Galaxy S6 blueprint and case maker renders pop up, teasing a slimmer, taller flagship
An eventual Galaxy S6 industrial blueprint is trying to finish off the flagship's full circle of leaks last month that included purported prototypes, dimension sheet, and case maker renders. The schematics seem to show a rather thin device with quite the rounded corners, and a taller home button, in line with what we heard about the eventual new touch-based fingerprint sensor in the S6

Last week during a conference call with investors, Samsung’s head of IR Robert Yi, said that the company will be releasing an “innovative premium handset” with a “special function”. We don't know if that mysterious function are the multiple back covers that add different features, but as far as the "premium" part goes, we can safely assume that the S6 might come with a metal-clad shell, as Mr Yi indirectly reassured investors that Samsung won't have any issues producing a metal chassis in large quantities.

Based on all those specs leaks, renders and prototypes so far, the case makers from Verus have created what can be considered a pretty accurate depiction of how the Galaxy S6 may end up looking. These might be a bit more accurate portrayals than the renders from Spigen, as that case maker usually pulls the trigger first, but when the real thing lands, there are often discrepancies with what Spigen posts beforehand. Let's not forget that some case makers obtain the exact dimensions early, as a leaked drawing earlier pegged the Galaxy S6 as having a 5.65 x 2.78 x 0.28in (143.52mm x 70.70mm x 7.19mm) chassis, which is pretty similar to the current S5 size, but thinner.

These latest renders, however, don't exactly coincide with the alleged blueprint, as the sensors there are shown to be on the left of the earpiece, instead of the right hand side, so make of it what you will. In any case, we will be at the MWC expo relaying the Galaxy S6 unveiling to you live, so not much more to wait until we see what Samsung will announce as a flagship this year.

Thanks for the tip!

i heartedly hope all these renders turn out fake, cuz if Samsung named the S6 Project Zero because it scrapped everything about past generations, all i can think of right now is it actually is Zero innovation, at least design-wise

texture, material, and color make difference you need to see it in real life to judge.

Or well... We had seen S6 cases imitating it, we now have a phone render imitating it.... Which brings a question, what if the "project zero" is just a realunched effort to copy Apple ?

I am not smoking.

What do you think the render above is resembling ?
http://www.apple.com/iphone-6/

So either this is a really bad joke of a fake or samsung is geared toward a really dumb fail with such phone.

YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS....the thing looks exactly like an iphone.. what are you smoking? 3 changes would make this thing an iphone.
1. remove heart rate monitor
2. change the home button/scanner from oval to circle
3. make the camera sensor and flash round and slide it to the left top corner.

FWIW Project Zero refers to TW, not the phones themselves.

I don't see any holes on the back for speakers and also can't see any front facing speakers.. so I really don't think this renders are true

Maybe samsung might use speakers that are positioned at the bottom like the iphone and many other android smartphones...i like to call them as BUTT firing speakers!!

You look at these Cases and you see no Holes on them for the Speakers on the Galaxy S6,so have Samsung moved the Speakers to the Front of the phone or not?One of these phones looks like the iPhone 6,and just hope we don"t get Samsung & Apple Back in Courts again

There appears to be two cut outs on pic 7 which would suggest a speaker on the bottom as on the galaxy note 3

I do hope the bezels aren't real

I don't really care about the design, I'm sure it's more premium than the renders might try to suggest, but unless they're using these thicker bezels for the IP ratings, I'd rather they improve on design engineering a bit.

The dotted details ruin the looks. It should be looking smooth!
