Image of older Samsung Galaxy S6 prototypes leak; back matches picture of Galaxy S6 cases

0. phoneArena posted on 28 Jan 2015, 23:45

One of our loyal PhoneArena readers has sent us a very interesting image that he claims shows older prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy S6. While we do recommend heading to the spice rack and grabbing a grain of salt to take the image with, there are some reasons to believe that this is the real McCoy. The position of the back camera and the flash/heart rate sensor matches up perfectly with the image of a case for Sammy's new flagship...

Looks okay, but could be more edged and less bezels would make it even look better. Looks like back cover is removable, i hope battery will be still removable too.

If that were S6, Samsung would fail again for sure.

The scale on that picture is all screwed up. It looks like the phone is a mini version of something. I'll reserve judgement until the Samsung announces the S6, and the blogosphere has time to do some hands on reviews.

I agree, it loos awful. And ill explain..first my background, I have been loyal Samsung fan since original Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile GS1),own GS1,GS1-4G,S2,S3,S4,Note 3,S5 and now own the Note edge. And i loved em all. Stock they are always top notch and Rooted they are otherworldly. Plus they always are a step ahead of krapple. Unfortunately the pics of early S6 are a step backwards imo, because it looks way too similar to krapples one hit wonder. WE DONT WANT CONFORMIST COPYCAT DESIGNS,I wonder if Sammy is having a little payback and that design is a thumb in the eye of i-junk. Either way i hope production model will be far different.

Looks too small to be the s6. It looks like it's for the A-line.

Where is the speaker?

Isn't it usually on the back of the phone?

Or will it be on the bottom?

This is what I took away from the leaks. The speaker isn't on the front or back, so down firing?

I don't think these pictures are real. Samy is going to rock with S6.

I personally don't like this. Hope it does look like this in final production. Looks ugly as hell in my opinion. Had gs2,gs3,note 3 and now the note 4. So im not just hating. In love with my note 4. Still getting used to the ins and outs over the note 3. I'm stuck on the note series. So I think that whatever the s6 looks like I'll just get the next note.

Who cares? After you through a case on it all that matter is display, performance, and battery. All that will be visible is the screen and camera lens.
