Samsung Galaxy S6 leaks claim 5.5-inch screen, all aluminum body, but it might not be the only flagship

Samsung Galaxy S6 leaks claim 5.5-inch screen, all aluminum body, but it might not be the only flagship
The Galaxy S6 is expected to get officially unveiled early in 2015, however, this time around, Samsung is taking design seriously with a complete overhaul: first images of an assembled Galaxy S6 has leaked out showing an all-aluminum unibody with a colorful plastic front. These are two big changes: the aluminum body comes as a welcome change from the uninspiring plastic case of the S5, while the color on the front is also a new thing for the flagship Samsung series.

The vivid ‘fluorescent yellow’ paint job on this first Galaxy S6 leaked unit shows that the company is not afraid to experiment with some bold tonalities.

Most interestingly, though, after earlier reports about Samsung still trying to decide between a 5.2” and 5.5” screen size, this one is much more conclusive: the Galaxy S6 (codenamed SM-G430) will feature a 5.5-inch display, according to it. Interestingly, other mentioned specs include a 1080p display and a Snapdragon 801 system chip, both reserved for upper-mid-range devices, but falling a bit short of flagship phone expectations.

However, we’re now hearing speculation about a Galaxy Note Edge-like sibling to the Galaxy S6, a sort of a premium version of the handset, that is rumored to get a 5.3” QHD (1440 x 2560-pixel) AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 810 system chip, and 4GB of RAM. This handset might even get an iris scanner, a long-rumored feature that has not yet arrived in a mass-sold commercial smartphone.

Could Samsung restart the flagship series with such a radical new handset? Let's not forget that all those are merely early-stage rumors and they may or may not be true, so do take them with a grain of salt. Also, stay tuned, as we’ll certainly be seeing more rumors and leaks in the coming weeks.

I think it's not, more like a midranger with generic Samsung design.
Wher's project zero, new looks etc?
S6 will have eye scanner and not a radio? One more feature to turn off. At least 20% of people would like a radio, guys #thinkagain

There nothing to be mad. If Samsung S6 don't appeal to the masses their profit will sink lower.

Hater come to spit at Samsung but complain when others bash back at Apple. Hater are just insecure people. Nothing more nothing less.

The phone's hardware is being tested in a prototype/test body - that's all. This has nothing to do with the final design. How dumb are you to think this is the design of a s6.

Yeah? And every time a leaked pic showed up, it didn't look like what was eventually released.

What we actually heard last year was that all those iPhone 6 leaks were fake, because Apple would never release such an ugly phone.

Exactly, this is a trick just like the Note 4 which turned out to be the best looking mobile phone to date. And Samsung specifically said they're doing it new.

Seriously samsung? When i heard of project zero I thought sammy will change their design to match with all other georgeous devices in the market right now. Sammy should learn from the chinese manufacturers. Just look at meizu mx4 pro, oppo find 7, one plus one and some huawei phones. They look stunning with some hardcore specs. This leak says sammy is stuck with their ZERO LEVEL DESIGN and will never go any further from ZERO.

This is NOt the Galaxy S6

The S6 could be something like:
3 GB of RAM (beleive Note 5 will get 4 GB)
SD 810 clocked above 3 Ghz (estimated 3.1 Ghz)
5.2" - 5.3" screen QHD Amoled Display
USB 2.0 w/ fast charging
Thin bezzels (similar to S4)
3.000-3.100 mAh battery capacity
Android 5.0.5
IP68

I really don't know what and how you got the information. But I can assure you that there will not be any A57 cores running at 3Ghz.
They will run at around 1.8-2.0Ghz range depending upon process.
So forget about 810 at 3.0Ghz, that's simply not feasible.

We can blame Samsung all we want about stuffing the channel with bad-but-good-enough smartphones but I believe part of the reason why all the hype surrounding these devices seems to be slowing down is because of these "leaks" that are churned by the daily.

I couldn't care less what the outcome is but I think this is something worth noting.

What does ugly have to do with it. Ugly didn't seem to affect iPhone 6 sales.

109. darkkjedii (Posts: 21204; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)


Ugly, just like beauty, is subjective. Millions think the 6 is beautiful, myself among them. It's looks, performance, size, and eco system make for a compelling package. Hence the sales. To me samsung makes good looking phones in the galaxy line, the N4 looking the best, but could look better, beauty is subjective.

104. tedkord (Posts: 11626; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)


I don't want capacitive buttons. In fact, I'd like not only the home button, but the back and multi-task buttons to be mechanical and capacitive - less chance of accidentally hitting one that way.

So going by only the front of the phone, you're going to pass judgement (assuming it's even real)?

Then how do you judge this picture?

There's no way this is the GS6.. If anything, it's probably one of their mid-range phones
