Samsung Galaxy S5 apps leak ahead of launch

Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to arrive on April 11, but some of the apps which will come preinstalled with the flagship device have already leaked on XDA. Among those leaked are S Note, WatchON, Gear Manager, Gear Fit Manager, Calculator, S Health, and S Translator. They are all installable APK files, which means you can easily download and install them on your device. However you will have to force stop and uninstall any previous version of these apps, which means your device will have to be rooted.

Its also important to note that not all apps will work on older devices. For example the S Health app does not work at all, nor will the Gear Fit Manager, which obviously requires one of the Samsung Gear devices which will launch alongside the Galaxy S5 next month.

While these apps may work on any Android device, they will likely require certain Android APIs only available on Galaxy devices. At the moment, the only devices, which have been confirmed to flawlessly run the leaked apps, are the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

If you want to try them out, head over to the source link below to download the APK files.
