TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy S6 to be "amazingly fast", more software changes expected
Mere hours ago, we told you that Samsung's Galaxy S6 could be released on March 22 - less than a month after it's going to be officially announced at MWC 2015. Now, we have more details about the new Galaxy, this time related to the software changes that it's supposed to bring.

According to Sam Mobile, TouchWiz on the Galaxy S6 will be "amazingly fast" - at least compared to Lollipop and TouchWiz on the Galaxy Note 4. Reportedly, Samsung has removed a lot of its pre-installed apps from the new TouchWiz UI. It's even possible that apps like S Voice, S Health, or Scrapbook won't come pre-loaded, instead being available to download via Galaxy Apps store, if you think you need them. Interestingly, among the apps that will come pre-installed with the new TouchWiz - at least according to Sam Mobile's sources - we'll find Microsoft apps like OneDrive, OneNote, and Office Mobile (with free Office 365 subscriptions).

Visually, TouchWiz on the Galaxy S6 should have many Lollipop-like animations and effects. Moreover, there will be extra theming options, apps should be more colorful, and the default Samsung keyboard is expected to look like a mix of iOS keyboard and the keyboard seen on the Galaxy Tab S. That sounds intriguing.

Not long ago, we ran a poll asking you if Samsung should trim down TouchWiz. The result? 90% of those who responded answered "yes." Well, it seems that Samsung is indeed doing what almost everyone wants it to.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 will be announced on March 1, when all the rumors and speculations about it are finally going to come to an end.
