After showcasing Android Lollipop on the Galaxy S5 last month, the folks over at SamMobile have gotten their hands on an internal Lollipop build destined for the Galaxy Note 3. The video highlights significant changes to the TouchWiz UI, which now conforms to Material Design guidelines.
All facets of the UI has been tweaked, along with the Settings pane. The most noticeable design change is the shift away from dark teal shades to lighter colors. The build also includes floating circular action buttons throughout the interface, and is similar in most regards to what we've seen demoed on the Galaxy S5.
There's no word yet as to when Samsung intends to roll out the update. Until such time, feel free to share your thoughts on the upcoming changes to TouchWiz in the comments below.
