Rumor: Samsung may soon launch TouchWiz themes for its Android phones
Most of Samsung’s Android handsets are easily recognizable thanks to TouchWiz - Samsung’s own UI that makes its devices look quite different from smartphones made by other companies. While some users like TouchWiz, and other aren’t that crazy about it, there’s one thing that everyone would probably want from Samsung: customizable themes (like the Xperia Themes offered by Sony).

According to Italian website HDblog, Samsung could soon bring themes to some of its devices. The website revealed an image showing an unknown Samsung handset (possibly a Galaxy A5 or Galaxy A3) with some of the rumored themes on display. Assuming that the image is not fake, these themes might allow users to customize various aspects of the UI (color schemes, icons, backgrounds etc). Another image shows a slightly modified TouchWiz notifications area - with the S Finder icon placed on the upper left corner.

We have to note that, for now, we can’t vouch for the authenticity of either image. But we’ll bring more on this as soon as new details are available. Until then, you could drop us a comment to let us now if you’d like to have customizable themes on your Samsung smartphone.
