Galaxy S9 could mimic iPhone X's Animoji

While Apple supposedly gave up on including a more discreet version of TouchID in the iPhone X, there have sill been rumours that Samsung had something up its sleeve.

Samsung Galaxy S9's 3D emoji will mimic Apple's Animoji.

Alongside Samsung Experience 9.0, the new update brings together quite a number of improvement and new feature for both devices.

ETNews seems to suggest that there will be more to the Galaxy S9 Animoji feature, as it states that the 3D Emoji feature will be more advanced than the iPhone X's Animojis.

This appears to match a recent story from SamMobile - citing "unconfirmed claims", the website said the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus would feature stereo speakers with Dolby Surround and tuned by AKG, the audio brand owned by Samsung.

This year's Galaxy Note 8 was codenamed "Baikal" after one of Russia's biggest lakes, hinting at the smartphone's large 6.3in display, apparently.

THE GALAXY NOTE 9 won't be the first Samsung smartphone to pack an in-screen fingerprint scanner, according to reports. For that to achieve Samsung might be even ready to pull one of its born-rival, Apple's - Animoji inspired emoticons.

We recently wrote about some intellectual property documents that showed the possibility of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 having an in-display fingerprint sensor. The report says the flagship phone would feature stereo speakers at the top and bottom of the device. The speculation was short-lived, though, as we have known since November that the phone will not have an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S9 at on February 25.

In preparation for its official announcement, the Galaxy S9 is currently going through quality tests conducted by mobile telecom companies, while accessory makers now have access to the device's mockups. The report also reiterates other Galaxy S9 rumors, like its variable aperture function and better facial recognition and iris scanning.
