One of the new features on the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge is the Theme Manager which allows you to customise the entire look and feel of the TouchWiz interface, and we’re now hearing that Samsung is preparing lots of new themes including an AMOLED-friendly dark theme.
According to SamMobile, the new themes will launch around April 10th – the global launch of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge – and the dark theme will allow users to save power thanks to the Super AMOLED display on the smartphones. The themes will change the look of the settings screens, stock apps, keyboard, homescreen, wallpaper and the notifications menu and is part of Samsung’s attempt to offer increased customisation to customers.
Below are some screenshots of the new themes and the dark theme in particular is likely to be a godsend for those who require the absolute maximum out of their battery.
Themes on Android certainly aren’t a new feature but the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are the first time that Samsung has introduced a theme manager on its smartphones. The Korean manufacturer’s TouchWiz interface has generally split opinion – I for one don’t mind the software but others aren’t too fond of it – but allowing customers to change themes should mean the handsets are more popular with customers.
