Samsung Galaxy S6 prototype possibly photographed

Samsung Galaxy S6 prototype possibly photographed in bubble wrap packaging
While Samsung is already allowing us to take a look at one side of its Galaxy S6 Edge, the regular Galaxy S6 remains a mysterious device. However, the S6 may have been revealed today in some hands-on photos that reportedly show an AT&T-bound "prototype or test model."

Posted in a Galaxy S6 thread over at the XDA Developers forum, the new photos show what could be an S6 inside bubble wrap packaging. Update: more photos showed up, this time without wrapping (hooray!) - see them below.

We can see that the device has metallic sides, while the logo on its front, below the earpiece, is covered. There's a large front-facing camera on the upper right side of the phone (which makes sense, as the S6 is expected to have the same 5 MP front-facing shooter of the Note 4). The XDA user who posted these images says the handset "seems" to have a "glass back and front."

Samsung will finally unveil the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge this Sunday (March 1) at Mobile World Congress 2015. Both new smartphones should be released around the world - including in the US, via all major carriers - starting this spring.

Check out the photos below - do you think this is what the final version of the S6 will look like?

Update 2: it seems that this alleged Galaxy S6 prototype / test device has no microSD card slot. There's a protruding camera on the back, next to an LED flash and a heart rate sensor, while the top and bottom of the handset look a bit iPhone-ish.
