Here's what the new Samsung TouchWiz UI might look like
posted by Nick T. / Feb 11, 2014, 3:56 AM
Word on the street has it that Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event will be modest in contrast with the fanfare we witnessed last year. This doesn't mean, however, that the show would not be worth watching. After all, that's when Samsung is expected to announce its Galaxy S5 smartphone, along with the new and improved TouchWiz user interface. The latter is believed to be simpler and less flashy compared to previous TouchWiz iterations, as suggested by those leaked screenshots and the look of the redesigned S Health app. Also, the next TouchWiz UI will be flatter. Much flatter – perhaps about as flat as those icons in the image above.
The image was posted on Twitter by Samsung about an hour ago, so we know that what we're seeing is legitimate. And if our intuition is to be trusted, this could very well be a teaser exposing the design and features of the new TouchWiz user interface. The UI will be focused on speed, style, fun, privacy, heath, and much more, judging by the clues, so we should be expecting the next TouchWiz to be no less feature-rich than its previous versions.
The highly-anticipated Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for February 24, and from the looks of it, a livestream of it will be available via YouTube.

Yay for YouTube Live Stream. Samsung copying LG G2 launch (I'm kidding).

Do people actually LIKE this "flat" look? Ive hated it since WP7 and W8 first debutted, but it seems everyone is in a hurry to switch over to this, when I can quite recall that most people complained about the look of iOS7 and that Wp 7, 8, and W8 has never achieved widespread adoption despite being on board for more than 3 years. Is it fair to say that Touchwiz/NatureUX is not a mature enough look? Yes. But you can still have flash with subtlety, so why aren't we seeing that?

I've seen something similar before. It was on Samsung's very own YP-P2 and P3 media players (excellent iPod alternatives BTW) so I would hope those aren't the only choice of style for the new TW. I hope there are changeable/ alternate themes available like with LG phones.

That Teaser Image does not only "teases" the new TouchWiz UI but also new features that will come with the S5. "Outdoor" could either mean that Samsung is following Sony's route of making their devices waterproof or it could be the integration of more outdoor sensors like barometer, altimeter, thermometer...think of a Casio Pro-Trek build into your smartphone.

Meego crossed with ios7. Its funny how samsung fans insisted that touchwiz is 'really good' when sammy itself is about to ditch it. But M$ could learn a thing or two from this...
