Is that the Samsung Galaxy S6 on this reality star's Instagram page? (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Upon closer inspection, we do think this is just a Samsung Galaxy Alpha. False alarm, guys!

Who is Caroline Stanbury, and why should we care? Well, we were tipped this morning by a loyal reader who suggested that we look at her Instagram page to view what could be the rear of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Apparently, Ms. Stanbury is a regular on a reality show called Ladies of London, found on Bravo.

After receiving the tip this morning, we checked out Ms. Stanbury's Instagram page and lo and behold, we found the picture of her holding a Samsung phone. Assuming that the picture was taken using a mirror, the camera and the flash do line up with the back of the Spigen case that we showed you last week.

So why would a reality television star get a Galaxy S6 ahead of the crowd? The answer is, for the same reason that we are talking about it now, publicity. Also, the rich and famous have a way of getting their hands on things before the blue collar crowd does. Whether it is the Samsung Galaxy S6 in Ms. Stanbury's hands or not, Samsung has sent out invitations for a March 1st event at MWC in Barcelona during which Sammy's flagship phone will be unveiled. We also should see the curved glass Samsung Galaxy S Edge unwrapped at that event as well.

Thanks for the tip!

Hmm....i'm baffled. I'd like to believe it's fake..but...alas, there it is right on her Instagram. Glad to see the camera/flash/heart rate sensor setup is just like the rumors. It looks so good.

I don't see how I was posting BS when I've never properly looked at the Alpha and haven't seen it's design....but...okay. Edit: Gahh, didn't see that part of your comment wasn't aimed at me. Sorry.

It's not a mirror selfie and its a galaxy alpha, it's a scene from her tv obviously sense the tv logic below the pic is not from instagram

Nope, the placement is different, that picture was taken on the mirror, if it's galaxy alpha, it should be on the left side of the camera, not right side

That's a white alpha and the image has been flipped.

It sure does look like the white Galaxy Alpha to me too.. hm.. http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-Alpha_id8618/photos?image=48532 Then again, it also looks like the 13th of 18 photos from the S6 renders. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Galaxy-S6-to-look-a-lot-like-iPhone-6-come-with-5.1-display-and-sealed-polymer-battery_id65573

Nvm the flash on the S6 render is to the right side of the camera.

48. engineer-1701d unregistered

its an alpha you can tell because the flash is on her right hand side and also the biggest giveaway is the phone jack on the top of the headphones

52. GeekMovement unregistered

Good catch with the headphone jack!

It's 100% the Galaxy Alpha. Take one of her photos, mirror it, and you can see the LED flash is on the same side as the Alpha (opposite the Galaxy S6 cases). Also, you can spot the notch towards the top where you pull the battery cover off.

55. GeekMovement unregistered

Yeah, the S6 render had the flash on the wrong side. (-:

So basically the alpha copied the 5/5s. The S6 is the version of the alpha that copies the 6/6 plus.
