Samsung Electronics will reportedly make changes to the TouchWiz user interface (UI) of its next flagship Galaxy S6 smartphone , scheduled to be unveiled at MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Spain. The company is planning to save memory resources and improve the UI's functions by strengthening core features and eliminating unnecessary ones, industry sources told the Korea Times.
A similar approach has been already followed by Google in the Google Nexus 6, which utilizes a basic UI provided by Android OS without a separate UI. The Nexus 6 was introduced to the U.S. in November of last year.
TouchWiz has been used as a differentiation factor, starting with the Galaxy S3. The model added new functions that recognize vital signs such as facial movements, voice, and hand gestures with the concept of human-focused UI. Since then, Samsung has revealed an upgraded TouchWiz with new functions whenever launching smartphones.
