It is an Android 8.0 Oreo based update that adds the AR Emoji feature to the Camera app. While the feature may not work as smoothly as it does in flagships, you’ll certainly find a good use of it to make emoji based on your own face.

they should put compass & gyro in J6 instead of these mysterious games , its a loser against xiaomi & huawei devices in this range that they had better features , hardware , sensors , dual rear camera & many other superiority


Hello, will this come to J5 and J7 of 2017? both devices already have Oreo 8.1, is there any chance?


Good news I suppose. But AR Emojis are for children. They should be concentrated on more important stuff.

The gist is Samsung bringing consistency with features across segments, something they could always have done but are probably just starting to fight the Chinese onslaught. After all, no reason to get a cheap Galaxy if it doesn’t have any of the nice features. 😛
