Hype around the Samsung Galaxy S6 over the last few months may be encouraging but its new design could leave fans disappointed if one is to go with reports that its new design looks dangerously similar to Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to come with significant changes, including looks, after poor sales of the Galaxy S but there are chances of the device getting into trouble because of its design.
Several images of the alleged Galaxy S6 showing different dimensions have been leaked by Nowhereelse.fr, the French site that correctly revealed the looks of the iPhone 6 last year, according to a report by Forbes.
Surprisingly, the leaked photos have given a hint that Samsung's next-generation smartphone could resemble the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in many ways, including unibody chassis, headphone port position, and bottom edge speaker grill.
However, screen, home buttons and fingerprint sensor could change the look of the upcoming smartphone to some extent and the South Korean electronics giant could bring in some surprising elements with noticeable changes when it is launched.
The Galaxy S6, codenamed "Project Zero," is expected to be unveiled at Samsung's "Unpacked 2015" event scheduled to take place on 1 March, just a day before the Mobile World Conference 2015 (MWC 2015) kicks off in Barcelona. Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy S Edge, the curved version of the smartphone, at the event.
The flagship device is expected to come with several feature upgrades, and a report by Phone Arena (via DDaily.co.kr) has claimed that it will have mobile payment system and fingerprint scanner in place of swipe scanner seen in its predecessors. AnTuTu benchmark of the device, as reported by Chinese website CNMO (via Phone Arena), has revealed that it would boast of features like 5.5-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, Exynos 7420 processor, Android 5.0 Lollipop, 20MP main camera and 5MP front snapper, and 32GB of internal memory and 3GB RAM.
