Alleged Samsung Galaxy S6 images show a completely assembled and running phone

Why do we say ‘allegedly’? It’s a leak that looks similar to previously leaked parts, and we cannot vouch for its authenticity or veracity, as it comes from Iranian blog Toranji that does not have that rich of a track record.
It does strike a couple of familiar, typical Samsung notes - a wallpaper that looks to be made in the Samsung style, Android 5.0 Lollipop-styled notifications, the signature Samsung design with a large physical home key up front..
You can also see a few of the new elements - the metal design of the frame in particular. The change, however, is far from ground-breaking, and, at least from this leak, does not seem to live up to the promise of Samsung going back to the drawing board and reshaping the Galaxy S6 completely to ‘Project Zero’ level.
Meanwhile, let us remind you that current speculations claim the Galaxy S6 will come with a 5.2” or 5.5” Quad HD (1440 x 2560-pixel) Super AMOLED display, a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 system chip, as well as Android 5.0 Lollipop. It's also worth noticing that the latest speculations from Chinese blogs suggest that Samsung might release two 'flagship' devices in early 2015 - one with an 'edge' screen like the Galaxy Note Edge, and another, traditional one with less inspiring looks, but at a more affordable price.
We’ll keep on looking for more information about the Galaxy S6, but at the moment don’t forget that all of these early leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Samsung Galaxy S6 OS: Android 7.0 Nougat, 6.0 Marshmallow, 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop View Full specs
- Display 5.1" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 7 Octa, Octa-core, 2100 MHz
- Storage 128 GB
- Battery 2550 mAh(23h 3G talk time)

This design trend needs to be dumped. Home button at the bottom, centered below the screen, has always been an iPhone ripoff and needs to stop. Bezels, bezels, bezels. Far too much body on the phone. They needs to take a leaf from LG's book on how to design a large-screen phone without the phone being enormous.

I know how the iPhone 6 leaks worked. All the diehard iPhone fans claimed they were fake because Apple would never put out such an ugly design. Then when the phone released exactly as pictured, they all gushed over how beautiful the design looked.

What are the chances of going back to "Zero" and ending up with the same old Hardware Home Button ? The chances for this are 1 in 456,000, 256 ! An incredible coincidence ! OK, just kidding but you get my point, losing the old fashioned Home have Button first developed in 1983 (?) might have been a nice Start for the new Samsung. They are going to take a lot of heat if this looks like an oversized , metal S4. Although a S4 SIZED Device with upgraded Camera, SOC, 3000mah battery might be nice. Anyway, many including me are looking at S6 for great hardware, SOC,.Camera, fewer Bells and Whistles. I hope they get it right, and a Compact Version also. Wish S6 was smaller than 5.5" Screen, but Compact will solve that.

There is a simple rule in the world of leaks. You watch them, and if most of them point out SAME design etc 99% of time they turn out to be true. Now if a leaks come out totally different than all of the others about the same phone it usually turns out that one different leak was fake. This seems totally legit since its 99% just a pre production units and not final units with perfect polished design.
