Samsung to Copy Apple’s Animoji with Galaxy S9
We’re only a few days away from the moment Samsung will finally take the wraps off the new Galaxy S9, and new information emerges through unofficial channels, including tidbits that could make Apple fanboys smile.
As it turns out, Samsung wants to copy Apple’s Animoji feature available exclusively on the iPhone X with 3D emoji that would be powered by the front-facing camera.
While it’s not exactly clear how this feature is going to work since Samsung is believed to be relying only on the selfie camera, Apple’s more complex system uses the Face ID system to accurately reproduce face gestures.
Apps using the front-facing cameras and creating 3D emoticons have been available for a while, but it’s believed Samsung wants to offer a more advanced version.
