The Galaxy S6's metal chassis gets leaked | Update: Fake
The last few years, Samsung has been sticking to their guns by putting plastic and their hyperglaze backs on their devices which in-turn caused weak device sales. In response, the metal clad Galaxy Alpha was born and damn was it sexy with it's chamfered edges and metal buttons. Soon enough both the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy A series started adopting metal in the build opposed to the usual plastic. Naturally, the next step is to integrate this new formula into their flagship handset which is due for a refresh in the coming months
Well you know what that means, leaks whether legit or not will start popping up. Today, we're being served up a couple of alleged Galaxy S6 frames by reputable leaker nowhereelse. These images shows a unibody chassis which is said to be for the upcoming Galaxy S6. We can't say for sure this is for the Galaxy S6 because there is no Samsung branding anywhere so we'll just have to believe the source.
The chassis looks to be an early prototype with rougher edges and if this is for the Galaxy S6 then Samsung might just be moving away from their trademark removable battery spec. On the back there are big cutouts on the top and bottom which presumably are for the antennas.
This is still an unconfirmed leak so just take it lightly and stay tuned for more Galaxy S6 leaks in the coming months leading to the launch. A little recap, the Galaxy S6 is expected to launch around April/May and will be featuring Qualcomm's new octa core Snapdragon 810 CPU and also sport a 2K display like the Galaxy Note 4.
UPDATE: It looks like this is just another wild dream, Sammobile has confirmed this is just an early Galaxy A5 prototype
@BGR It is an early A5 prototype...
