Samsung is revamping its smartphone portfolio after a 2014 to forget, with the company coming back with fresh designs and a new strategy. The company has been criticized for many things, but arguably the most consistent complaint is over Samsung's TouchWiz Android skin, which often called slow, laggy, and bloated.

Thankfully it seems the Korean giant is taking note as BusinessKorea reports that the largest smartphone company in the world is going to streamline TouchWiz. We have heard that rumor before and leaked documents from within Samsung point to a more performance friendly software experience form the company. However, Business Korea is offering something more concrete and says the new Galaxy S6 will come with the improved and more slender TouchWiz.

Samsung will get rid of unnecessary functions, bloatware, and generally trim down the software to be closer to the stock Android Lollipop experience you see on the Nexus 6. The company will retain some of its own flourishes, but TouchWiz may finally be meeting expectations in the near future.
