Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus devices will be the first to feature 3D emoji and stereo speakers, according to Korean publication ETNews.

ETNews reports that Samsung’s 3D emoji are more advanced than Apple’s Animoji on the iPhone X, but are similar in terms of resembling a 3D character that tracks the facial movements of the user and mimics them. The 3D emoji reportedly include animal characters that can be shared with friends. The news was spotted by Android Authority.

Samsung debuting a feature like this makes sense given that earlier this year the company also revealed its new Exynos chip, which it says has “realistic face-tracking filters” and stronger security for unlocking devices through facial recognition. Samsung isn’t the first to lift an Animoji-like feature from Apple, Honor has its own take too.
