More Samsung Galaxy S6 design details leak - taller, slimmer, with a new set of ports

We can also see that Samsung is keeping the design in line with the tradition, as the schematics portray the same rectangle with rounded corners shape, with the power button placed to the right and volume buttons to the left sides of the device.
The schematics confirm the new placement of the camera flash and heart rate sensor, which have been put to the left of the camera lens, instead of below. Additionally, the bottom part of the case has as many as three different holes cut into it, which could mean the interactive cover leak we previously reported on could be closer to the truth than expected. Remember, the Galaxy S5 had only a flap that sealed two microUSB 2.0 and microUSB 3.0 against water. There are also two holes cut on the top, right next to each other - they are probably for the headphone jack and IR.
According to the latest intel, the Galaxy S5 will sport a 5.5-inch Quad-HD display. While it won't be a problem for Samsung to fit a larger display without significantly growing the chassis, its purported width seems a little small for the occasion. Other rumored specs are an Exynos 7440 64-bit octa-core SoC, 3GB of RAM, and a 20MP main camera. The handset is said to be constructed of glass-topped plastic covered by a metal frame, akin to the Sony Xperia handsets.
On one of the photos, you can see how the case maker imagined the Galaxy S6's front panel. Essentially, we see a straightened-out Galaxy S5 lookalike with notably thinner bezels and a slightly larger screen. Although we doubt this is the final word on the Galaxy S6 design, it has to be close to what we'll be seeing at MWC in March.

It cannot be 5.5 inch. Can't you see the width is 70 mm. Even the G3 is around 75mm with 5.5 inch screen. The s5 was around 72-73 mm wide. So this phone is either 5 inch or 5.1 inch, though I predict 5.1 inch with slimmer bezels fhan s5

SO you're saying Samsung can' fit a 5.5" display inside those dimensions? Why? Because Apple couldn't? Samsung managed to put a 5.7" display into a phone that is smaller than the 6+ by simply making the bezels smaller.

Dude LG G3 is the smallest 5.5" phone and I didn't even mention apple here. Let's do some math. 5.5 inch is 13.86 cm. Now on a 16:9 aspect the width of the display is 68 mm. They would need 1mm bezel on both sides to make that feasible which is virtually impossible. Even extremely small bezels like G3 are 3mm.

Since Apple finally came up with big screens, I doubt you would consider anything else than Apple now.. You are institutionalized in Apple's ecosystem and their success stories. For me I can switch on anything since I am not focused or institutionalized with any brand. Now thinking to get BB passport, I sold my gifted iP6 for BB passport (Already sold, yet to buy)

Interactive covers, metal chassis, little increase in dimensions despite larger display, proposedly improved camera, USB 3.0, I like to think this is more than "meh"

They should ban you. All you do is troll and contribute nothing meaningful to discussions.

Where is the new design? I hope they changed the plastic for metal this time. That would be nice. But I think it's time to let this design go and start from scratch.

i wouldnt mind some plastic, as long as it doesnt look galaxy s5, the design didnt appeal, if the back cover is metal so be it but if its plastic i wouldnt mind either as it would mean it can be replaceable. being said i hope the s6 would look more premium and the the less premium looking device should be the active since plastic will be sturdier than aluminium
