Samsung's patent suggests that Emoji ARs could be used in video calls


A couple of months the arrival of Samsung's Augmented Reality Emoji function was announced, a very important feature during the presentation of the company's most recent terminals.



In particular, this function is responsible for capturing our face and creating a 3D emoji that copies our gestures in real time. Everything seems to indicate that Samsung is thinking about new uses for this technology.

As demonstrated by a patent granted to Samsung, the company seems to want to use the Emojis ARs to alleviate Internet connection problems during video calls. We talk about all those occasions in which the quality of the video call is reduced or even cuts occur due to the loss of speed. Specifically, the goal of Samsung is to show our avatar in 3D in this type of situation.

You can check all the details of the patent in this link, where Samsung explains that the current video communication systems require a large bandwidth to work because they have to generate and compress sequences of complete images before being sent to the other device. , which can lead to inadequate performance many times.

One of the strengths of the system is that it would not be limited to showing our Emoji AR, but that avatar would show our gestures, facial expressions and movements in real time while the quality of the Internet connection improves. Of course, it is important to bear in mind that today it is only a patent, so we will have to wait to see if it ends up materializing in a real function.
