In less than three weeks the Samsung Galaxy S5 is going to be released in more than 100 countries around the world. Major carriers in the U.S. have already started taking pre-orders for the device. There’s no doubt that customers are excited about the launch. Thanks to the folks who have leaked the first ever Samsung Galaxy S5 firmware online, the wait will be a bit more bearable as advanced users take the firmware file apart to find out what goodies its hiding.
This particular Galaxy S5 firmware is for the Chinese SM-G9009D variant. Firmware for other regions is expected to be leaked online as well in the coming days. Galaxy S5 will come running Android 4.4.2 out of the box, the company has already confirmed this, the leaked firmware simply reiterates the claim.
In the coming days we should also expect to see Galaxy S5 apps popping up on the internet, it would be too hard to extract them from leaked Galaxy S5 firmware files. The updated S Voice app found in Galaxy S5 has already found its way online, and is available for download now. Anyone wishing to try out the new apps would require a Samsung device, for everyone else, there will be a lot of screenshots to gawk at.
