Casemaker Verus claims that these Galaxy S6 case renders show us the real device with its actual dimensions
It's been raining Galaxy S6 leaks these past few days, and today is shaping up as no exception. As has become the tradition, the two week interim leading up to the unveiling of a major smartphone is about when we start getting some more credible information, and casemaker Verus claims it has exactly that.

According to what we're told by Verus, the below images are based on "renderings of how the GS6 would actually look like." Furthermore, Verus claims that these are the actual dimensions of the Galaxy S6 (not that you can tell much from a render) and we're given to understand that whatever parts of the device itself are visible are supposedly the real deal. Apparently, these details were obtained from "a credible source" by the company's South Korea-based team.

Disclaimers aside, the story here is quite similar to the one Spigen gave us. At this point in time, all evidence points towards a relocation for the cutout with the LED flash and heart rate monitor to the side of the camera sensor; new, separate volume up and down buttons (not a rocker) on the left hand side, and a seemingly imposing camera bulge on the back. This last part may have been made necessary by the device's thinner-than-ever profile, which rumors put at 0.28 inches (7.19 mm).

This is the second batch of case renders we receive from Verus. We've attached them all below, so go ahead and take a peek.

I've been a Samsung fan for a long time, but I just replaced my S5 with G3. Soon switch back to S6 when it gets released, bro. ;)

What do you mean pay? I sincerely like the innovation of Samsung, and the fact that no other brands can replace it, encouraging me even more to be proud of a Samsung fan.

May I ask, do you like any other phone manufacturers?

Of course, I do. Besides Samsung, LG is my brand too. But Samsung is my special.

Sammy's chief-in-design got fired due to S5's EPIC FAIL, therefore, the next one can't do anything else than copying iPhone shamelessly.

Can you stop this boring debate about who copying who? It's getting old now. iPhone was a rip-off of LG Prada, if you wanna go on.

Epic Fail?
S5 was the best-selling phone of 2014!

From the looks of it, the S6 has more aesthetically pleasing antennae cutouts, and a more ergonomic grip than the iPhone 6. It's nice when companies use each others' ideas and improve on them. Maybe Apple will use those ideas and improve on them for their next design.

But let's not have a rational discussion about that. Let's just show our blind loyalty to our pet brand, form strong irrational opinions, and be ignoramuses. That makes for more interesting discussion :-)

That's a silly discussion, not a rational one.

Building on your competitors features is one thing, but copying designs in the name of "improvement" is ridiculous. Design is the one place where you can show originality and creativity to create a signature look for your company's product. Leave it to Samsung to take the easy route.

Wut? What exactly is Samsung copying? Can you point out ONE thing?

Unless you are going to argue that rectangles with rounded edges are the greatest invention of human kind, that is. If that is the case, you win.

How the hell can anyone be excited about this phone's design?

If they were excited for the potential specs, I can get that. But this showing here just tells me that Samsung is pretty lazy. They promised a better and new design, and this showing is better, but not as drastic of a change that people hoped for.

How can anyone be excited about any phone's design? They are all slightly different variations of the same slab shape.

What kind of drastic change in design could we wish for? A triangle shaped phone? I don't care about the design, I care about specs. Would still be very happy with a plastic cover. And I really hope there will be a removable battery.

I agree completely. The whole point of Project Zero was a complete redesign, but the front looks fairly unchanged and the back doesn't look much different. Their biggest change is a complete rip off the iPhone. I hope all the rumors are fake

Way too much bezel.

The bezel size is changing from image to image. So they can be easily called fake.

not just bezel.. just take a look at camera module.. it goes from 2cm width to 1 cm ... they didnt even spend 5 minute to make these fake pictures.

The front sensors above the samsung logo are different on the first three pictures compared to the rest. Also, there is no way that top bezel is gonna be twice the size of the current one.
Sorry. ....fake

Also with all the chassis leaks we are lead to believe that there are SIM & SD card slots on the sides yet in picture 11 i see no sign of one on that see through case. Oh & the headphone jack seems to be back at the top instead of the bottom as per the leaked chassis.

I like the case!! It's what's inside that's the problem.

Bezel - Camera Hump - exactly the same look as every other Samsung phone.

Good luck with this one Samsung...if indeed these pictures are real....and here's where I get to my real point...these are pictures released to throw everyone off the scent.

I think the S6 will be something quite special....and that's coming from an iPhone 6 user.

yea...it's going to look like the iPhone 6...and?? it's not like they cared when they thought of the design in the first place. they were inspired and left it at that. Samsung looks at it like hey here's an iPhone that runs android...you want it?

I'd like to know why the Spigen and Verus cases have the power button in different locations. It's much higher on the Spigen than the Verus. Something shady is going on here with one, or both of these "leaks".

The fact that half the iSheep scream "COPY!" and the other half scream "Same old crap!" makes me believe neither is a correct assessment.

The design has clearly evolved out of Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4. Erase paint from the Note 4's sides and add curves, and you get the S6's body. Or just add curves to Galaxy Alpha's body, and you get the S6's body. The difference is that the body is going to be unibody aluminum, instead of removable carbonite back, which was a trade-off for removable battery and micro-SD slot.

At least Samsung tries with ergonomics. The same cannot be said for iPhones, which have progressively become uglier every generation. (I think the iPhone 4 looks best, then the iPhone 5. The iPhone 6 is the ugliest and most generic-looking, plus coping HTC's antenna outlets..)
