Samsung's Galaxy S9 will reportedly include stereo speakers and 3D emoji

Samsung's Galaxy S9 will reportedly include stereo speakers and 3D emoji

The rumor claims that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are going to come with dual Dolby Surround speakers tuned by AKG thus finally bringing stereo speakers to the Galaxy S family. Chinese vendor Vivo has already unveiled the Vivo X20 Plus UD with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Korean company was testing in-display fingerprint sensors from a number of sensor suppliers, but it has chose to delay the commercialization due to "technical difficulties".

Samsung has been working hard on Android Oreo for several Galaxy phones. Thanks to a report by Korean outlet ETNews, we potentially know a little bit more about a certain software feature that Samsung is preparing.

According to a report by Mobile Syrup, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 may have the fingerprint sensor placed at the back panel of the device, under the rear camera and not under the display as rumoured earlier. A lot of companies have their own unique art style when it comes to emojis, and Samsung is one of them that tended to abuse this trend.


However, it seems certain those snapping up the new Galaxy S9 range this spring will receive it as standard. The publication claims that Samsung's 3D emoji are more advanced than the iPhone X's animoji. In this case, there would be a bottom-firing speaker and another built into the earpiece. After aligning your face with the selected emoji, you will then see that the icon will mimic your movements.

Samsung is reportedly gearing up to start a pilot production run of the Galaxy Note 9 in the first quarter of 2018. When an optical sensor is employed it takes a toll on the accuracy of the sensor.

The report states that a number of sensor companies have been supplying Samsung with in-display fingerprint sensors, but commercialization has been delayed due to "technical difficulties". However, it's more expensive to make, and yields are lower than they need to be for a phone as popular as the iPhone.
