AR Emoji, or Augmented Reality Emoji, allows the Galaxy S9 user to click selfies and transform them into custom emojis. It mimics the user’s facial expressions too. This is a direct comparison to Animoji launched by Apple for iPhone X, however, the big difference is that with Samsung the user is making an emoji of themselves.
How is the Samsung Galaxy S9 Better than the predecessors?
When it comes to the looks, the S9 is not significantly different from the S8. However, the upgrades and features are remarkably improved. The main competition for Samsung is however not it’s own older models but other smartphone brands, especially Apple and Huawei. To rise above the competition, Samsung had initiated a trade-in program that allows users to sell their old Samsung devices in exchange for money to enhance an expensive phone buying experience for them.
Will the Galaxy S9 rule the markets and affect the sales and popularity of the Apple iPhone X? Market sales for the Samsung Galaxy S9 start in March. Let’s wait and watch.
