They put it in a phone. That's the invention.
Samsung S10 Will copy the notch, it won't do anything, it will just be there.
The Animoji “feature” is about the only thing they can copy. However I somehow think Samsung users will be buying an S9 on that basis somehow. Gimmicks are just that.
EXACTLY! (the same one's Samsung's been using on its Galaxy S phones for a few years now)
HAHAHA, you can not be serious....
It’s not missing, you’re choosing not to see it because they no longer have a master salesman presenting new products.
Remember, FaceTime was introduced as Apple inventing video calling. If Apple introduced it now, no one would swallow this - everyone would say they were just baking Skype into the Phone app!
You’re right about there being no brand new inventions. But, in a world full of ideas, Samsung seems to implement an idea just as Apple has made it a flagship feature. Their reason for settling on an existing idea seems to be because Apple has chosen it. Apple’s reason for settling on an idea is because it makes sense for a product.
Wouldn't expect anything less!
That's what's called true innovation these days! Can't wait for Google revolutionize it by copying it yet again for Pixel 3 XXL!
Wow. Did that really need to be copied? Besides, the animations will have to be sent as low-quality video or gifs over SMS, I presume since Android phones don't use iMessage.
Glad to be a Nexus/Pixel buyer. But watch Google go and add this feature later this year.
Regardless of all the ‘Who is copying who’, I think it’s to demonstrate how technology is changing with the Cameras and how facial mapping is expanding with technology like this. I don’t really blame Samsung for having something similar, when it at least shows they can offer something similar in their product line and keep it competitive between smart phone manufacturers.
My point was that Apple paid to use it. And Apple was granted a patent, so unless Samsung paid Apple, they’re illegally copying a feature.
The majority of iPhone device users can't do this anyway because it requires a notched device. Apple didn't think about opening this feature up to their large installed base by using the camera. We're certainly not going to buy a new phone just to do this one trick.
Monkey see, monkey do
And meanwhile we're still stuck with 1970s battery tech...
I kind of wonder why Samsung would bother investing in a tech only used by 13 year old girls.
To the surprise of no one.
Wasn't the lawsuit over just the name though?
It is way funnier to see how Samsung is even copying the event invitations now.
Their whole marketing has even changed to come across more Apple-esque.
anyone use animoji beyond november 2017?
Probably not. Heck, it sure has never been a deterrent for Apple.
Doesn’t surprise me, they will probably try and copy Face ID at some point as well. The same pattern will happen during the keynote one of their cringe worthy presenters will say something bashing Apple while introducing the S9 only for Apple to come out in September and release a better phone that sells and is much more popular. Its s been happening for years the same pattern every year.
If Apple didn't patent it, it means someone invented it before Apple. Apple just copied those filters from Instagram
Galaxy S9 Plus will reportedly copy one of the iPhone X's most popular features "among thirteen year-old girls" ... there, I fixed it for ya.
