Samsung’s updated S Health and S Voice apps leaked, likely to debut on the Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy S5 S Health leak

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.

    that statusbar looks too busy… thats one of my petpeeves

    • Andr3ww

      Technically it’s no different than stock Android except for the larger font. You can disable the battery percentage, alarm, and take the phone off of silence to clean it up.

  • Anonymouse

    Is there anyway to check the resolution of the screenshots? I’m assuming that would be pretty hard to do but…

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      They’re all 1080×1920.

  • Apple Braniac

    wow that is ugly as hell

  • Andr3ww

    Hopefully the S5 gets rid of the dedicated menu button like they did on the Galaxy Note Pro’s…the screenshot shows an overflow menu button.

    • Abhijeet Mishra

      It will. All devices that run on Android 4.4 out of the box will have the recent apps key (at least on Samsung devices, since they’re following Google’s guidelines pretty nicely for KitKat, if only because Google made them a bit more necessary this time.)

    • Duy Pham

      i find the menu button pretty useful lol

  • toomuchgame441

    What does this to do with the M8??

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Um… wut? O_o

      • toomuchgame441

        Chavez I know “The Man” has forced u to write this article, but deep down you really yearn for HTC M8 news.

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          :P

        • Fel Pe

          LOL

  • KiwiBri

    Damn you Samsung and the home button!

    • Duy Pham

      are you stupid? the home button is nice.

      • KiwiBri

        Don’t call me stupid. I am entitled to my own Opinion.
        The Home Button maybe nice for people like you. I bet you have a White Phone with Hello Kitty stickers too??

  • Mikhail Cass

    Whoever is leaking these screenshots loves Magna Carter Holy Grail or album drops in all leaked material was part of their deal.

    • Duy Pham

      back in the summer, samsung was offering the album for free to s4/note2 users.

      • Mikhail Cass

        I know. I have an S4. You aren’t forced to donwload it. My point was that there have been several leaked screenshots all playing MCHG.

  • Fel Pe

    I love Samsung products, specially the Note 3. However their last moves have really started to worry me about the direction Samsung is heading… I might be totally wrong, but all the leaked pics of the new Samsung UI are very uh… frustrating.

    • Herb_Eaversmells

      Why do you find it frustrating?

      • Fel Pe

        They are too minimalist and flat plus it resembles too much windows to me… also it goes too far away from stock android and I don’t think that’s the best approach… Of course, I can be totally wrong, when TouchWizz first came out I hated it… and then it became my software of choice (Samsung hardware really helped in here too)… so I hope I’m wrong but so far I’m just worried.

    • Steve

      I like the minimalist/ flat myself. But I wouldnt go too far, as like all trends it will be dated when design flavors change.

  • Apple Braniac

    someone ban this nutjob already

  • Steve

    She was also giving BJ’s behind the 7-11 for 20 bucks a pop. There was a line all the way to Chilis on friday night.

    Funny how you leave that part out.

  • Megatron_Don

    kill yourself!!!

  • Segroukin

    Hope touchwiz as a whole gets a flat look. Current UX looks too heavy!
