"Nothing is more important than how emojis are replacing words", he said. Here's what to expect.
The camera in both the devices has this time seen a change.

The new AR Emoji feature scans a user's selfie and maps 100 features to create an animated emoji of their face which can then be shared in messages.
Samsung lets users create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts like them. The two phones come with a new feature that Big Sam is referring to as "Dual Aperture", which is to say, the device is able to shoot images between two apertures of f/2.4 and f/1.5 using one lens. The S9 can unlock with facial recognition, but it isn't as secure as Apple's Face ID. On the back, Samsung has finally moved the fingerprint scanner to the bottom of the camera so you'll no longer have trouble finding the scanner everytime you want to unlock it.
There's a 3000mAh battery unit on the S9 whereas the top variant gets 3500mAh of battery. Unfortunately, the design of the device is still the same but we do have a change in the fingerprint sensor position.
