Samsung Galaxy S9 can copy the Animojis; new Android will support screen cropping like iPhone X

Even in the face of failures in its operating systems, complaints here or there, Apple remains one of the most talked-about companies in the technology world we want or not.

When the cutout on the top of the iPhone X appeared, the excitement was great and most people criticized it. Over time, perhaps because they got used to the news, the nerves calmed down.

However, even with complaints, the “interruptions” on the screen that were previously unthinkable today seem normal and, according to Bloomberg, the next version of Android will be 100% compatible with these types of clippings.

The “Android P” (internally called Pistachio Ice Cream), which should arrive by the end of this year, natively support such cutouts in order to "persuade iPhone users to migrate to Android devices," as some sources have suggested. In addition, Google would be betting that the look of the iPhone X is here to stay and even be replicated by some companies.

For now, the only "relevant" smartphone in the competition with an on-screen cutout is Essential Phone (from the creator of Android), but it seems that Huawei is working on a device with some kind of on-screen cutout, as is Motorola, whose next device (Moto X5) apparently resembles the screen design of the iPhone X (see below the leaked photo, but not confirmed).

The publication also stated that the new Android also supports other types of clippings, multiple displays and even folding screens. As Google controls the operating system, the Mountain View giant's partner manufacturers will be able to tailor the software to their needs, thus shaping the system into devices with or without it. notch.

There was also negative talk about the usefulness of Animojis, which Apple brought in as a way of demonstrating the capabilities of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera. In the end, the pets really did win a lot of people.

Perhaps it has achieved so much that other companies have kept an eye on it. First, we learned that Huawei's new submarine device, the Honor V10, brought a similar bet, but right to the tracking of the user's language. Now from what the Korean site told ETNews, Samsung will get in the same wave!

The Samsung Galaxy S9, which is likely to be released by the end of this month, will also come with some animated 3D faces that will mimic users' facial expressions.

The publication said there will be several characters, including animals, and the technology will be "more advanced" than Apple uses. The device, even though it has not been released, has already had its details including images released: it also has a narrow speaker system (as in iPhones), but is cheaper than the smartphone flagship Apple, costing $ 850 in the United States.
