The Samsung Galaxy S9 may have stereo speakers and 3D emoji

But Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, which was rumored to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor as well, will apparently skip it.

Samsung tends to launch its S-series devices in the spring and its Note-series devices in the fall. The same sources said that it's not likely for the technology to be commercialized this year, but Samsung might do it next year. In an invite to media, the company displayed a large "9" with the caption, "The Camera".

As for its release, the Galaxy Note 9 could hit stores in early or mid-August of 2018, a little earlier than the August 23 launch of the Galaxy Note 8 in 2017. This latest rumor comes from Korean publication ETNews who claims Samsung is developing 3D Emoji for its latest model.

New Samsung trailers, leaks and speculations continue to paint a picture of Samsung's soon-to-be unveiled flagship phone, and it's looking more and more like a Galaxy S8 with better cameras and a few iPhone features. The name of Samsung's version of the feature is now unknown.

Improving the user experience and putting up a tougher battle against existing voice-controlled digital assistants, the Galaxy S9 duo will be powered by Bixby 2.0. While leaks have already made it very clear that the S9 will include a standard rear fingerprint scanner (in a new position, naturally), some rumours had hoped the Note 9 would include the coveted sub-screen biometrics. The smartphones will continue to feature a dedicated Bixby button.

The Galaxy Note 9 is also nearly guaranteed to feature a USB-C port at this point, considering both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 included the more modern charging configuration.
