A leaked image allegedly reveals the metal frame for Samsung’s next flagship.
The Galaxy Alpha brought a much anticipated shift in design language to Samsung’s Android smartphone lineup, eschewing the company’s infamous plastic build for one that mixes metal with an ergonomic leather-like back. Following the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, and the new Galaxy A series devices, the Galaxy S6 is guaranteed to feature a metallic construction, and a leaked picture might have given us our first look at the metal shell of Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
The picture comes from Nowhere Else, a French website that has a decent track record with such leaks. The metal frame seen here doesn’t seem too different from the design seen on current Galaxy S flagships, with a central cutout for the camera at the top and a slot at the bottom, with the latter likely for housing the antenna. The back seems to be made out of metal as well, suggesting that the Galaxy S6 will be fully metal instead of being part metal, part plastic/leather, right in line with reports that Samsung is designing the Galaxy S6 from scratch.
According to previous rumors, the Galaxy S6 will feature a Quad HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420/Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 5.0 Lollipop with a refreshed and more optimized version of Samsung’s custom overlay. As usual, there is no way to confirm the authenticity of the device in the leaked image, but we will probably see more info crop up as we move closer to the Galaxy S6’s debut.
