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

  Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will reportedly include stereo speakers and 3D emoji Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices will be the first to feature 3D emoji and stereo speakers, according to Korean publication ETNews.ETNews reports that Samsung’s 3D emoji are more advanced than Apple’s Animoji on the iPhone X, but are similar in terms of resembling a 3D character that tracks the facial movements of the user and mimics them. The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends. The news was spotted by Android Authority.

Unfortunately, its emoji have continued to be terrible , often expressing radically different emotions than those of other brands. Thankfully, Samsung is finally doing something about that as it rolls out Android Oreo to its suite of flagships.

However, that’s set to change now that the company is rolling out Android Oreo to its phones. The updated emoji library (from Samsung Experience 8.5 to Samsung Experience 9.0) now has emoji that are more in line with other operating systems emoji sets

  Samsung finally fixed its terrible emoji in Android Oreo © Provided by The Next Web Samsung has made great strides to fix its custom Android UI over the past few years, going from the bloated and ugly TouchWiz to the less-bloated and sleek Samsung Experience. Unfortunately, its emoji have continued to be terrible, often expressing radically different emotions than those of other brands. Thankfully, Samsung is finally doing something about that as it rolls out Android Oreo to its suite of flagships.

As first reported by Emojipedia, the Oreo update includes Samsung Experience 9.0, which brings redesigned the redesigned emoji in addition to a host of new features. Although the overall aesthetic of the emoji hasn’t changed – I much prefer Google’s stock emoji – Samsung is trying to at least make its emoji convey the same emotions as everyone else.

Google Fixes Burger Emoji in Latest Android Update. Samsung is releasing Experience 9.0 as part of its ongoing rollout of the Android Oreo update, and with it will come revamped emoji specifically for the Galaxy S8.

One of the worst offenders was the rolling-eyes emoji. On previous Samsung phones, it looks all-around jolly, instead of the sarcastic (or mildly creepy) look on virtually every other device. As Jeremy Burge of Emojipedia once pointed out, if you try sending this message on a Samsung device…

The new emoji  looks a lot more like everyone else’s, so you’d probably know not to use it in the above scenario:

The update also includes the new characters introduced with the Emoji 5.0 standard back in May of 2017. It’ll be a while before Samsung catches up to the new 2018 list – which probably won’t show up until the second half of the year – but at least the older emoji actually make sense now.
