Samsung to bring software changes to Galaxy S6 : Report

New day, new report about the upcoming flagship from Samsung. As per a latest report from SamMobile, Samsung is expected to bring a number of software changes to the Galaxy S6.


The report states that, Samsung will bring some important changes to TouchWiz which apparently be fast as compared to previous iterations. It is even said to be faster on the Galaxy S6 than Lollipop is on the Note 4. Samsung will remove many of its pre-installed apps, like S Voice, S Health and S Note, from the software and instead offer them to users through Galaxy Apps store. As a result of its settlement on the patent royalty dispute with Microsoft, Samsung will pre-install some applications provided by Microsoft because of its recent agreement with the company that ended their patent royalty dispute.

OneNote, OneDrive, Office Mobile with free Office 365 subscription and Skype are all said to come pre-installed on the next flagship. Giving further insights, the report said that the Galaxy S6 will get extra theming options, apps should be more colorful, and the default Samsung keyboard is expected to look like a mix of iOS keyboard and the keyboard seen on the Galaxy Tab S. Users can select between 4×4, 4×5 and 5×5 icon layouts in the app drawer, app drawer no longer supports endless scrolling, music app still runs in full-screen mode at all times and so on.

Last month, a report had stated that Samsung will remove bloatware apps from TouchWiz. The company will launch the Galaxy S6 March 1 at the MWC
