Disney AR Emoji have launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+
Today marks the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, and with them comes AR Emoji – Samsung's take on 3D avatars. The feature works by scanning your face using the front-facing camera and then creating a 3D avatar based on your appearance. We have an article on how to use the AR Emoji feature so feel free to check it out for some tips.

But in case you want to try out something different, you can turn yourself into Mickey or Minnie Mouse! Thanks to a long-term deal between Samsung and Disney, you'll be able to make AR Emoji using some of the most iconic Disney characters, with familiar faces from "The Incredibles", "Zootopia", and "Frozen" expected to appear by the end of the year. If you don't have the emblematic mice at your disposal, you can download them from the AR Emoji mode in the camera app.

So, what you can do using the Disney characters? Well, not much, to be honest. Currently, you can take a video or a picture of the AR Emoji of your choice. For example, if you smile, Mickey or Minnie will smile as well, following all other facial expressions you make. However, the camera won't track any body movements, meaning you won't be able to wave as Mickey Mouse.

They look like 1980s cartoons. Lol I don’t get why come up with your own version of something that wasn’t even a hit for Apple. The Animoji is one of the fails from the X.

If anything Apples animoji is a fail because you can ONLY record up to ten seconds. Where as Samsung's AR emojis can record video which is unlimited in comparisons to Apples animojis.

Jesus, you're taking fanboyism to new extremes. Samsung blatantly copy Apple, something you always accuse Apple of, but it's a pretty crap "feature" at best, and you're saying it's a good thing that there's more of it? Baaaaaahhhhhh...

I don't care for either. However if you look at Apples and Samsung's versions. Clearly Samsung's does a lot more than Apples version, period. There is no denying it. Even you have to admit only 10 seconds of Animoji recording is stupid. Maybe Apple had to cut it off at that, because it might overheat the A11 SoC and it might throttle down with anything longer than that. Also jimrod you are a well know Apple zealot.

So what’s the excuse for Intelligent Scan not being secure enough for Samsung Pay?

I think it’s a pretty lame feature on any device, it shows they’re running out of ideas with what is basically a glorified Snapchat filter as a headline feature. It certainly wasn’t worth copying let alone trying to improve.

"Where as Samsung's AR emojis can record video which is unlimited in comparisons to Apples animojis." And what? Look like you had a stroke or something because it cant even track your facial recognition well? "Maybe Apple had to cut it off at that, because it might overheat the A11 SoC and it might throttle down with anything longer than that" Im not even hating on both OS but the level of stupidity on this one is hella strong. Smh. Bless your soul "I don't care for either. However if you look at Apples and Samsung's versions. Clearly Samsung's does a lot more than Apples version, period. There is no denying it. " Oh sweet child I wish you well.

Or we can even make a combo: "If you are still 5 years old, you are not an asshole and have friends." Not so sure about the middle part, but why not.

Actually quite fun to use. It's hilarious what you can do with it and sharing in virtually any medium is fantastic.
