Video shows off new look TouchWiz UI rumored to debut on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7
There is speculation that Samsung is going to replace the current version of TouchWiz with a new version of its user interface that will debut on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. A video showing off the new version of the UI was posted by HDBlog.it, and is in Italian. Nevertheless, if you use your eyes instead of your ears, you will see that the new version of the UI is cleaner than the most recent versions of Touch Wiz.
You might also notice that the colors are more subdued on the new UI. The video shows us how to put widgets on the screen, choose from a number of different themes, and how to select different wallpaper. Various core apps are shown with various changes. New APKs for the so-called Grace UX can be found in the sourcelink after being posted by XDA Developers. Included are APKs for the SNote, SBrowser, the video player, launcher and more. To use this, you will need root access.
Samsung has been criticized for years over TouchWiz. Initial complaints called the icons too cartoonish followed by complaints over the saturated colors employed on the UI. Many were hoping for a much lighter feel. From what we can see of the new look UI, it appears that a number of issues have been addressed. And the good news for those with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is that the new UI might be made available to those two models in a future update.
