A leaked photo of what is claimed to be the new design layout for Samsung's forthcoming Android overlay has been released.
Samsung adds its TouchWiz platform on top of the Android OS, and the latest updates, leaked by the @evleaks twitter account suggests that Samsung is being increasingly influenced by Google design concepts.
The home page appears, if the photo is correct, to be more of a tile-like layout, which owes more to Google Now than to Microsoft.
Google Now, an information portal, is already included in Samsung devices, but not prominently, and is likely to remain buried if Samsung starts pushing its own version at future smartphone users.
It's expected that the new home page user interface could appear on Samsung's Galaxy S5, which is due to go on sale by this May.
