Samsung Experience 9.0 update brings better-looking emoji

Samsung will likely confirm all these leaks, and possibly even demo the above features, on 25 February, when it unveils both phones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Until now it has been placed at the side of the Galaxy camera, often resulting in people smudging their lens, whereas now, the S9 will have the fingerprint reader below the camera. And, the so-called 3D Emoji by Samsung should be the same feature but could be more advanced and prevailing than the Animoji's.

The phone is also expected to feature an improved camera while some analysts believe the Galaxy Note 9 will feature the upcoming Snapdragon 845 CPU, at least in some regions.

In early January Patently Apple posted a report titled "Samsung reveals that their new Galaxy S9 Processor will Deliver Apple-Like Face ID and Neural Network Features".

Since Apple beat manufacturers to the implementation of 3D emojis, it seems that the competition is now hurrying to create (or even copy) a version for new devices, and it could be that Samsung will boast that their version is better still than Apple's. Exactly what they will call this feature is still unknown. 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.

Another feature that was mentioned in the report was the inclusion of a set of new dual stereo speakers. Users felt that, while watching videos, their hands would cover the speaker and mask the sound. Since then, Synaptics announced that its own solution to place a fingerprint sensor under the screen is available for mass consumption, and a Chinese smartphone maker has already launched a device with the sensor under its screen. Unfortunately, it looks like the Bixby button will also make its comeback. The Bell also reported that Samsung is still studying the on-screen fingerprint scanners so there's a silver lining.
