While the AR Emoji offering on the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ appears to have been inspired by Apple’s Animoji feature, Samsung is refuting this allegation. The South Korean company even took a dig at Apple during the Galaxy S9 launch on Sunday by mentioning why it didn’t favour a notch or the absence of a fingerprint sensor that both helped to make the iPhone X popular and a distinctive smartphone model.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh stated that the AR Emoji on the Galaxy S9 series wasn’t an idea copied from Apple, and he had personally looked into animated 3D emoji characters sometime way back in 2001 for flip phones.
