Android 5.1 update rumored to bring new version of TouchWiz to Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (UPDATE)
With much of the bloatware removed on the new version of TouchWiz, the result is a lighter skin that runs faster. Samsung says that the new UI is 40% lighter than the prior version. And according to a source who has knowledge of Samsung's plans, the company was inspired more by its own Tizen OS than by Android when developing the latest TouchWiz build.
TouchWiz remains bright and colorful. But despite the changes made to the icons, many will still find them to be cartoonish, a criticism about TouchWiz that will not go away even with this new iteration. Overall, the new TouchWiz is bound to be considered a big step in the right direction. It certainly would be a positive for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 users if this rumor does pan out.
Thanks for the tip!
