Galaxy Note 9 Won't Have Coolest Feature of the Year

We have reported most of the upcoming specifications, features, and accessories that are expected to arrive with Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone range. The feature works by scanning your face and creating a 3D character that mimics your fine-tuned facial movements and expressions, says the report.

The new Samsung Experience 9.0, rolling out alongside Oreo, introduces an updated emoji library, which improves upon the design of some and eases confusion when it comes to others. Samsung has also replaced its gun emoji with a water gun.

Samsung has a good habit of copying a lot of features from Apple for its Galaxy S phones, and it appears that it will do the same with Apple's Animoji feature.

According to the report, the project that was supposed to bring the under-display fingerprint technology to the Galaxy Note 8 successor was recently stopped due to technical difficulties.

The ETNews report also claims that the Galaxy S9 may be getting top and bottom stereo speakers.

There has been some circumstantial evidence to support this theory as well but Samsung has given no hints so far about stereo speakers for the Galaxy S9.

However, a new rumor suggests that the Samsung might have dropped the plan of adding the new feature on the Galaxy Note 9 and will go ahead with a rear panel-housed fingerprint sensor. At the moment, it is not clear how Samsung's version will be better than Apple's Animoji.

Currently, there is only one officially announced handset that features a fingerprint sensor under the display - the Vivo X20 Plus UD.

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. It's unclear exactly what that means, but Samsung's implementation will reportedly have sharing capabilities, presumably to other users whether they are using an S9 or not. The phone will be unveiled on the 25th of February at MWC 2018.
