Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 flagship is one of the much awaited smartphones of the moment, and recent hearsay has it that it’s set for a release on March 1. The device will be an upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy S5 and, just as always, there’s a lot of expectation from it, especially now that it’s said for the device to shift away from the Qualcomm processors it’s used in the past versions and opt for an in-house kernel.
A bunch of pictures have been obtained by NoWhereElse website, detailing the metal frame of the device, as you can see for yourself in the gallery from below. The new photos portray the frame from all angles and show the layout of its ports and buttons. According to the leaked schematics, the handset could measure just 7.2mm thick, with the sides having a carved design.
We can see plastic cutouts for the antennas, a secondary microphone and what seems to be a cutout for an IR blaster. On the left, we can see the volume rocker and on the right there’s the Power/Lock button and a SIM tray. On the lower side, we see a microUSB port, 3.5mm headphone jack, the main microphone and a single speaker grille.
According to recent rumors, the camera is said to have a 20MP sensor, LED flash and a heart rate sensor could be placed at the back, making it a little bulky. The smartphone could feature a 5″ Super AMOLED display of QHD resolution, Exynos 7420 chipset with an octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM. There’s also a 5MP front-facing selfie camera and a non-swipe fingerprint sensor on the home button.
The leaker also says the base Galaxy S6 will sport 32GB memory and will cost 749€ SIM-free, and the 64GB and 128GB will sale for 849€ and 949€. This is quite a premium price, and if you ask me, is a little too much for what’s going on right now in the market.
