Samsung introduces 18 new AR Emoji sticker expressions doubling the total to 36

Samsung today, announced it is adding 18 new stickers to the AR Emoji feature available on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+. The update to the camera app, which contains the new stickers, is found in the Galaxy Apps Store under the "My apps" section. With the new stickers, the number of sticker expressions available to AR Emoji users doubles from 18 to 36. Another 18 will be added in the coming months. We might have forgotten all the math we learned at school, but that should mean that 54 stickers will be available by later this year.

The stickers automatically appear when an AR Emoji is created. And that happens in the camera app when you select "AR Emoji mode" and tap on "Create My Emoji." The phone does all off the heavy lifting including the creation of the AR Emoji (which can be tweaked by you), and the creation of the stickers. The stickers can be added into a message directly from the handset's QWERTY keyboard, or by using 'copy and paste' to place them into a message.

And while no one can accuse Samsung of running a Mickey Mouse operation, the feature also allows users to create AR Emoji of certain Disney characters. Last week, Samsung added The Incredibles to a list that currently includes Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and Donald Duck.
