Samsung set to launch new flagship smartphones

  Samsung set to launch new flagship smartphones Samsung Electronics will unveil its next flagship smartphones -- the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ -- on Sunday, after it reported record profits in recent weeks and its vice chairman was released from prison. Samsung, the flagship subsidiary of South Korea's biggest business group, suffered a humiliating recall of its Galaxy Note 7 device in 2016, and was then embroiled in the sprawling corruption scandal that brought down ousted president Park Guen-hye.But its Galaxy S8 smartphone was a consumer and critical success and financially it has gone from strength to strength.

The Samsung Galaxy S 9 will reportedly have 3 D emoji and stereo speakers . Samsung ’ s 3 D emoji are reportedly "more advanced" than the iPhone X’s Animoji.

Unfortunately, it looks like the Bixby button will also make its comeback. The Samsung Galaxy S 9 will reportedly arrive with dual stereo speakers and a 3 D emoji feature that copies Apple' s Animoji.

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.

Samsung debuting a feature like this makes sense given that earlier this year the company also revealed its new Exynos chip, which it says has “realistic face-tracking filters” and stronger security for unlocking devices through facial recognition. Samsung isn’t the first to lift an Animoji-like feature from Apple, Honor has its own take too.

Samsung finally fixed its terrible emoji in Android Oreo

  Samsung finally fixed its terrible emoji in Android Oreo 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.

The Samsung Galaxy S 9 is currently being tested by Korean mobile networks and accessory companies ahead of its release. This has led to some leaks on upcoming features. These include 3 D emojis , a new speaker setup, and the return of the Bixby button.

ETNews today reports that Samsung ’ s upcoming flagship, for one, is going to be packing stereo speakers . Samsung ’ s 3 D Emojis , which will pick up an actual name at the launch event, are It’s unclear exactly what is meant by that, but Samsung ’ s implementation will reportedly have sharing

On top of the 3D emoji feature, the S9 will also reportedly have stereo speakers. ETNews says the speakers will be located at the top and bottom of the phone. A previous story from SamMobile claimed the S9 and S9 Plus speakers will feature Dolby Surround tuned by acoustics company AKG, which is owned by Samsung.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be unveiled on February 25th at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Previous leaks and product teases have shown a redesigned fingerprint scanner that sits below the camera, camera improvements, a new Samsung DeX Pad, and the beloved headphone jack.

According to ETNews, the Galaxy S9 may cost between 925,000 and 1 million won (between $853 and $923), which is significantly more than the Galaxy S8, which had a starting price of $720.

Samsung's dual camera 'bokeh' tricks are coming to budget phones .
Dual-camera smartphones with improved low-light photos and fancy, defocused "bokeh" behind subjects are pretty new and until now, have been reserved for high-end smartphones. Isocell Dual tech can be set up in a couple of different configurations, either for one feature or the other. For low-light shooting (LLS), Samsung marries its algorithms with a set of two 8-megapixel sensors, and for bokeh, uses a 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel image sensor set. According to an presentation last year, the modules can also enable optical smartphone zooming, but Samsung might be keeping that trick for its own smartphones.
