Samsung has now somewhat confirmed that the next major update for its Galaxy S7/S7 edge will bring the new Samsung Experience UI for the smartphones.
Just to recall, these two Samsung smartphones were launched almost more than a year ago as Samsung's flagships with Android 6.0 and the company's TouchWiz UX. The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge have already been updated to Android 7.0 Nougat and both smartphones further received a newer version of TouchWiz known as Grace UX.
The interesting thing though is that when Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ and Note 8 were launched they came with a new UI while still running the Android Nougat OS. Samsung Galaxy S8 came with Samsung Experience version 8.1 but it was updated to version 8.5 when the South Korean giant launched the Galaxy Note 8 in the market.
However, Samsung smartphones like the Galaxy J5 and J7 (2016), as well as the 2017 Galaxy A series have already been updated to Samsung Experience 8.1. What's surprising is that Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones continue to run an older UI. The main reason for Samsung not rolling out a new update that would consist of only a new user interface would be to save its spend resources.
But that seems to be changing now. As per SamMobile, Samsung Experience will likely be released for the Galaxy S7/S7 edge along with the promised Android 8.0 Oreo update. Unfortunately, no specific time frame has been determined or given as to when the update will actually be released. Samsung is most probably going to finish rolling out updates for its latest flagships first.
In any case, we are just hoping that it shouldn't take long before Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones also get the latest version of Samsung's user interface.
