Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge ship with a new version of TouchWiz based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It packs a whole host of visual improvements and new features — and you can get an early glimpse at the all in the gallery below.

If you’ve already installed Samsung’s Marshmallow upgrade on your Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 edge+, you will already be familiar with some of the changes it has made for Android 6.0 and up — like the redesigned menus and Quick Settings panel, and greater edge functionality.

There’s also a new dialler in the Phone app with a large video calling button, a cleaner Gallery app, Google Now on Tap, and more rounded stock icons for Samsung’s built-in apps.

You’ll find more screenshots by following the source link below. Not pictured are all of Android 6.0.1’s new emoji, which are available on Samsung’s latest devices.

Eagle-eyed readers will notice that this particular Galaxy S7 edge, which is pretty much fresh out of the box with just a handful of screenshots in the gallery (saved to an SD card), a third-party theme, and zero third-party apps, already has 8.91GB of internal storage used up.

That means Samsung’s stock software, as it comes pre-installed, uses almost 9GB of the 32GB available. It’s certainly a good job that we got a microSD card slot this time around.
