    Awesome.

    I hope the SGS5 gets even better performance thanks to ART and I really like the new notifications.

    Apart from that, I don't remember anything else interesting. Samsung phones already have power saving features and do not disturb.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up, but that's good to hear. It's certainly in Samsung's interest to get moving on that.

    Though, Touchwiz already had a great feature set, and I'm already using Art.

    I wouldn't count on it, and if it does come out this Fall, I bet it's just a band aid version, poorly hacked onto existing Touchwiz.

    Where the all new Galaxy S6 coming in March, will be fully built around Android L, and Touchwiz on the S6 officially made for the 'L' version. I bet will be different and much better than 'L' on the S5 and Note 4.

    Samsung certainly have the resources to make this happen - it's their will that is in question.

    If previous schedules hold I think we are looking at Feb/March of 2015.

    This^. Assuming that L is released around the customary late Oct, early Nov timeframe that's becoming customary for new Android releases, the only devices I expect to see L on shortly thereafter are Nexus, GPE, and probably soon after, Moto Xs.

    Don't expect the new notifications. TouchWiz'll make sure of that.

    If this is true, I will stop bitching about Samsung not continuing their google play edition this year
