With the launch of Apple iPhone X a new and interactive way to present emotions in form of emojis was available to the users and it is called Animoji. Later, Android devices started the trend of making their own Animoji ripoff. Samsung launched its first Animoji type feature called ‘AR Emoji’ with Samsung S9, this feature lets the user to create their virtual Avatar using a lot of settings available to them. You can easily change anything with the number of settings even a small detail of the avatar. The Animoji or AR Emoji works in similar way.

Being inbuilt the stock camera application it captures the face so accurately and the Animoji is also very much editable meaning it has a lot of moving parts like eyes, eyebrows, eyelids, smile and some of them also shows tongue. People like this feature very much and it is also taking the place of the standard emoji, but it is only available to the Apple and Samsung devices. Nokia also started making its Android devices and there camera application is also very advance then other brands with PRO mode and PiP camera mode (which let the you use both camera front and back at a same time). The new update of the Nokia camera app included Animoji type of face tracking stuff.
