More Samsung Galaxy S6 leaks: Microsoft Apps, design, dates

Things are definitely heating up for MWC 2015 and this week alone we're getting a load of information about the upcoming Galaxy S6. Of course, all of these are unofficial, though coming from "reliable sources" or "insiders", so take them with a grain of salt. But if even half of them came true, it would still make Samsung's flagship a very interesting and formidable contender in the smartphone market. Since we've pretty much heard all that we can about the hardware, now we're going to focus on the software and the overall design of the device.

Samsung rumored to make bloatware optional, downloadable

Englightenment or desperation? Whichever your take on Samsung's motives, the Korean OEM is now reported to be slimming down its phone's experience even further. In addition to making the TouchWiz aesthetic fall in line with the new Material Design, it will also be moving much of its less frequently used but pre-installed apps out of the default installation and into Google Play Store, or perhaps its own GALAXY Apps Store, paving the way for a more Nexus-like experience of Samsung devices.

Leaked images of TouchWiz themes surface

Samsung could be working on themes for the new TouchWiz but nothing is certain and official yet. We only head rumors about it and recently, images have been discovered which could serve as clues to the TouchWiz themes feature.

Sources: Samsung Galaxy S4 to receive Lollipop update

Samsung-centric tech blog Sam Mobile has once again called upon the power of their Samsung sources and all but confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 – last year’s flagship smartphone – will get an official update to Android 5.0. That’s as close we come to confirming it without an official announcement from the South Korean gadget giant.

Samsung gives second preview of Lollipop for Galaxy S5

It looks like Samsung is eager to show people how Android 5.0 will marry with TouchWiz on their current smartphone flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5. A month ago, the Korean gadget giant offered a preview on the alpha build of Android Lollipop for the Galaxy S5. Today, we will be seeing more of the progress Samsung is making into building TouchWiz for this new version of Android.

Samsung Galaxy S3 given an Android KitKat lifeline

Not too long ago, Samsung made a decision that the international version of the Samsung Galaxy SIII (I9300) – one of its most popular phones ever – is not going to get an official TouchWiz Android 4.4 KitKat update. Cue the sound of millions of hearts of Galaxy SIII owners breaking, as most of them were really still hoping against hope that it would happen. Now the Galaxy SIII is given a lifeline through community development by “arter97”, an XDA Senior Member, with a port from a Korean SIII variant that had an official KitKat update.

Samsung adds to Galaxy line with new Kitkat budget phones

Samsung is looking to expand its line of Galaxy phones (does anyone actually know how many there are now?) with four new additions that will sit cleanly at the “budget phone” strata for the South Korean smartphone giant – the Galaxy Core II, Galaxy Ace 4, Galaxy Young 2, and the Galaxy Star 2. Allow us to briefly take you through the highlights of each.
