A mysterious Samsung device carrying the model number “SM-G900H” have some speculating that it could be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 (or at least some kind of a variant). While we’re still not entirely sure which Samsung device it could launch as, some screenshots of a few of the device’s updated Samsung apps were leaked — namely, S Health and more recently S Voice.
What we found particularly interesting from the screen grabs is a refreshed new app design, taking a much more minimal, “flat” approach to the previous versions’ skeuomorphism. It’s not too apparent in S Health, but a heap ton more obvious in S Voice. You’ll also notice S Voice giving us a quick peek at what might be the bottom of the Galaxy S5, carrying a wider look and possibly smaller bezels (but the same ‘ol home button).
We’re wondering if this is the design change might have had something to do with Google’s recent visit to Samsung to talk about Sammy’s run away train that is TouchWiz. If this is a hint at what we can expect from the S5’s new version of TouchWiz — which we may have gotten a glimpse at in previous leaks — Samsung just might be onto something here. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
Shouldn’t be too much longer before we find out what Samsung has been up to. The OEM’s “Unpacked 5″ event is currently scheduled for February 24th, and although the Galaxy S5 wasn’t specifically mentioned in the invite, we have a good idea what they’re hinting at.
