    Samsung launches exclusive themes for its new Galaxy A (2016) line-up

    With a new phone come new accessoires. And also, apparently, new themes, as Samsung has launched a collection of themes exclusive to its new Galaxy A (2016) line-up. Last year, Samsung launched the theme store for its TouchWiz interface together with the Galaxy S6. Since then, more and more devices have launched with this feature, though some low-end models were denied the option. Now, the recently launched 2016 Galaxy A phones are the first to get a set of exclusively designed themes.

    At this moment, there are eleven themes available that cover the range between colorful and minimalistic, making sure you don't have to walk around with the same TouchWiz design as, say, the average Galaxy S6 owner. And we've checked: these themes indeed only show up when accessing the store from a 2016 Galaxy A device such as the Galaxy A3 (2016), or Galaxy A5 (2016).

    This is of course no guarantee these are the best looking themes to be found in the entire store, but they cost nothing and you know what they say: there's no accounting for taste. Still, it's good to see Samsung pushing the possibilities its themes feature and store offer.
