Like Animoji, 3D emoji will also let users have fun making amusing faces with animal characters. The report also reiterates other Galaxy S9 rumors, like its variable aperture function and better facial recognition and iris scanning. Korean publication ETNews reports (translated) that the Galaxy S9 will be the company's first smartphone to come with stereo speakers, which should translate to a superior audio experience.
Samsung has a good habit of copying a lot of features from Apple for its Galaxy S phones, and it appears that it will do the same with Apple's Animoji feature.
However, it seems certain those snapping up the new Galaxy S9 range this spring will receive it as standard.
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 are many options available for Samsung, including ultra-sound sensors, but they are either expensive or not durable enough to be used in a flagship smartphone.

The leak claims the Galaxy S9 will have the ability to make 3D emoticons using the front-facing camera. The feature works by scanning your face and creating a 3D character that mimics your fine-tuned facial movements and expressions, says the report.
Patents revealed earlier this week confirmed that Samsung is developing in-screen, or optical, fingerprint scanner.
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.
We already know that it will tout a souped-up processor - likely Samsung's own Exynos 9810 chipset, or Qualcomm's powerful Snapdragon 845 (also built by Samsung).
