Now that Samsung's "Project Grace
" interface overhaul has graced a retail handset - the Galaxy Note 7
- we ought to take a deeper look at the TouchWiz metamorphosis that will hopefully land to other flagships of the Galaxy line at some point, too.
Samsung did a test drive for the new TouchWiz interface version by deploying it to beta testers with Note 5 handsets in Korea
, so at least there is a hint that this new overlay could come to the previous edition of the S Pen-wielding portfolio. While the new interface keeps the general shape and familiar form of TouchWiz, the icons have been smoothed out and made more consistent - a common complaint with Samsung's overlay - but there are also other changes, like unifying the S Pen abilities into one app called simply Notes, or adding a blue light filter
in the status bar toggles.
Until you wait for your Galaxy Note 7 to arrive, or for Samsung to port the new interface to your current Galaxy flagship, take a look at some of the cool new features it will sport to soothe your aching waiting heart.

There are plenty more subtle changes to Samsung's new Android overlay edition, as found on the Note 7, which you can preview also in the official screens and promo videos below, yet even in this preliminary look things are looking promising, and we can't wait to go into the nitty-gritty soon.
