Another Sneak Peek of Samsung’s Alleged New UI
A little under two weeks ago, we caught a glimpse of a few leaked screenshot purported to be the face of the next generation of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. A marked departure from the incumbent Nature UX, the alleged new design features a flatter UI drawing many similarities to HTC’s highly acclaimed BlinkFeed.
Now, another set of leaked images has appeared, courtesy of leaker extraordinaire @evleaks. As seen in the previously leaked images, today’s leak also shows a sleek and flat design that is distinctly more modern than their current UI.
Unlike the previous shots, which showed three distinct types of screen (lock screen, information cards, and traditional home screen), the latest leaked images focus solely on Samsung’s take on Google Now-esque information cards. Similar to Google’s nearly telepathic virtual assistant, it appears as if Samsung’s next UI will detect what you are doing, predict what you want to do, and give you relevant information for both. It is perhaps likely that this can be seen as a direct result to the Google Now integration in the closed source Google Experience Launcher on the Nexus 5.
Naturally, it’s important to take these leaked images with a grain of salt. After all, we’ve all been proven wrong before when it comes to leaks. But if these are indeed shots of Samsung’s work-in-progress, it’s not hard to imagine many favoring the change. Are you a fan of the new look of the alleged screenshots? Are you looking forward to Google Now-esque integration in the next version of TouchWiz? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
