Alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 reveals itself under transparent cases

Alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 reveals itself under transparent cases
After Spigen, Verus and Ewill, another second-tier phone accessory maker has posted their own batch of rogue Samsung Galaxy S6 cases that you can order right now. The photos are depicting the same huge cutout on the back which unveils the camera lens, and leaves place for your finger to be pressed towards the pulse sensor that made a debut with the Galaxy S5

This time around, however, the cases in question are of the transparent type, leaving us further exposed to what the Galaxy S6 is quite possible to look like - heavily rounded corners, taller home key, slim unibody chassis, and a general whiff of an iPhone 6 design. 

Of course, before we see the real thing announced, it's premature to draw conclusions, as rumors are suggesting that Samsung will be putting glass front and back on top of the all-metal frame.

Looks more like S6 Mini to me, look at picture #2. The screen looks kinda small.

It does look like it takes after the Mini design ethos, with larger top and bottom bezels.

The bezels look as terrible, even worse than on the iPhones
And they still have a protruding camera
I thought Samsung would finally drop this after Apple was mocked for theirs

The rest of the design looks good though IMO

IMO they should make the bezels thinner, at least S4 level, or preferably G3 level
And make the phone thicker, with no protruding camera and a 4000mAh battery

I don't care how much these renders coalesce with each other, I am not convinced that this is the premiere design designation for one of Samsungs major flagships.

OT:

I have been shouting many times that the schematic is plain fake. Just calculate the aspect ratio of the display. It's not even 16:9.

The schematic is fake, it should be clear as day now.

If S6 has a protruding camera (the iPhone 6 style) than they really are copycats. Also it seems to me that it's uglier than the one from the iPhone.

A protruding camera would be a design aspect to accommodate a larger camera module in a slimmer chassie.

I'd dont care if its 2 mm thinner, I probably wont even notice it
But I'd definitely care and notice for more significantly more battery

So Apple owns protruding cameras now? Besides theirs looks nothing like that ans vice versa.

Actually the Galaxy S series have always had protruding cameras

In fact the Galaxy S has a similar ring to the 6/6+, except more square

LOL the S4 and S5 already have a protruding camera.

It's not a design choice, it's a tough decision as a camera with huge sensor and 6-element lens can't fit easily into a 7mm chaissis.

Sorry for you. Every thin phone is likely to have a protruding Camera. It can only be Uglier to isheeps who must have the most uglier experience with iph 6. We know them.

Are you really trying to say Apple were first with the protruding camera. Lumia 1020 did it better!

apple not the first, but the first being mocked by having protruding camera and i believe some of samsung fans mocked the i6 or i6+ too

another failure of the year if Samsung keep up with this design.

I don't like the design too much, but I also can't see the iPhone in those designs. I mean, it's not as if the iPhone is the only phone with a metal frame. Or perhaps the Lumia 925 (for example) is an iPhone copy too?

Protruding phone = face with weird tumor = ugly

It's no more ugly than those cheap, copycat, uncalibrated hardware and software experience phones that your country likes to churn out.

I want rumours about it being water resistant (like the S5 mini and its exposed USB socket), and that it having the Type-C USB connector. We can already see that it won't be revolutionary (the non-swype fingerprint scanner is a nice improvement though).

Got frustrated with S6 design. Alpha and Note4 are much better.

The design doesn't too much, but good. Hope this will have metal frame. Not waiting for the design, instead in the new TouchWiz

In my opinion this is a disappointment, for f**k sake Samsung why do you have so much bezels. What the HELL....!!! I have the Note4 and I love this phone. But the Galaxy S line up has lost their glory...... Well I guess I will stay with the Note4 for now, Until hopefully the note5 has a better design that this S6
