First Samsung Galaxy S6 image leaks
Is this the Galaxy S6?

With the Samsung Galaxy S6 rumours coming thick and fast, the first claimed image of the eagerly awaited has popped up online.

Surfacing courtesy of Dutch website Toptienmobiel, the purported Galaxy S6 image is said to be of a prototype device currently under development within Samsung’s South Korean HQ.

Although far from official – and we must suggest you use a liberal pinch of salt when addressing these claims – the leaked image shows the face of a device with a number of design traits similar to past Samsung flagships.

Despite featuring softly curved corners similar to the Galaxy S5, the claimed S6 image shows a handset with considerably slimmer bezels.

This design difference has previously been tipped to be bestowed on the S6, with the handset expected to follow the LG G3 in squeezing a near 5.5-inch display into a relatively compact form factor – all by cutting down the framing.

Other visually differences over the existing S5 include the relocation to the forward-facing camera to a more centralised location.

Despite repeated claims that Samsung could ditch a physical home button in favour of a soft key-centric interface, the S6 looks set to retain the same fingerprint scanner incorporating controls of its predecessor.

Further new S6 design elements – including the heavily rumoured metal frame – remain shrouded in mystery.

With the mooted S6 image having leaked via an ‘anonymous tipster’, it has previously been suggested that the phone could be just months from entering the realms of reality.

The device, which will rival likely competition such as the HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia Z4, has been tipped for an MWC 2015 unveiling in early March.

It is expected that the S6 specs sheet will see Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 810 processor partnered with a new, 20-megapixel camera and Google’s latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS direct from the box.

Are you impressed with the rumoured look of the S6 or were you hoping for something different? Let us know via the comments section below.

I wish they could have made it sexy like the Alpha and Note 4. I don't like this new look that they're giving to the S line up. The S5 is such an ugly phone compared to the S4.

Hopefully it looks better when they show it off and in person.

This could be it! SO hard to tell now days with Photoshop. TechSmash did a good comparison showing other phones and assessing whether it could be real or not.
