AR Emoji, Samsung’s answer to the iPhone X’s Animoji and Memoji is about to get even more fun and more customisable. The latest update also introduces improved facial tracking.

The latest software update adds a raft of fun customisation options that will make it easier for your AR Emoji to capture your individuality.

After you’ve snapped a selfie to generate your AR Emoji, you’ll be able to easily make detailed adjustments to your hair, ears and facial features. You can make it scarily resemble the real you, or a complete fictional character. The choice is yours!

The new My Emoji Editor function offers tools to fine-tune features like eyes, nose, lips, cheeks and other facial features.

Samsung said the update also enhances AR Emoji’s face-tracking function with a marked 65 percent increase in “landmark detector” points. This ensures features such as the eyes and mouth are tracked more precisely.

The update also gives frame rates a boost, so your AR Emoji will be able to mimic your mannerisms more naturally and smoothly.

At press time, no update has been pushed to users in Malaysia, just yet.

Samsung first introduced the AR Emoji with the flagship Galaxy S9 series. It’s a fun (and somewhat scary) way of turning your selfies into avatars.
