Samsung has released a new teaser image of the UNPACKED 5 event, which offers a glimpse of new TouchWiz user interface that would be running on the top of Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the Galaxy S5.
The South Korean company has been repeatedly criticized in the past for its TouchWiz interface. Many of tech experts consider it too heavy and disturbing, but it appears the criticism has been accepted. Consequently, a completely new user interface seems to be introduced along with the Galaxy S5, which looks much more simple and clean.
By going as the teaser, not only it reveals the flat and minimal design of icons with a rounded shape, but also some key aspects of the Galaxy S5 i.e. speed, curiosity, fun, location, social, style, privacy, fitness and everyday life. These are the elements on which the phone would put a big focus so as to provide new and improved features and much more.
Besides, the Galaxy S5 will also be completely different and powerful than its predecessors. In fact, the Galaxy S4 is too aesthetically similar to the S3, and according to Samsung, it was one of the reasons why the S4 couldn’t attract and retain customers as hoped by the company itself.
As per previous reports, the successor of the S4 will be available in two variants: metal and plastic. It’s likely to have a 5.25-inch WQHD display; an octa-core Exynos 6 processor (metal variant) or a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor (plastic variant); 3GB of RAM; 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS and a 3.2-megapixel front-facing sensor; 32/64GB internal memory expandable via micro SD slot; 3200 mAh battery; and Android 4.4 KitKat with new UI.
Undoubtedly, the quest about the UNPACKED 5 event is running high because Samsung is not only preparing their flagship product of 2014, but also new UI that would improve the overall experience provided by the device. Everything will be answered in less than two weeks during the opening of the Mobile World Congress 2014.
