If you're not looking closely, it's easy to mistake last year's Galaxy S8 for the brand new Galaxy S9.
Design, build materials, screen size, software — it's all virtually identical, save for a few exceptions. Apple's Animoji on the i Phone X might allow you to use your own facial movements to control your favorite emoji, but Samsung is looking to make you the focus of the interactive icon with the introduction of AR Emoji.
Those who preorder the device on March 2 or pick it up on March 16 can expect these changes out of the box, as the S9 will be running Samsung Experience 9.0 on day one.
The idea of translating in real-time has become quite popular recently, with Google's Pixel Buds integrating the feature. Until recently, you needed to download a frequently-unreliable third party app to translate text using your camera — but that all changes with the Galaxy S9 and Bixby Vision.

Samsung and Apple are the two titans of the mobile phone industry.
