Based on the sources, the Galaxy S9 and its larger counterpart Galaxy S9+ will come pre-installed with a "3D Emoji" feature. The device will run on Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box and will have a 3000mAh battery reservoir to fire up the Galaxy S9. The 3D emoji will use 3D facial recognition software as well as iris recognition technology.
It's an interesting claim, because it sounds like Samsung's animated emoji will have a lot in common with Animoji. For those who haven't experienced this feature it, it basically takes your facial expressions and mirrors them onto an "emoji" character.
But the headline leaked detail is that the Galaxy S9 will finally feature dual speakers, one at the top and one at the bottom of the phone.
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. The fingerprint sensor will be found on the back of the Galaxy Note 9, the report says, as Samsung continues to study in-display sensor tech for future models. And while the Galaxy S9 unfolds slowly but surely, the Galaxy S8 sees its price fall, and go largely under the bar of € 550 to be a great good plan.
This year's Galaxy Note 8 was codenamed "Baikal" after one of Russia's biggest lakes, hinting at the smartphone's large 6.3in display, apparently.
Samsung has also stated that this particular pressure-sensor technology is compatible with LCD, LED and OLED display panels.
Besides seemingly confirming some of the new features of the Galaxy S9, ETNews reiterates that the upcoming handset will feature little design changes from the Galaxy S8. Sam Mobile is reporting that the speakers will even be tuned by AKG, which is owned by Samsung.
