While Several New emoji characters are set to hit your devices later this year, Samsung has already brought some fresh emojis through the Most Recent Android Oreo update.
The update, which comes with Samsung Expertise 9.0, carries a set of new emojis to ultimately populate the encounter with other emoji versions that you have seen on applications produced by Apple, Google, and Microsoft. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ recently obtained the new update via an OTA (over-the-air) release.
Samsung has redesigned a lot of emojis available within the Samsung Experience 9.0 release that have been in line with Emoji 5.0 standard that premiered in March last year, as seen by Emojipedia. It is reported that nearly all of the facial expressions have “undergone at least minor alterations” to give a fresh appearance on the existing Galaxy series apparatus. Additionally, the South Korean company is said to have added as many as 239 new emoji characters, including various new gender and skin tone variants. There are, for example, nine brand new facial emojis like a Star-Struck, Exploding Head, and Face With Symbols on Mouth. Likewise, the business has offered gender neutral emojis representing a young child, adult, and older adult alongside a bearded person, breastfeeding woman, and a lady with a headscarf.
If you’re looking for emojis other than human beings, Emoji 5.0 brought various fantasy creatures and objects such as Brain, Giraffe, and Sandwich. Further, when it comes to improvements, Emojipedia reports that emojis for example Grimacing Face and Tired Face are no more with their anime flair, while Face Savouring Food, Smirking Face, and Drooling Face are majorly changed to give more clarity on what message they are giving to recipients. Some other modifications on the board include a Yellowish Grinning Cat Face, Smiling Pile of Poo, Purple Coloured Imp Face, Reoriented Nail Polish with the nail paint in Purple color instead of the original Red paint, along with a Cheeky Ghost in a Playful Mood.
As of this moment, the Samsung Experience 9.0 release is limited to Galaxy S8 models in a small number of regions. We could, however, expect its wider rollout following the launch of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, which will be expected to take place at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. Both new flagship versions are very likely to come with the brand new experience out-of-the-box.
