There have already been countless rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S6. Over the past few months we have seen the company incorporate metal into its smartphones, look no further than the Galaxy Alpha, and similar materials are now expected to make an appearance in future flagships. The Galaxy S6 too is rumored to have a metal shell and a picture leaked today apparently shows the shell of Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
The picture has been published online by French website Nowhere Else, which has a decent track record with these things, so try not to dismiss this as yet another useless bit from the rumor mill.
Samsung is expected to display the Galaxy S6 and one of its variants at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015, however the smartphone might only be shown to select partners and that too behind closed doors. The consumer launch isn’t expected to take place until March at the very least.
While this leaked image does show a metal shell, one can make out a design that’s similar to Samsung’s previous works, with a central cutout for the camera at the back. This would obviously be a major switch for Samsung as far as the Galaxy S series is concerned because it has traditionally stuck with plastic for the flagship’s construction.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed or denied what material will be used for the production and it’ll probably hold on to that information until the time for the official announcement comes.
