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!

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
