Yesterday we reported that Samsung would be modifying a number of its Galaxy phones just so that they can sell them in the Netherlands, but we didn’t know what modifications were made. Well, the folks over at Sammyhub.com got in touch with the company and found out what some of the modifications will be. One of the revamped features will be an alternative to “photo flicking” when looking at photos in the gallery. Here’s what Samsung had to say:
We have applied one of several alternative features that we had developed in order to provide a seamless user experience for consumers.
Models featuring the new UI function (as an alternative to the ‘photo flicking’) will be available on the market from Oct 14th, 2011.
With the ‘photo flicking’ feature, the image on screen appears to bounce when the user first touches the display and then flicks to the next image when touched again.
As an alternative, Samsung applied its “blue glow” user interface feature, where blue light highlights the edge of the image when the display is first touched.
If this is an example of what the other changes are like, it means that it won’t be detracting from the whole Android experience, which can only be a good thing. I wonder if Samsung will be making these changes available to the rest of the world.
