It seems that Samsung will provide an update, Android L, for new models Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4. It is scheduled to appear at the end of this year, but so far I did not know exactly what will bring the new version on Samsung phones both visually and functionally . Fortunately, the Korean company can not hide even early versions of its software’s, so there are already images and footage of him running on an S5.
As we expected, at first sight, the differences are minor. Not only Samsung will not give up at TouchWiz, but they try to keep as many elements of its interface and adapt new features of this operating system. However, changes were made.
Custom Applications , such as settings, calls, notes, alarms and everything that comes preinstalled, received visual adjustments. They have a flatter design that is in line with the new material design from Google, wich will debut with Android L. As an unfinished version, the applications do not provide fluid animations as we’ve seen until now at Google presentations.
You can see from the video above that Samsung has worked to optimize the operating system for S5, but the company does not seem to hurry to release this update. Certainly Google will ban all producers of smartphones and tablets to launch any version of Android L before the software is released in a final version AOSP. Since Google seems to prepare the launch of Android and a new phablet in late October, a launch in December of Samsung’s update seems plausible.
