.5. It's also said to have a new speaker on the side for better audio when playing games, movies, and music.

More details on the Galaxy S9 can be found here.

Hahahaha Samsung as innovative as usual. Took them long enough to do it.

Yeah only took Apple 5 years to provide the same wireless charging tech alll other phones had too. Such innovation... wow

One could say that a company may have needed enough parts in order to do it, but at least we had those wireless charging stickers we could put onto our 6(s) to give us wireless charging before the out of the box version came out. Aside from this, their are many other things (_|_)amsung copied more than apple copied from them.

Ah, no. Just plain no. Another Apple fig who cannot take a decent look at all the smartphone trends. Here’s a list: high pixel density displays came on Androids first, OLED displays came on Androids first, edge to edge (bezel less displays) were on Androids first, finger print biometric readings were on Androids first, Qi wireless charging came on Android first, water resistant and dust resistant phones were on Android first, Fast Charging was on Android first, Stereo speakers came on Androids first, Tap to wake and Raise to wake came on Android first. Really only Face Recognition and having no headphone jack and Tax Evasions are one of Apple’s first innovation

Gotta say the design of the S9 trumps the iPhone X and its ugly notch though.

You can add a black or white bar on the top of that makes you happy. It's just a notch though, but it's like this design wise because you scroll down on the top right for control center.

As soon as shat customers stop encouraging amazing technology like Face ID for some dumb, childish no-value feature like Animated Emojis

Somehow we all knew that was gonna happen. I mean they both copy each other and outsource their parts. It makes sense to do it anyway because emojis are not exclusive to Apple anyone can do those Animojis.
