(Updated) More pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge leak

(Updated) More pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge leak
The most massive leak regarding the Galaxy S6 is already a fact - the AT&T-bound version of the flagship popped up in full glory. Judging from these pictures alone, it seems that Samsung has nixed both the microSD card slot and the removable battery, two traditional features of its top-tier devices. 

More pictures of the handset leaked afterwards, showing us not only the Galaxy S6, but its more compelling brother, the Galaxy S6 Edge. Apparently, just as we and many of you suspected, the display is sloping on both sides, unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, the screen of which overlaps the right side of the device only.

Right below, you'll see both devices turned on, pictured from the front and from the back. Take a gander at tell us what you think!

Update: Three new pictures popped up. We've added them right below. What's more, the original leaker of the pictures claims that the units he got his hands on are indeed the real deal. Both units seemingly run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop out of the box and seem to employ a new fingerprint scanning technique - swiping is no more, a simple tap on the sensor seems to do the job. The leaker also claims the phone "feels solid as heck" and that previous leaks have "not done this phone justice".

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

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.

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.

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

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

I don't think they could make a phone design he would like. Some just gotta hate no matter what....

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.

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

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.

its not a front facing speaker. its a serial code so samsung will track you down. think its only for testers.

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.

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?
