By affordable, we are comparing other superphones in the segment like Apple iPhone X, Google Pixel 2, etc. to name a few.

Samsung has certainly made considerable efforts to get its image back on track. Ever since the Note 7 controversy, a lot was expected from Samsung during the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ launch. It has added amazing features to both new phones.

One of the standout additions is the AR EMOJI feature.

With this feature, a user can create a three-dimensional EMOJI avatar of himself/herself using the smartphone camera. The best part about it is that it can be done using either the front or rear camera. This is not possible on Apple iPhone X’s ANIMOJI feature, where the user can only use the front facing camera to capture the face. AR stands for Augmented Reality, which is the principal technology behind the AR EMOJI feature.
