With all the talk about Samsung leaving Android behind for the sake of Tizen, it will be interesting to see how their UI evolves this year. First of all we seem to be getting a brand new background color pattern, one that feels a bit like the Nexus ones, only with darker shades. We’ve now got interactive notifications, shown in a new way and there’s no notification bar on the lockscreen.

The notifications can be seen under User Picture. The bulk of the app icons has stayed the same, while the S Voice seems to be a bit more evolved now, or at least its minimalistic interface made me think that. The change isn’t a radical shift from the old UI and I have to say I like that transparent row of toggles triggered together with the notifications, that are most likely transparent as well.
