Samsung‘s Galaxy Note7 launch was far from the perfect affair. The handset was supposed to be the company’s most refined flagship smartphone ever — and it definitely had the beans to do so — instead, all anyone can think of right now is the Note7’s exploding battery.

That is, of course, for good reason because you definitely wouldn’t want your smartphone to blow up in your pants. Well, now it seems that the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards is putting their foot down to make sure that the replacement Note7’s won’t suffer the same fate.

Grace UX coming to Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with Nougat update?

Samsung‘s TouchWiz is often something you either love or you hate. I personally hate it, but with every update, Samsung does seem to try and make it a little more bearable for me. Its latest iteration — also known as the Grace UX — on the Galaxy Note7 is by far the most tolerable version yet. What’s more it also brings a whole bunch of useful Always On Display functions which I loved.

Now, it looks like Samsung already have plans ready to bring Grace to their Galaxy S7 and S7 edge smartphones. The bad news? It looks like you might have to wait until an Android Nougat update to get it.

If you’ve been hoping that Google‘s upcoming Pixel smartphones — the Pixel and Pixel XL — would be water resistant like the Galaxy Note7, it looks like you’re out of luck because Android Police believe that the new duo from Google will have almost “no enhanced water resistance at all“.
