Galaxy S4 KitKat update nears, screenshot indicates revamped inteface
Screenshots from a Samsung GT-I9505 Galaxy S4 allegedly running the Android 4.4 KitKat update have leaked out, and they show a flatter TouchWiz Nature UX design. Some carriers already spilled the beans on Samsung's update plans, saying that Galaxy S4 will get the goods by the end of the month, and judging from the leaked screens, the rollout is nearing release indeed.

Samsung completely overhauled its interface for the new PRO line of tablets it announced this week, calling the new overlay Magazine UX, and it might be planning to do the same with the Galaxy S5 and its other phones this year, so a taste of this overhauled handset UI might come with the KitKat update of the Galaxy S4, too. There's also a screenshot of AnTuTu benchmarking results, showing the score achieved with the lean, mean KitKat-laden machine.
