The Samsung Galaxy S5 will feature a new version of the S Health app.

Various screenshots showing off the new version leaked onto the internet this week. The app performs tasks related to the user's health such as counting calories, step count and heart rate.

Cosmetically, the app now more closely resembles some of the other software that will be found on the Galaxy S5. It is also designed to follow better with Android design guidelines as its overflow action menu bars seem to be fairly different from typical Touch Wiz.

The first picture taken with a Galaxy S5 camera could have been leaked last week.

@evleaks posted up a picture of what could be the first sample image taken with the Galaxy S5. It doesn't reveal anything about the S5's camera quality, but it does confirm that the device will feature a 16-megapixel sensor which jives with many recent reports.

The image was shared from the Flipboard news and social curation app by a user known as @123fliptest around three weeks ago. There is also EXIF data on the photo that reveals the resolution of the original file which was 5,312 x 2,988 which makes it around 16-megapixels.

The data states that the picture was taken with a SAMSUNG-SM-G900V which could be Verizon's version of the Galaxy S5.

Another leak delivered courtesy of Sam Mobile reveals that the Galaxy S5 will launch for all major U.S. carriers including Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular. It will also be available on all major carriers in Japan, Europe, China and South Korea.

The Galaxy S5 is also rumored to feature a new music player that will be deeply integrated with social media.

This app is called "Friends Music" and appeared on a patent the company recently received. This does not officially confirm that it will be featured on the device, but there is a good chance.
