Galasy S6 metal body

As is the case with every year, we’ve heard our fair share of rumors regarding the next-gen Galaxy S. Among others, we’ve heard that Samsung is starting from square one in terms of design and build quality, largely due to the company’s massive decline in Galaxy S5 sales. A few rumors have popped up regarding the Galaxy S6’s hardware, but nothing too substantial quite yet. However, a new leak from today has allegedly outed pictures of the Galaxy S6’s metal frame. Take a look at the photos below for a closer look.

The alleged photos reveal some new information that we haven’t seen yet: the button layout. As you can see from the photos, the MicroUSB port, 3.5mm headphone jack, speaker and what looks like a microphone cutout are placed at the bottom. The right side looks to feature the power/standby key and SIM card slot. On the left side, we’re seeing a volume rocker, and the top has cutouts for the antennas and what could possibly be an IR blaster. Other rumors suggest that the S6 will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED 1080p display, a 20MP camera, and even significantly less bloatware when it comes to the software.

Furthermore, Samsung has just released a teaser image for their Unpacked event slated for March 1st. The teaser image shows what looks to be a curved display, much like we’ve seen on the Galaxy Note Edge.

We need to remember that these images, and basically everything in this post, are just rumors for now. If you’re interested in more Galaxy S6 rumors, head to our rumor roundup. So, what do you think? Could this be the Galaxy S6? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
