A smoother Samsung Experience for the Galaxy Note 8 is on the way

High-end specifications and a tweaked design are guaranteed, but there’s little known about software improvements for the Galaxy Note 8.

A report published by SamMobile reveals the focus for the next version of the Samsung Experience is on animations as well as iris and face recognition. Well, that doesn’t tell us all too much to be honest. These are areas that, without seeing this report, we would’ve assumed Samsung planned on optimizing anyway.

It’ll be Samsung Experience 8.5 with Android 7.0 Nougat shipping on the Galaxy Note 8.

The Samsung Experience, which took over for TouchWiz, became the company’s custom software overlay for Android with the Galaxy S8 earlier this year. Its completely redesigned from the predecessor, presenting modern and colorful graphics throughout. Since the Galaxy Note 8 is coming after the Galaxy S8, it benefits from bug fixes and additional enhancements.

Samsung’s Unpacked event is scheduled for August 23, and Talk Android will be there live in New York City for full coverage throughout the day.
