Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Likely To Run On Android 5.1 With Latest TouchWiz Version
Samsung has gradually been upgrading its devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Most frequently, it has been busy rolling out builds based on Android 5.0.x, for updating its devices.
Now the company is reportedly working on Android 5.1 Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4. This has been reported by an Android news website YouMobile. The news site claims that it received unconfirmed reports which suggest that Samsung is looking forward to make its Note 4 phablet up to Android 5.1 Lollipop.
In addition to this, the source suggests that the phablet will use the latest TouchWiz UX, which is the same interface used in the elite device, the Galaxy S6.
Indeed, Lollipop 5.1 combined with TouchWiz UX is going to enrich the joy Samsung fans get by using its devices. The experience will be made even better by the new version of the interface which has been refined by removing much of the bloatware. What is the effect?
Because of the removal of bloatware, the weight of the skin has been lessened and the speed has been increased. The sources claim that major chunk of the inspiration was acquired from Samsung’s own Tizen OS than by Android.
The major difference between the latest version of TouchWiz and the old one is of appearance of icons. It is important notify here that TouchWiz has been ridiculed by most of the users as they consider these icons cartoonish. Then question is: will it be able to escape that criticism with the new design of icons? This is hard to predict, but TouchWiz won’t lose its colors and brightness even in the new version.
Else than these important and basic changes, none other detail regarding the phablet has surfaced out until the time of publishing this article. It is however YouMobile again which disclosed that the upgradation to Lolliop 5.1 will begin with Samsung’s flagship devices Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. This upgradation is expected in the second half of ongoing year.
This means that if the rumors are true, Samsung consumers will have to wait for a while for the phablet to get the update. But that matters least when a fast and efficient device is being anticipated.
