Following the delish treat of Android 5.0 Lollipop on Samsung Galaxy S5, we are now looking at an equally pretty sneak peek on last year's flagship - the Galaxy S4. This exclusive preview shows amazing marriage of Android Lollipop with TouchWiz. Official Android 5.0 Lollipop with a renovated TouchWiz UI Nature UX 3.0 will soon arrive to adorn the Exynos powered Galaxy S4 model GT-I9500. However, no word has yet been shared about the Snapdragon powered S4.

Android 5.0 Lollipop on Galaxy S4 preview:

This exclusive Android 5.0 Lollipop Galaxy S4 preview comes thanks to elite friends of Sammobile. After testing the latest build with Samsung Galaxy S5 TouchWiz on top, folks at Sammobile have shared the preview while giving the warning that the current build is plagued with bugs and cannot be used as a daily driver. Which is the reason why the popular firmware site isn't sharing this particular build with the public. 

the Korean giant has given the Galaxy S4 its latest Lollipop-optimised TouchWiz UI, which is the same one we previewed on the Galaxy S5’s Lollipop builds. Samsung has also ported the Galaxy S5’s TouchWiz launcher with My Magazines and Popping Colours lockscreen effect to the Galaxy S4, and overhauled the look of its proprietary system apps – phone, messaging, contacts, calculator, clock etc – due to Google’s new design guidelines.

The site reports that not only Samsung Galaxy S4 works extremely well and snappier on the latest build of Android and TouchWiz but also offers better memory management. Considering Samsung's latest TouchWiz is introduced with Android 5.0 Lollipop for Galaxy S4, you will notice many UI features from Samsung Galaxy S5. New TouchWiz, new apps from SGS5 such as My Magazines, and the redesigning of everything on Material Design basics will complete this build. Here is the Android 5.0 Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy S4 with renovated TouchWiz on board:
