UPDATE: The old version of Samsung AR Emoji lacked Brown skin tone; the UX team fixed the issue with its update

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Samsung AR Emoji

Emojis used in almost every OS has been updated to include the skin tones of different people so that it is not only limited to the Caucasian color. Every other emojis are now available in different skin tones. It has been expanded to become more inclusive.

Users also have the playground to create emojis which look just like them to make chatting more playful. However, recently a Samsung user has complained about the official Samsung forum that the AR Emoji by Samsung has done away with brown skin tones.

The user stumbled upon this discovery when he himself tried to make an AR Emoji of himself. Even though his system has been updated, he himself had to make an emoji for himself, and the skin tone that was offered by the system was first dark purple in color, and the second one was beige. What may strike as odd here is the fact that there are no brown skin tone colors.

The colors offered right now by AR Emoji are beige, yellow, red, pink, pinkish-brown, orange, purple, purple-ish black, black, green, blue, magenta, violet. The user vented about this color discrimination and mocked that any color darker than tan is purple.

However, this was not the case always. Samsung did offer various skin tones and also brown albeit a limited series of brown, but the update, it seems, has abolished all the other normal skin tones, and replaced them with weird-looking purple skin tones.

The start screen does come with a brown-skinned person but that shade of brown appears weird-looking. He finally made a scathing criticism saying, “Unless you are beige, really really dark brown/black (and no one is completely black only dark brown) or any of those other odd, non-human colors or interested in a fantasy character you can’t truly make a My Emoji.”

UPDATE: The UX design team at Samsung has updated the AR Emoji, and the latest version is inclusive of all skin tones. The UX team tries to base user interface interaction on the way we interact with our reality. Keeping this in mind, some aspects of the second version of the AR Emoji seemed unfit and unnatural; thereby, the design team worked out the kinks, and the third and the latest version was released. This article was based on what some of the users experienced regarding the AR Emoji of the second version.
