There’s one iPhone X feature the Galaxy S9 will reportedly steal, and you’re going to love it

The Galaxy S9 is supposed to be a mild update compared to its predecessors, a variety of reports claim. The handset will keep the Galaxy S8 design in place, and Samsung will focus on innovative software features to make the Galaxy S9 stand out. That’s what one report said. A different source learned that the Galaxy S9+ will be the better version of the two upcoming Samsung flagships, with Samsung ready to copy a page from Apple’s iPhone 7 playbook. Samsung, however, can’t copy the iPhone fast enough, and some features, like 3D face recognition, might not be there.

A new report now says there is an iPhone X feature that Galaxy S9 will be able to steal, and it’s all good news.

First of these is Apple iPhone X’s facial recognition feature, FaceID. Samsung already has facial recoginition and iris-scanning in its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones. However, it is not as advanced as FaceID in iPhone X. Samsung is widely said to be working on a similar technology for its next flagship phones.
Another feature is stero speakers. Samsung is expected to finally bring these in Galaxy S9 smartphones. Speculations suggest that the company will have one speaker at the top of the smartphone, near the traditional position of earpiece. The other may be next to the USB-C and auxillary ports, at bottom. Rumours claim that the layout too will be similar. Apple introduced stereo speakers in 2016 with iPhone 7.

Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphones are also likely to have the Apple iPhone X’s most-talked about feature, Animojis. The ‘much-loved’ 3D emojis are also shown in an official teaser of the smartphone that has surfaced on the internet.

These emojis track user’s facial movements and mirrors them in 3D.


As for display sizes, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are rumored to feature 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch screens, respectively, just like their predecessors.
