News: Leaked Images of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Show Updated User Interface

Leaked Images of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Show Updated User Interface

Mobile World Congress is just around the corner, and if patterns stay consistent, Samsung will be unveiling their newest member of the Galaxy line, the Galaxy S5.

While rumors about the device have been circulating for months—metal body, curved display, 20 megapixel camera, eye scanning technology—the latest from evleaks brings us a step closer to the real thing.

These leaked images, while saying nothing about hardware, do provide a glimpse into the latest version of Samsung's TouchWiz software. Gone is the boring homescreen, with cards à la Google Now there instead.

From the leak, we can see increased interaction between the homescreen and your apps. Package shipment information, route tracking, messages, weather, and more. It's basically a marriage between Windows Phone 8's Metro style and Google Now's card style.

I think it looks cool, but it's hard to say whether this will resemble anything close to the final product. Expect more information to slowly drip out as we inch closer to MWC.

What do you think about the design? Cool, lame, blah? Let us know in the comments below.
