The recent TouchWiz version came lighter, with less dubious features and more useful applications. The new changes didn't surprise many users who were already receiving minor tweaks since Jelly Bean version 4.1 of Android. Animation designer of the new interface, Gerald Mark Soto, posted on his Vimeo profile a short video demonstrating the design for the new TouchWiz.

According to Soto, the original concept of the new TouchWiz responsibility for Perception, creator of futuristic scenarios used in films like Robocop, Man Iron 2, Avengers, among others. The images displayed on the video match the wallpaper, and some elements have leaked through the profile. @evleaks last year when the first images of a supposed TouchWiz makeover were released.
