Users of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will reportedly get the Samsung Galaxy S6-like TouchWiz UX, via an OS update.

According to YouMobile, Samsung will incorporate the more recent TouchWiz UX in the Android 5.1 (Lollipop) update and release it as an OS update to Galaxy Note 4 users across the globe.

However, a specific timeline for the roll-out is yet to surface and Samsung is currently seeding the older Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update to users of older Galaxy smartphones. Hence, this could take some time before it reaches Note 4 users.

The YouMobile report also states that Samsung may release the Android 5.1 OS update to Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge users, before seeding the firmware to other devices.

This roll-out is rumoured to begin in Q2 2015.

Samsung TouchWiz UX: TouchWiz offers an enhanced full-touch interface to users, and is developed by Samsung Electronics. The company has not issued licences to third-party operators to use its TouchWiz UX.

The Galaxy S6 comes with the TouchWiz Nature UX 5.0 version of the interface.
