A leaked video of a Samsung GALAXY S II running the latest Google Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich indicates that development for integration is underway. And needless to say, the Korean company will incorporate their proprietary TouchWiz user interface onto the operating system to provide a unique user experience.
An insider report reveals that Samsung is currently working to integrate the Android 4.0.1 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile platform on their GALAXY S II smartphone. The video reveals that Samsung is still inclined to layer most of their TouchWiz user interface (UI) over the Android 4.0.1 OS at this point, which may be a little disappointing to those who prefer the stock Android experience.
Some nice features were demonstrated such as the lock screen which now conjures a lock icon at the very spot where the finger has contact with the screen. The improvement is mostly cosmetic, however, as unlocking still utilizes the current method of sliding the finger across the screen. While the home screen generally looks the same as the current Google Android Gingerbread version, a new multitasking interface, call forth by a long-pressing of the home button, appears to make scrolling and closing running programs more intuitive and visually pleasant.
Face unlock was also unveiled with its setup option present in the video, although demonstrations of the setup and usage were not shown. It may appear that most of the TouchWiz UI in Android 4.0.1 resembles the current one, but it should be noted that the system is still in development.
