Samsung Galaxy S9 rumored to include 3D emoji and stereo speakers
Samsung Galaxy S9 details continue to leak out ahead of Samsung’s big February 25 event.
Two new Galaxy S9 features have been revealed in a report from ETNews. According to that publication, the Galaxy S9 will have a 3D emoji feature that will be “more advanced” that the iPhone X’s Animoji. With this feature, you can choose a 3D animal character that will follow the movements of your face and can be used in texts and instant messages.
It’s not surprising to hear that Samsung may be cooking up a 3D emoji feature. Not only did Animoji become popular in the months following the launch of the iPhone X, but the Galaxy S9 is expected to include its own facial recognition functionality, which would help enable Animoji-style 3D characters with face tracking.
Also rumored to be coming to the Galaxy S9 are stereo speakers. This report backs up a previous Galaxy S9 leak that said the device will have AKG stereo speakers.
