Samsung Galaxy S9 To Feature Stereo Speakers And 3D Emoji

Samsung Galaxy S9 To Feature Stereo Speakers And 3D Emoji

Then, it was speculated that Galaxy S9 would be Samsung's first phone to have an in-display sensor.

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.

What Samsung's version of Animoji will be called is unclear at this time, but the report claims that the S9's implementation will be "more advanced" than Apple's. The speaker placement was one of the main bugbears of the Galaxy S8 and Note 8, with users finding that it was too easy to cover up the speaker when playing games or watching videos. For those who haven't experienced this feature it, it basically takes your facial expressions and mirrors them onto an "emoji" character. It'll be interesting to see if Samsung actually does launch an animated emoji feature of its own and, if it does, how it differentiates it from what Apple is doing with Animoji. Design schematics suggest the charger will resemble the previous variant, with a fan vent and USB Type-C port on the back, and a charging coil, indicator lights, and phone stand on the front.

While it's still in the rumor state for now, ETNews' claims that the upcoming flagship will sport dual speakers falls in line with a recent report from SamMobile. The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends.

The publication also said Samsung hasn't entirely given up on the under-display fingerprint sensor technology. There's also no guarantee that Samsung will introduce this feature when they unveil the S9 on February 25th.

But as a smartphone package, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is one of the best in the market - you won't regret your choice if you pick up this phone. This pressure sensor may be just like the 3D Touch technology that is being used by Apple for its flagship iPhone devices. Unfortunately, it looks like the Bixby button will also make its comeback.
