Here are the apps that will come pre-installed on the Galaxy S6, does this look like super light Tou
Well, the official unveiling of the Galaxy S6 is almost here – with only a few days left to go, of course we can expect a few last-minute leaks. The guys from SamMobile, who are generally on-target with their Samsung-related leaks, have gotten a hold of a list of Samsung apps that will come pre-installed on the new flagship (flagships, actually, let's not forget the Galaxy S6 Edge) as part of the TouchWiz experience.

Now, Sammy allegedly plans to release a super-responsive UI with the S6, one that is on-par with the Nexus' vanilla Android experience, so, naturally, we'd expect them to have slimmed down the apps a bit.

So, here's the reported list:

  • S Voice
  • S Health
  • Facebook
  • WhatsApp (download link)
  • Microsoft One Drive
  • Microsoft One Note
  • Skype
  • All Google apps
  • Galaxy Apps

Well, the Microsoft apps are a surprise here, and many users who were hoping on less bloatware my find this contradictory, if not disappointing. Checking out the other ones – Skype is quite widely used and we're pretty sure very few users will have something against it being pre-installed on their handsets. On the flipside, we don't see apps such as the Gallery, music player, S Planner (Sammy's calendar). According to the report, users will still be able to install them from the Galaxy Apps store, otherwise, we assume, they will be able to replace the missing services by using the Google stock apps, which will, naturally, be present on the smartphone.
