Samsung Galaxy S6 leak turns out to be fake

Samsung Galaxy S6 leak turns out to be fake
A leaked photograph allegedly showing a prototype of the Samsung Galaxy S6, was circulated throughout the internet on Tuesday. With extremely thin bezels, the picture supposedly showed the results of Samsung's Project Zero, a redesign of its flagship handset from scratch. But before you decide whether or not you like the looks of the phone, we should tell you one important thing. The picture is a fake.

As it turns out, the leaked photo supposedly showing off the Samsung Galaxy S6 is actually a photoshopped picture of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha. You can see in a side-by-side comparison that the fingers holding the "Galaxy S6" are the exact same fingers seen on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha photograph, and are also in the same exact position.

In addition, the fake photoshopped device looks too similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5 to be legit. If Project Zero is a complete redesign of Sammy's flagship from scratch, we wouldn't expect it to look like anything else the manufacturer has produced before.

You really need to get out more. There are more things to life than being a lame troll on a tech website.

But everybody cares about the best smartphone on the market, the Galaxy Note 4. Even you, because it's causing you so much posterior pain.

Honestly I am saying this with no disrespect, I am absolutely not interested on Galaxy phones so I don't care if the leak was real or not..

Yeah, when someone doesn't like what everyone likes is considered a troll here. When you raise a debate or a simple argument, everybody will think you're a TROLL. Some commenters may characterize a post as trolling, while others may regard the same post as a legitimate contribution to the discussion, even if controversial. Like any pejorative term, it can be used as an ad hominem attack, suggesting a negative motivation.

"anyone" who disagrees with you is not a troll, anyone who spends his time and resources to say something just to annoy other people where they have gathered to talk about their interests is considered a troll. you are not interested in Samsung? check. you don't like galaxy phones? check. you don't care about galaxy's leaks? check. this is ok until this one: Do you take your time to show your hate to anyone who likes Samsung phones? check. this is why they call you a troll. btw I'm not a samsung fan.

wait a second, my first comment was that I am not interested on samsung phones. (that's my opinion and on topic) how is this hating on people who like samsung phones? i got some responds from other users telling me how should I live my life, what should I like and not like. If some people in here have a problem with other peoples preferences then is their problem, not mine

No one cares on your opinion here whether you hate or like Samsung just shut up.

Watch out for the Samsung police

Honestly I don't want people to care about my opinion, and I don't care about yours but If that's the case why you are so mad? Also telling to somebody to shut up on an Internet blog is an act of a coward. You should only tell to someone to shut up face to face like a man otherwise save it for later...

If you don't want people to care about your opinion, why express it?
