As we are moving closer to the Samsung Galaxy S5 release date, more details about the much-awaited smartphone are starting to hit the web. After yesterday we’ve talked about Galaxy S5′s camera and model numbers, today we’re focusing on the terminals software functions.
As you probably know, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and if the rumors prove true, the Korean company would give TouchWiz UI a facelift. Not long ago we’ve got our hands on what it looked like Galaxy S5′s homescreen which will allegedly bring a card-based interface. Now courtesy of Sammobile and Androidworld.nl we get a look at the revamped S Voice interface.
The current S Voice app is looking rather dull and if the rumors prove real the revamped interface would be warmly welcomed. The S Voice app debuted on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and it didn’t receive any important updates since.
As you can see in the gallery bellow, the new S Voice user interface looks way better, being both cleaner and flatter, making it blend in whit the more modern look of KitKat. What’s even more interesting is the presence of the menu button in the top right corner, wich might indicated that Samsung’s next-gen flagship smartphone might arrive with on-screen buttons.
Anyway, the new S Voice app looks like it needs some working until it’s released. The text slides under the said menu buttons which looks a bit odd.
The new leaked photos look very much the same as the “search cards” we’ve seen earlier this month, making us believe they might be real. Anyway, nothing is official until Samsung says so, therefore we are advising you to take the rumor with a pinch of salt.
If your wondering what the rumor mill has to say about Samsung Galaxy S5′s technical specifications, hear that the smartphone is expected to arrive with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with QHD resolution, 3 GB RAM, octo-core Exynos 6 Octa / quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, and a 16 MP rear-facing camera.
