Don't judge before you actually see the phone PLEASE. And imagining it with metal it actually looks pretty good.

I only judge about what i see. I hope it´s a Fake,but that what i see is Ugly. Sry

oh u dont have to be sorry (thanks for the sarcasm). I don't think that is fake. We've seen and heard enough rumors to know that is not fake. You only judge about what you see? There are many things in the universe that you cannot comprehend. The statement you made goes against all the great scientific discoveries or mysteries i should say of quantum physics and all the scientists who are in the forefront of exploring the unknown you fear. My point is don't be so arrogant. Life in general.

Tizen007....you are wrong!!
Biernot is merely saying that they don't like what they see. Are you trying to use Jedi mind tricks on them? You are saying they are wrong because their opinion doesn't match yours....well neither does mine, and your jedi mind tricks won't work on me oh learned one!!
I really like the device on the left..thumbs up to Samsung if this is the S6. Thumbs down if the device on the right is the S6 based on a ground up design, because it looks much the same as any other Samsung device to me.
It seems to me that they've taken the basic S5 design, added the glass and the flattened edges from the Z2 and the ends from the iPhone 6. This isn't a new design, it's a mish mash of different design features from other phones.
The phone on the left however is a new design, and should be applauded if it turns out to be genuine.

Trash and my precious Nokia Lumia 1520 will run circles around this child's toy. Mark my words.

Tizen007 .. In the article they ask us "what do you think?" Biernot awnsers that question with "So ugly".
How the f**k are you able to say "Don't judge before you can actually see the phone"? The f**king pictures are right there. Yes you can't see every detail but who the f**k are you to tell others that they cannot have an opinion about what they see on the pictures?
Idiots like you piss me off so bad.

I do not mind the physical design, i just hope they come up with a better looking Touchwiz, close to Vanilla lollipop, stripping down the bloatware isn't enough.

People identify BMW vehicles because of the peculiar design they have. Over the past few years Samsung's design language has smeared into the general public. Now many people identify the design as Samsung. Much like the BMW analogy, which is why Samsung cannot radically change the design because in that case they would be starting from scratch.

Well said. BTW I might consider it bcoz its going to have better display, faster storage, slimmer profile, better processor than competition.
71. medicci37 (Posts: 1271; Member since: 19 Nov 2011)
Have you heard of project Zero? There's a lot of people who wouldn't mind Samsung starting from scratch when it comes to design
84. tnuc2014 (Posts: 225; Member since: 12 Sep 2014)
No they don't, they choose BMW because they are the ultimate driver's car....that's a bad analogy!
"which is why Samsung cannot radically change the design because in that case they would be starting from scratch"
So when they say redesigned from the ground up, they're not redesigning from scratch then?

It is obvious that this is not the real deal, look at the black bezels in the screen in the galaxy s6 edge that can't be the real deal lol also touchwizz is completely the same as the one in the note 4 i doubt they will keep the same look and not change it
62. RoboticEngi (Posts: 604; Member since: 03 Dec 2014)
I don't think they could make a phone design he would like. Some just gotta hate no matter what....
107. LebronJamesFanboy (Posts: 165; Member since: 23 Mar 2013)
I find it hilarious that people are trying to defend the design.
I actually was considering buying the GS6, but not with an ugly design like that.
Samsung, two words: Fire Somebody!

