New leaked images show off the Samsung Galaxy S6 in full (Update: more images!)
Update 1: The XDA user has posted one more photo of the handset on the thread which looks to be a clearer shot of the center image (shown above). The new image is attached below the original post.
Update 2: The user has posted more pictures, this time of the full device outside of the bubble wrap. They’re much more clear than the original photos posted, and the user also mentions that the battery cannot be removed (which lines up with previous rumors). The five new images can be found at the bottom of this post.
Original post: As the launch date for the Galaxy S6 is getting closer, we’re hearing more and more rumors about Samsung’s next big handset. We’ve heard a ton of rumors regarding the Galaxy S6’s build quality, and that it will likely feature much more premium materials than we’ve seen from Samsung devices in the past. Today we get another leak of the handset, and it’s quite a detailed one. A user posted pictures on XDA of what’s purported to be the Galaxy S6. While the majority of the phone is wrapped in bubble wrap, we can still see that these are the clearest photos of the handset so far.
The back of the device doesn’t show anything out of the ordinary. We’re seeing a camera module with a flash towards the top of the device, and that’s about all we can make out for that image. The side of the device is also shown off, revealing the metallic edging that wraps around the device. The last image, also covered by bubble wrap, shows off the front of the handset. Again, there’s not too much out of the ordinary with this one either – a home button, a front-facing camera and a big screen – all placed in their normal spots. The home button does appear to be a tad bigger than previous versions, but that’s about the only notable change we can see from the leak so far. Now, we can’t say for sure that these are images of the S6. There’s a good chance that the photos could be of another Samsung handset or a knockoff of some kind. But given the rumors we’ve heard in the past, most of the details seem to match up.
Judging from the leaked images and all of the other leaks we’ve heard up to this point, this is turning out to be one attractive device. What are your thoughts on the new leaked images?
What do you think? Is this the real deal?
