The G430 is not the codename for the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S6's codename is SM-G920F. The SM-G430 is an entirely different phone line. Do your research to first PhoneArena before you post articles with so much wrong information.

Wow! S6 is jumping to 5.5 inches, so what'll happen to my next note5, i hope they don't ditch the home button.

If this is the actual s6, then Stevie Wonder must be the head of Samsungs design team. Ray Charles is the head of Apples.

How could you insult two outstanding great legends?

I know, no insult meant, but Cmon..

Ray Charles is class, no short comings there, not like apple IMO.

A 5.5 inch phone with those bezels would be huge lol!

So, why are they making the screen bigger on this phone? They should just stay at 5 inches. If they are going to make it 5.5, they may as well add an S pen to it and call it a Note. The note 2 was 5.5".

So, you think 5.5 inch phones with huge bezels are a "huge lol." The truth comes out.

If this is S6 final design, then Samsung you need prepared another more lower sales.

Even if Samsung do fix the design, the bigger problem is still touchwiz. I don't event consider touchwiz to be android, it just s**tty and laggy.

Speaking as a Note 4 owner, typing this on my Note 4 right now, I can tell you that you're completely wrong.

I really doubt this is the final design of the GS6. Samsung has done some questionable things lately. However, taking steps backward in design and no improvement in flagship specs are not among them.

Looks like the s4 to me. I'm sure it won't be this she'll when it's released unless Sammy has lost their effing minds.

No way on earth it is coming with an 801 processor (805 minimum if not the 810). And I can't see samsung having bezels that big if it is to be 5.5 inches. FAKE

Being this is are serious hobby, and that I'm a "little" older than the average kid saving his allowance or the kid that's the whopper flopper on here. I have/had numerous phone's with thin bezels like the Mate 7, Sharp Aqous and let me say handling and use of these phone's are very problematic. The no bezel cry is from people that's not used a phone like those in day to day. You name the phone, I've had it. However I keep coming back to my S5 or Note 4. The software is flushed out, the support from OEM, to carrier's to the development community is unparalleled.

You do need some bezel, but not that much.

I do understand where you are coming from. I have not used those phones, but I do have an LG G3, and I am quite enjoying the thin bezels it sports. It makes the 5.5" phablet quite manageable for even a person with small hands, like myself. The thin bezels make the 5.5" screen phone feel more like a 5" screen one. It also just looks fantastic seeing so much screen taking up the face of the phone. I have a case on the phone, but I often find myself taking it off just to be able to see the excellent screen-to-body ratio.

In light of my experience with these thinner types of bezels, I wouldn't mind slightly thinner top and bottom bezels on large screened phones, such as the rumored LG G4. But, I agree with what tedkord says, some bezel is needed.

I love that someone somewhere in the samsung testing facility used an iPhone to take pictures of this prototype... That's just awesome!
