Image of sleek Samsung Galaxy S6 appears on Instagram, confirms metal build

Samsung supposedly started from scratch when designing the Galaxy S6, a program it called "Project Zero." The manufacturer has been struggling lately and Apple's tremendous calendar fourth quarter certainly didn't help.
We expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S6 unveiled on March 1st in Barcelona along with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. On the same date, the HTC One M9 and the HTC One max 2 should be unveiled. This is quite a pivotal year for Sammy. It can reverse its recent trends by coming through with a spectacular Galaxy S6, or it could disappoint and face strong competition globally.
We will be in Barcelona for MWC 2015 ready to provide you with the latest new product offerings, including the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9. Keep it right here!

although that pic doesn't show the protruding camera... to be fair and non-hypocritical... if samsung starts throwing its ads everywhere after March 1st without the protruding camera... i will be upset

This is totally different from how the leaked metal frames, renders, and schematics look. Not to mention there's no camera hump. Could it be that we've been looking at a fake design all along?

Or this could be the S6 Edge and not the regular S6. At closer look that looks like the curved display extending to the back cover. It's also consonant to the Edge's contour line shown in the Unpacked invitation. Those leaks about the regular S6 could still end up being the real thing.

It looks like just the sides are metal in the render at the top, and you can't see the back on the instagram shot. If they do do all metal, that'll turn some heads. Hopefully they do, because it doesn't just look nice, it also releases heat when the phone gets hot.

Looks like a skinny iPod Touch 4th Gen

So that's not the Edged screen we're looking at (of the S6 Edge), but the metal sides of the phone (on the S6)? Then I agree, it looks nothing like the rendered images of the S6. No camera hump? Well then, I'll be surprised.

They could still be pulling an Apple, remember the iPhone 6 renders that didn't show the protruding camera? Yeah I was quite disappointed with this so I think Sammy could be pulling the very same trick here.

Haha.. so this confirms that all the leak images with cases are all sort of speculations . Sammy doesnt have the reason to make this teaser if it wouldnt be the real side view look of the next galaxy .. im pretty excited :)

I think Samsung is actually quite good at keeping its devices secret until their official unveiling. As I recall, we had no clue what the Note 4 and Note Edge looked like until the announcement day. (we didn't even know if the Note Edge was real, for that matter). It could be that all of these iPhone-like leaks were faked, or maybe not. I thought the leaked designs were pretty good, but I'm also very excited to see a new design if they have one.

I don't like it,let's hope this is the edge... I didn't ask for a redesign just a change in materials.
