Posting on Twitter, @evleaks, who has an impressive track record on such matters, has shared three screenshots, stating that Samsung is “exploring a new smartphone UI”.
Although there’s been no word from Samsung, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Korean company was in the process of a major facelift of its UI. When the Samsung Galaxy S4 launched, many said that, despite the addition of a lot of features, it was all very similar to previous devices. Compared to the changes we’ve seen at HTC, LG or the stripping back at Motorola, Samsung seems to have changed little in terms of visual design. With the Samsung Galaxy S5 approaching launch in spring 2014, it would seem like a prime opportunity to give things a refresh.
Speculation is building in the approach to the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch, with a collection of rumours pointing to what we might expect, and we’ll bring you all details as they are announced. .
