Samsung adds more themes to the Galaxy S6 and is now taking submissions
The Theme Manager is just one of the new features packed into Samsung’s Galaxy S6 flagship, but only a modest selection of options were available when we got our hands on the phone. As expected, Samsung has updated the Theme Manager with an array of new choices, coinciding with the handset’s global roll-out.
Inside the theme store you’ll find plenty of new entries, such as Deer Dream, Retro and Pixel Art, to name just a small selection. Samsung has also teamed up with well-known brands to release a LEGO inspired look and a healthy selection of Avengers character themes to choose from. We’ll be taking a more detailed look at just how powerful Samsung’s Theme Engine is a little later.
While we’re on the subject, Samsung is also inviting designers to pitch their own themes for the Galaxy Theme store. Authoring tools for the Galaxy S6 had been rumored just a few weeks ago.
Designers can send their portfolio off to Samsung and successful applicants will be invited to have their themes posted in the store. There do not appear to be any limits on what you can enter with regards to content, as any characters or brands are apparently welcome. You can check out this link for more details.
Samsung’s Theme Manager originally appeared in the Galaxy A series and now looks to be a staple feature in Samsung’s mid and high-end smartphones. Given the divided opinions about Touchwiz within the Android community, perhaps the extra choice will address some people’s complaints.
Let us know what you think about Samsung’s themes and if there are any custom submissions that you would really like to see.
