    Brilliant question. Why not ask the author of the article, maybe he has a crystal ball he can gaze into or better yet you could follow the links he was kind enough to provide.
    It's not the device that gets them it's apps like WhatsApp etc. that use them so when those get updated on your device, expect to see them although I suspect it won't be anytime soon.
