Galaxy S9 could mimic iPhone X's Animoji

It will also feature dual stereo speakers on the top and bottom of the phone, according to the report. Chinese vendor Vivo has already unveiled the Vivo X20 Plus UD with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This also brings their latest Samsung Experience 9.0 which brings a couple of new UI improvements. The report states a number of companies have been supplying the tech but the plug was pulled recently due to technical difficulties and the Note 9 will have the sensor placed at the rear of the device too.

While the majority of flagship smartphones perform well in standard conditions, for long distance photography, they are physically limited. Samsung is said to keep the fingerprint scanner on the back of the devices to accommodate the 18:9:5 aspect ratio. Now that they're copying Apple's iPhone X hardware, a Korean report reveals today that Samsung will also be copying Apple's software by introducing their version of Animoji called '3D Emoji'. Facial expressions were one of Samsung's biggest issues with emoji, as some like the "grimacing face" looked nothing like the same emoji from the likes of Google, Apple, and others. Samsung has been looking at two different in-display fingerprint scanning solutions that would deliver a reliable user experience, including optical, capacitive, and ultrasound sensors.

The only negative leak to come out of the Galaxy S9 is the launch price, which will reportedly be about $130 (£94) extra for the base model.

Even when the update does become available it's likely that those who took part in the beta will get it first with Galaxy S8 owners who purchased devices directly from Samsung getting Oreo soon after. Some sources in the industry claim that the accuracy and durability of such (under display) sensors are both lower compared to a traditional unit.

Samsung has delayed a lot in releasing this stable Android Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 phones. But they are far more expensive and are slower than traditional sensors in recognizing fingerprints.
