This is the Samsung Galaxy S6 - according to case maker Spigen
Well-known accessory maker Spigen just revealed four of its cases that are specifically made for Samsung's upcoming and unannounced Galaxy S6. All four cases are currently listed on Amazon, and include what could be the S6 itself inside. Of course, since the handset is encased in Spigen's products, we can't take a proper look at it, but we can clearly see its rear camera next to an LED flash and a heart rate sensor, plus its front side - including a home button, and various sensors above the display.

The smartphone showed by Spigen kind of matches the images of the Galaxy S6 that we showed you earlier today, and yesterday.

We have to mention that Spigen previously revealed the designs of other unannounced (at the time) handsets, including the LG G3, the HTC One (M8), and the Google Nexus 5. With that in mind, we may very well have the real Galaxy S6 hidden here. At the same time, we can't be sure of anything just yet.

Samsung is expected to officially announce the Galaxy S6, as well as the Galaxy S Edge in early March. Both smartphones should be powered by octa-core Exynos 7420 processors (with no Snapdragon 810 variants in sight), sporting Quad HD displays. It's said that the screen of the S Edge will be curved on both sides. Well, we're definitely looking forward to seeing what Samsung has in store for us. Are you?

Project zero looking awesome! Redesigned from scratch baby! This will change everything as we know it since we've never seen this design before. Kudos to Samsung engineers/designers.

It's looks exactly like Note 4, just smaller one. But frankly speaking I like it

Looks more like the S5 to me
It has the S5's plastic side's instead of the Note 4's metal sides

Spigen has leaked many previous phones before

Hopefully this is just a mockup render based it off the S5
Also its running iOS now, most minimal bloat now!

I will admit the design is slightly growing on me. I do love the aluminum frame.

No you don't understand. That is a Galaxy S5 not S6. If that really was a Galaxy S6 Samsung would be very angry, and they have a right to be angry at Spigen.
Just look at the grey line of the GS5 going along the edge in image 1. That's definitely a Galaxy S5. Also the design of the white GS5 is exactly the same.
If Spigen really said this is the GS6 chances are Spigen and Sammy are playing a game against the customers.

Sorry, but you could do better. iPhones are changing design in every 2 years, tell me that back of 5 is same as 6. Why don't bring up Sony? Same design since 4 years.

But of course you couldn't resist bashing Apple in Samsung article, stupid fandroid's logic.

Sony's design hasn't been the same for 4 years...

The omnibalance design has been around for 2 years, and it's a beautiful method of design. Not to mention, it is still changed with every phone.

If it does turn out to be the real design, then Sammy deserves the loss of market share.

Usually case makers are only given the dimensions of the phone and hardware placements so they could prepare early without having to know the phone's final design. The renders you see is just an inspired look from the previous iterations.

its looks like bs the pics of the camera on the flat black perf case compared to the white case have 2 different cameras one with a big hump the other with non,
i believe this could be the placement of the camera but thats it.

Umm, nope, I am looking at all the pics and the camera looks exactly the same and different the s5, I think this is a close mockup if not the real thing.

It isn't the real design, remember when the S5 was supposed to have no hardware/capacitive buttons?

I don't care if you are an Apple guy, but that is one ugly apple you have for your icon!!! As far as commenting about the S6, you should wait until you see solid evidences...hopefully Samsungians have taken their heads out of their asses and wised up.

Good question... I don't see the cut out on the case. But the case is just a draft design. Nothing is finally until the device is out.

I never truly found a problem with Samsung's designs. They tend to be very ergonomic when holding it. Its very comfortable compared to other flagships. The biggest problem is not design, but the material used for the design.

67. GTRagnarok (Posts: 32; Member since: 22 Aug 2014)


It looks exactly the same as the S5 because that's what it is. The front of the phone in these pics is pixel-to-pixel the same as the renders on Spigen's website for the Galaxy S5 cases. Someone just took those pics and changed the back. It may be Samsung, but they're not going to use the exact same design for their next flagship unlike some fruity companies.

It looks exactly like an S5 but with a rotated camera and sensor. I guess I can deal with it only if it has the metal edges of the Note 4. Also, I'm dying for an opaque front screen, no lines or dots, just a plain/clear black or white screen (like on Sony's screens for example). I'd also love it if the back covers had a smooth matte finish (assuming that they'll be removable and plastic, that is). Not the faux leather or textured "bandaid" materials. It's not that hard to make something look good Samsung, I've been loyal since my first smartphone but I might not be if the S6 is nothing special.

8. GreatBigPhoney (Posts: 61; Member since: 27 Jan 2015)


It really wouldn't surprise me if Samsung's idea of a redesign was keeping the weird dimples that people were saying made it look like a band-aid, and basically just moving the heart rate monitor/flash from the bottom and turning it vertically on the side. Which in my personal opinion looks worse. I have a Note 4, and previously have had other Samsung devices, and will most likely continue to have Samsung devices, but I have almost zero faith in them when it comes to the design department. To each their own, but the little design choices they make, I don't often care for. Ex: The Note 4 isn't black, it's more of a dark gray and I don't like the little line pattern in the finish. I didn't like the weird mesh looking pattern they used on the white Note 3 or on the S4 either. Those are very small little details though. If they do move the speaker to the bottom, that's great. Hopefully the Note 5 will follow suit with that as I don't care for the speaker position on the 4.

"The note 4 isn't black, it's more of a dark gray"

Someone agrees! You have no idea how much this pisses me off and I don't even know why. When a phone is called Black based on colour, it should be BLACK in colour, not just a shade lighter, not charcoal, not Batmobile or graphite, but BLACK. Not enough companies make solid black phones, it's getting quite annoying actually :P

I just hope to see the S6 to look somewhat like the Galaxy Alpha, or better. I saw the Alpha in store, and heck, that thing was super beautiful. I like its design much better than the Note 4.

Lol this is going to be a total failure.

I currently own the Note 4 and the position of the sensors on the back are in perfect placement.

I tried to reach to the back with my finger as if it were like the design above and I must admit it wasn't as nice as the current placement (Note 4 & S5)

If this is the final design, the S5 will basically be a Note 4 mini with no stylus and bandaid back.

The M9 looks much nicer imo.

The G4 will also be changing their whole design scheme.

This is going to be an awesome year !

This is fake imo, the front side looks exactly like the S5, and the lock screen isnt even from android lol

Also, samsung ditched the giant USB 3 connector after S5, so that huge gap at the bottom doesnt make any sense at all.
