The Galaxy S9 will apparently arrive with what's being called "3D emoji".
Since Apple beat manufacturers to the implementation of 3D emojis, it seems that the competition is now hurrying to create (or even copy) a version for new devices, and it could be that Samsung will boast that their version is better still than Apple's.More news: [Updated] Gupta family member arrested as S.African police probe influence peddling
In total, Samsung phones running Experience 9.0 are also getting 239 brand new emoji, featuring those rolled out last March in Unicode 5.0.
Additionally, users will also receive the new Dual Messenger feature that allows them to run two identical instant messaging app at the same time. Leaks in November showed that the Galaxy S9 will not be carrying the feature.
This appears to match a recent story from SamMobile - citing "unconfirmed claims", the website said the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus would feature stereo speakers with Dolby Surround and tuned by AKG, the audio brand owned by Samsung.
Judging by the visuals, it seems the Galaxy S9 Plus will retain the slim bezels on the top and bottom of the screen from the S8. However, this doesn't mean that Samsung will ditch the fingerprint scanner. Unfortunately, it looks like the Bixby button will also make its comeback.
