Samsung Galaxy 6 pictures point to 5.5-inch display

New Samsung Galaxy S6 pictures have appeared online ahead of the phone’s expected March unveiling.

With the Galaxy S6 having been the subject of multiple leaks and rumours in recent weeks, newly surfaced images have claimed to show the phone’s metal frame and plastic front.

What’s more, with much speculation surrounding the handset’s sizing, the latest leaks have suggested the device will sport an LG G3 echoing 5.5-inch form factor, not the 5.2-inch dimensions previously tipped.

Surfacing courtesy of claimed supply chain sources, the leaks shots show a slightly chunky handset with a Galaxy Alpha mimicking metal body.

While the images appear to show a new Samsung handset, given the device’s fat bezels and bright yellow hue, we would be hesitant to say this is flagship S6 and not just another mid-range offering. As such, we would suggest taking the leaks with a sizable pinch of salt for now.

Looks aside, previous reports have claimed the Galaxy S6 will be a true iPhone 6 rival, pairing its refreshed design with a bevy of premium components.

Features reportedly on the S6 hit-list include the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 21-megapixel rear-mounted camera.

Although some have speculated the S6 might land at CES 2015 next month, it appears all but certain that the Galaxy S5 follow-on will take its first formal bow during MWC 2015 in early March.
