Samsung is expected to make more changes to its TouchWiz user interface for the Galaxy Note 7. The video below gives us a glimpse at that software for the first time ahead of the handset’s official debut.
Although the new UI is running on a Galaxy Note 5 in this video, it’s certainly not the TouchWiz we’re already familiar with. You can tell it’s Samsung software, but there are some nice changes and improvements that we haven’t seen yet.
They include the ability to apply icon packs as well as the theme packs we already have, a revamped and simpler Settings menu, a more customizable Quick Settings menu, and more. Samsung has also made lots of visual improvements for a cleaner look.
This particular build of TouchWiz is said to be an alpha release that’s currently in testing, but it could make its official debut for the Galaxy Note 7 later this year.
According to recent leaks, the device will get its official unveiling in New York City on August 2, and should go on sale before the end of the month. Some rumors claim the device will enter mass production in just a few days.
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to offer a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a new Snapdragon 823 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage as standard, and a microSD card slot. It’s also likely to be Samsung’s first phone with a built-in iris scanner.
