Yesterday, we got a taste of what the status bar on Samsung’s TouchWiz UI will look like when Android KitKat finally comes rolling by and it’s all looking very stock Android, which is a nice surprise. We’re expecting to see that build of Android KitKat on the Samsung Galaxy S5 when it launches at Samsung’s Unpacked event at MWC 2014 in just under two weeks now, but to this day we’ve still had very little indication of what the new TouchWiz is going to look like. Well, thanks to a teaser that Samsung circulated today, we might have a better idea of what the Samsung Galaxy S5 TouchWiz icons are going to look like.
As seen in the invite above, Samsung is inviting everyone to tune into their Unpacked 5 event and the invite features presumably the 9 different focuses that they’ve employed for designing the Galaxy S5, which include: Speed, Outdoor, Curiosity, Fun, Social, Style, Privacy, Fitness and Life. I’m most intrigued by fitness as Samsung hasn’t really alluded to any fitness-centric products in their repertoire, unless the Galaxy Gear 2 is going to be a glorified fitness tracker, but I guess we’ll see what they mean about this and all the other focuses at the Unpacked event. The general appearance of the icons are also quite different from what we’re used to with Samsung, and hopefully they incorporate a lot of this in their actual UI.
What do you think about the icons? Where do you think Samsung is going with TouchWiz? Let us know what you think in the comments.