Right?! WTF with those front-facing speakers placement?! I sincerely hope that these leaks are fake.
81. engineer-1701d (Posts: 3271; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
the speakers are perfect for quad based speaker and gives you a full surround sound by being able to change the volume at each speaker at each corner
86. tnuc2014 (Posts: 225; Member since: 12 Sep 2014)
I'm, not sure about that!
I have a Pioneer cinema system at home and two speakers are behind me, with 4 speakers in front of me. That is surround sound, not 4 speakers pointing directly at you.
125. drunkenjay (Posts: 860; Member since: 11 Feb 2013)
its not a front facing speaker. its a serial code so samsung will track you down. think its only for testers.
53. ravi5695 (Posts: 74; Member since: 11 Feb 2011)
no.. its not ugly.. i think it's looking good..
126. ravi5695 (Posts: 74; Member since: 11 Feb 2011)
yeah.. seriously... It's different.. not iPhone-esque as some are claiming..
63. rd_nest (Posts: 1593; Member since: 06 Jun 2010)
It' an engineering prototype, what do you expect?
Can't believe educated people here don't read the thread and just comment on pictures. Let me take the pain to copy-paste what 'reefur' mentioned - read carefully and then comment :
this IS the s6 whether you like it or not albeit not final version...
Pictures have not done this phone justice, it's actually pretty nice...
The pictures don't do it justice. It feels thin and solid in hand...
No lag...UI is classic Samsung garbage. Slightly different than Note 4. But buttery smooth...
Definitely glass back, feels solid as heck, runs android 5.0.2...
Easy conclusion: It's an engineering/testing prototype, not final design. He says its looks solid and feels very good in hand. In any case it doesn't matter how it looks now, retail unit would look like the one in Samsung's posters that has been circulating for sometime now.
89. tnuc2014 (Posts: 225; Member since: 12 Sep 2014)
Everything you have just said sounds very plausible, but it is based on the assumption that this guys is actually telling the truth!!
Besides, even if he is, what if Samsung deliberately leaked some pre prod phones to throw everyone of the scent?
Neither of these devices looks like the official teaser image appearing on US carrier sites, so how do you explain that?
67. maherk (Posts: 3493; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
The S6 is meh, the Edge is awesome. We always dreamed about having a bezelless phone, and drooled over the concept of a screen wrapping the trim of the phone, but now since it is Samsung who is offering this everyone is hating it.
Still, even if it is ugly, i'd rather have a super specd phone over a good looking one. I am here to enjoy the features that it offers, not take it on a date and make love to it.
69. ankitp (Posts: 138; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
don't you think s6 edge and note 4 bit edge bit gimmicky ??why do you pay extra $100 or more for wrap up display which has nothing more to offer then normal ones,i think these phones are only for people to show off
70. ankitp (Posts: 138; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
unless we get full potential of these displays ,these phone are just a showpiece for rich dumb people
72. ankitp (Posts: 138; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
and will you make love with your edge?,it's so sizzling slim edgy hot
2. frankg (Posts: 152; Member since: 14 May 2014)
Look like the same old touchwiz. Also the Camera hump, also seen in other leaks, is real. That is the only part on my Note 4 that I don't like. It look horrible on this demo model.
Make the phone thicker and make the camera sit flush with the back and slap a bigger battery in!
3. turk_az (Posts: 39; Member since: 11 May 2012)
Now i understand meaning of project zero
ZERO change compared to previous models.
well you had a good run Samsung but now you don't deserve to be on top.
11. Tizen007 (Posts: 575; Member since: 07 Jan 2014)
IDK WHAT you are talking about. Let me list things we already know that has changed:
Material - Plastic to Metal
Home button - enlarged vertically
Touchwiz - trimmed down
Bezel - thinned
thickness - thinned
memory - enlarged
display - 2x better
charging - fast, wireless charging
processor - better, high tech

