Purported Samsung smartphone UI leaks, looks a lot like Magazine UI
TouchWiz Nature UX has been gracing the home screens of Samsung phones and tablet for quite some time now, though the most recent tablet line-up from South Korea already features a newer version called Magazine UI, which we’ve seen in action on all tablets from CES this year. 2014 should also be the year when Samsung rethinks its smartphone user interface, and we’ve already seen hints on where the phone-maker might take it.
Another leaked image, seen above, tries to anticipate how your Samsung Galaxy S 5 will look, in terms of what is displayed on the screen. If you think it looks like a combination between HTC’s BlinkFeed, Microsoft’s tiles, and Flipboard, you’re not alone. We’re seeing apps and notifications displayed on the full width of the screen, with colorful imagery and thin typography overlaid on top of it. This way of displaying information is similar to what Samsung has done on its tablets, with the Magazine UI.
However, it is not certain that this will actually be the user interface this year’s Samsung phones will ship with. It might be an abandoned project, a work in progress, or, why not, the real deal. Let us know what you think!
