Samsung Galaxy S5's new Touchwiz icons pop up in colourful leak

When Samsung tweeted a teaser for its MWW 2014 Unpacked event this week, most of us believed it was a pretty big hint at the new Touchwiz design coming on the Galaxy S5.

A new screenshot has now appeared that could confirm that we (and the rest of the internet) were on the money.

The picture could either be from a Tizen phone or the Samsung Galaxy S5 itself. Either way, the icon styles match those from the invitation, and two of them – the ‘Curiosity’ and ‘Outdoor’ icons – are identical.

Tizen, Tizen, burning bright

IconsWe’re big fans of these rather funky new flat, circular icons, so here’s hoping they do make it into the S5 after all of this.

The handset is also expected to come with a 2.5GHz quad core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 20MP rear camera.

Other hints in the invite suggested Samsung will also be putting more focus on fitness and privacy. Fingerprint scanner ahoy?

Meanwhile we’re expecting to hear more about Samsung’s Tizen very soon – quite possibly as soon as MWC.
