The German version is normally a few weeks after the English release. Please keep a check on the German website or forum for the release announcement.

The initial release is for the iPhone X only due to the camera requirements. However we will continue to evaluate other phones that have a compatible camera.

Hi danlcort7, you just said it yourself - you've got a Samsung grand prime, but only the iPhone X is supported initially.

Hi sjonesdc - Yes, the LIVE Face on an iPhone X will work with CTA 3.3 on an iMac.

I'm not an iClone user, so I don't know about that.  Within CTA it is possible, using the Collect Clip functionality, to Export Facial Motion and then reapply that to another character in CTA 3.3.  For example: 
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/f2ccbea5-e757-46e1-90ef-ea6f.gif      https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/471bbf45-3295-497c-bfb6-f7ea.gif

In Content Manager, the files are saved to Animation > Custom > Face.  If you can get LIVE Face motion into iClone, then I expect it would be via these files.  I've attached the file which was produced in the first image above (MOCAP facial export.ctFCS) and then applied to the second one for you to try this out in iClone yourself.  

If you want to install it first into CTA 3.3, drop the unzipped file into this path on your own machine: 
/Users/Shared/Reallusion/Custom/CrazyTalk Animator 3 Custom/Face/

Good luck!
