When Samsung launched their new Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones they also released a new version of their TouchWiz UI.
According to Samsung their update TouchWiz UI is around 40 percent lighter than the previous version.
Now according to a recent report the new design of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI was apparently inspired by Tizen, this is Samsung’s new mobile OS that they have been trying to get off the ground.
This would make sense for Samsung to incorporate some of the design elements from Tizen into their TouchWiz UI, as the company plans to launch more Tizen smartphones in the future.
Samsung could one day switch from Android to Tizen as their main mobile OS, although they would need to make their new OS more popular in order to do this. One way to do this would be to give both Tizen and Android a similar look, and we could see further changes to the design of their Android UI in the future.
