We’ve already seen an early build of Android 5.0 running on a Galaxy S5 and today we’re getting a closer look at Samsung’s progress. The folks at SamMobile have gotten hold of an updated version of Lollipop for the GS5 and have put together a quick video showing how it handles TouchWiz.

Samsung appears to be adopting some of Google’s Material Design guidelines and this definitely looks like the most tolerable version of TouchWiz yet. However, we’ll hold back our enthusiasm until we get our hands on the finished product, which is rumored to be available sometime before the end of the year.
