Galaxy S6 renders show off refreshed design

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has made yet another premature appearance, with the handset’s design teased by newly leaked renders.

The subject of countless leaks and rumours in recent weeks, the S6 has long been tipped to be on the receiving end of a dramatic design overhaul.

Now, thanks to the latest leaks, we’ve been offered an early look at the phone’s sleek, 6.9mm thick metal body, which looks set to feature an iPhone 6 echoing protruding rear camera housing.

Surfacing courtesy of case maker OBLIQ, the S6’s design has been showcased in a selection of pre-production renders.

As well as offering glimpses of the phone’s new, round cornered metal frame, the teased S6 pictures have highlighted the phone’s continued support of the rear-mounted heart rate sensor and square camera housing.

Although not touched on in the latest leaks, under the hood it is expected the Galaxy S6 will pair its own Exynos 7420 64-bit processor with 3GB of RAM and Google’s latest Android 5.0 mobile operating system.

A 5.1-inch QHD display with a stunningly sharp 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution has been tipped to feature around front, with the rear-mounted snapper to be a 20-megapixel, OIS-enhanced offering.

If, like us, you’re impressed with the new look of the Galaxy S6, you shouldn’t have too long to wait to get your hands on one.

The Korean manufacturer has confirmed plans to hold a pre-MWC 2015 press release on March 1, an event where the Galaxy S6 is expected to take pride of place.

TrustedReviews will be on location at the Barcelona-based show to bring you all the latest on the Galaxy S6 launch.
