I disagree but okay. TouchWiz might be interpreted to people as a theme. But its mainly a launcher. You can delete the TouchWiz launcher and still have a fully functional phone. LG Modifies their settings apks and other apks with their own theme. So i consider TouchWiz to be a launcher and the rest of it to be a Samsung Theme. But to each their own i guess.

Besides, this thread was going nowhere so i was trying to figure out what the point of this thread was.

Go ask an actual Dev if TouchWiz is just a launcher and they will laugh at you. It is EVERYWHERE in the code dude.... don't get how you don't understand that. It is in the settings, phone app, statusbar, lockscreen, notification shade, camera, etc.

Okay i guess that was too broad a statement saying it was just a launcher. But to me, it mainly is a launcher. The rest is just a theme/skin put on by Samsung the same that LG does. I seriously didn't understand what the OP was getting at with "Android L and TouchWiz" they will simply coexist. Samsung will apply their themes and animations over top of the default ones because that is their trademark.

How did you not understand? He was wondering if, for example, the new lockscreen notifications and notification shade would make it's way to our phone, or material design. Or if Samsung would make their own version of L and do it their way. Simple question, not so simple answer.

Well naturally I would assume Samsung will change it. But yes not so simple an answer. I hope they don't change things too much like they did with our phones for the lock screen Widgets.

The same thing that will happen at the release of every new version of android. Google will show a beautiful simplified and sleek version of android and then Samsung will ship it with their skin over it effectively making any improvements Google made negligible.

Ok guys to put all your worries to rest. Samsung will almost certainly not give up on android. Their going to most likely strip android to the basics again and theme everything from the ground up. Just like last time, the time before that, the time before that, etc. Whenever a major upgrade came out they just went with it. All android l is a 3rd coordinate in the os for depth, new re-aamped animations and a new api level. It's nothing for the tons and tons of devs and designers at samsung to take on. Give it time and they will probably release their version of android l. And no, touchwiz is not just a launcher, it's a launcher, a whole new framework jar, and a whole new system ui. Also take into account what they've done to the settings. Tabs, a grid, more options all of it. It's not that easy to build everything from the ground up but it will be done.

You do realize that Samsung put things in their Touchwiz skin that was later adopted by stock android, right?

E.g. brightness slider in notification shade, quick toggles in notification shade, messaging popups, etc.

I'm sure multi window is on its way to stock android as well.

I doubt it multi window will make it. Great idea but it's just not that useful. Especially with the limited screen size phones have. Google is always trying to minimize ram and battery usage
