This Could Be Our First Good Look At The Samsung Galaxy S6

This Could Be Our First Good Look at the Samsung Galaxy S6

Samsung's big new flagship phone is due out very very soon at this year's Mobile World Congress, and Samsung has been teasing the shit out of it. But now, it looks like one may have made its way out into the wild. It looks refreshingly different.

The images, leaked by someone over on the XDA forums show a phone that's a departure from the S-phones of the past. (And also some hamsters to cover up identifying information.) Remember the used-band-aid thing? Gone in favour of a smooth back that looks to be plastic, and not a metal back like some rumours have suggested. The edges though? They look like real metal instead of the fake stuff Samsung's been fond of in the past. Also, damned if the bottom doesn't look a whole lot like an iPhone 6, which lines up with other leaks we've seen. It's impossible to know with leaks, but this looks pretty convincing.

The phone we see here also has rounded edges like the iPhone 6 instead of the more angled edges that were so great on the Note 4, which is kind of a bummer. But really it's just nice to see something that looks very little like the Galaxy S5. We'll find out if it's the real thing very soon. But so far, it looks legit. [XDA via Android Police]



      Yep, this. Personally can't wait for HTC's offering.

        Cracked my sgs4 yesterday (shit!) and decided Im going HTC with my next phone. Can't wait either!

        You... mean the one that looks exactly the same as the last one?

          Was totally waiting for someone to say that!
          Agreed :)

    meh, ive got the note edge and thats making me very happy for the moment.

    It looks refreshingly different by looking exactly like an s3.

      Or it looks refreshingly different like every rectangle phone with a screen, button at the bottom and camera at the top.

        You'd think they'd be moving away from apple's patent on a rounded rectangle...

          I am unsure if you are serious or joking....

          Pretty much every handheld device known to man is somewhat of a rectangle with rounded edges i.e. calculator, wallet, tablet, notepad, etc etc. Not sure how you can innovate or do anything different.

            It's a joke, I'm hilarious.

            It's also a joke that apple won a patent for the most ambiguous description of a device they didn't even come close to inventing, and then tried to leverage that patent against competitors.

            But mostly I'm funny, and poignant, like all great comedians.

    Still with the stupid large bezels. I'll pass.

    What's with all those, looks like holes, at the bottom of the screen and along the camera on the right hand side? Vents? Is this thing nuclear?! And why is his fingers covering up the earpiece? In all seriousness, If this really is the sgs6, then Samsung are stuck in 2005. It looks fat and bloated. Not the metal sleek image that was leaked the other day by T-mobile(I think it was them).

    Looks like the S5, which looked like the S4, which looked like the S3.

    I doubt it will have the iPhone 6 look and feel.
    The side buttons is where the curved edges would be on the edged version.
    Either the buttons will be on top, bottom or back of the device IMO.

    Amazing S6 and truly a Spoiler Alert. Thanks for your article, also found the amazing news over here along with yours :)