People do not understand that making minimal changes keeps a company successful, why do you think Apple and Samsung is the top selling manufacturers? Subtle changes, people can actually see that it is an iPhone or Galaxy, plus it saves a lot of money by decreasing the costs of altering factories and wasting money every year on a completely new design that must be marketed.
56. ngo2dd (Posts: 896; Member since: 08 Jul 2011)
Brand recognition and lots of money is what makes them money.
109. LebronJamesFanboy (Posts: 165; Member since: 23 Mar 2013)
Making minimal changes keeps companies successful ONLY WHEN they have a very solid, winning formula ALREADY IN PLACE!
With Samsung's declined performance in the last earnings report, change is necessary.
Do you not understand that design is basically a hidden value added for the consumer? Especially with subsidized pricing. Regardless, the phone will cost the same. But with that same phone, you can either have a stellar design or something garbage. Samsung must understand that making just OKAY designs will no longer fly in today's competitive environment.
18. turk_az (Posts: 39; Member since: 11 May 2012)
about hardware part i agree with and i have no complain about that
touchwiz trimmed down but look of it is still the same
material is good add but design is the same and all i hate about this phone right now is the Fing Desing.
No micro SD - No water Resistance + no removable battery is Huge step back .
most of the people only complained about Touchwiz bloat and Same design for year what we get with project zero is Exact same design and touchwiz with minor changes
23. Tizen007 (Posts: 575; Member since: 07 Jan 2014)
The only reason we phone geeks want so much change in products from a company is because the release intervals of new products are short. Would you want radical changes to your next BMW model? I dont think so because many people decide to buy a BMW for its brand image. And how do you identify the brand image? : Design. Then do you think BMW can radically change the design that everyone identifies the brand with? No. Same goes with Samsung, Apple, and Sony or any other manufacturer out there.
39. turk_az (Posts: 39; Member since: 11 May 2012)
Adding cars design to this argument is stupid because cars have so many aspects and parts to be changed but still keep the soul of the brand . like lights, hood, doors, top, front and back , rims , windows, interior and so on....
but phones you have just front ( Display panel ) and side and back, if they keep the same design language for years all of their phones gonna look the same with minor changes
i like samsung and use their products in my house , all i hope this is fake and final design is somehow different
77. maherk (Posts: 3493; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
You just contradicted yourself. You admit that phones aren't like cars, and it is hard for them to change a lot in a phone and stay true to your DNA like you can with cars.
YETTTT, you are complaining that the S6 looks like a Samsung phone. The curves, home button, bezels, trim, speaker placement, flash and heart monitor placement, thickness, ARE ALL CHANGED, and here you are complaining that nothing is changed.

Well, if you talk about BMW, remember Chris Bangle and what he did with design of E65 7 series in 2001.
He made revolution in design and everybody hated him. But than they found out it was a good thing so 5 series got same design...
With that revolutionary design he put BMW on first place in car industry as most premium brand.
So, sometimes it is not bad thing to try something new...

The basic phone now as very fast 32gb and you can easy buy upto 128gb, so the lag sd card is now not needed
26. Tizen007 (Posts: 575; Member since: 07 Jan 2014)
no i'm a U of T pre med. Why do you ask Muayyad? Wait, do you have a problem with me liking Samsung? If that is the case you clearly have a problem. IDK where you live but I live in a democratic country
43. JetMK (Posts: 90; Member since: 31 Jan 2015)
Body - It might very well turn out to be metal, but have to admit, it sure does look like glass on the back similar to the new Xiaomi Note phablets.
73. M4th3u54ndr4d3 (Posts: 59; Member since: 03 Sep 2013)
That's not the Project Zero!
That's just some improvements!
90. tnuc2014 (Posts: 225; Member since: 12 Sep 2014)
How do you know these are the things that have changed? You are basing all of your so called knowledge on hearsay, rumours and leaks!!
What if Samsung has leaked all of this mis-information to throw everyone of the scent. Do you think perhaps that if they have spent a whole year totally redesigning a phone, that they would want it leaked pre-launch.
If it was me I would throw all kinds of pre prod samples out there and wow everyone with the final design. If you think back to last year, right up to the launch day, everyone was excited for a new beautiful design and were ultimately disappointed. What if we all based our expectations on this, set our hopes low, and were awe struck when a beautiful never before seen device is launched?
Just a thought!!

Apple left Samsung no chance, they did the protruding camera, so Samsung had to do it to the S6.
Will it be as successful as the iphone? let's wait and see.
29. rockers123 (Posts: 135; Member since: 08 Sep 2013)
Go checkout the S2 for protruding camera?
30. ankitp (Posts: 138; Member since: 19 Feb 2013)
well apple was not 1st to do protruding camera,samsung already did with their galaxies
41. Hashed (unregistered)
True, the S2 had a protruding cam, but Samsung fixed that on the S3,S4, and S5, Why going back again to protruding cam on S6?
79. maherk (Posts: 3493; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
The S3, S4, S5, Note 2, Note 3, Note 4 and many more Galaxies all have protruding cameras. It's nothing to be proud off, but it is ignorant of you to believe that Apple came up with it and Samsung followed.
