Samsung is already getting a lot of attention for its UNPACKED event tomorrow, but a new leak may kill the surprise. It is common knowledge that Samsung will launch its 2015 flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on 1 March. There have been a lot of leaked reports on price, specs and design but images of the handsets were missing. But now, a newly-leaked image gives a clear shot of both the phones side-by-side.
The 'official-looking' image comes from a Reddit user marked as a verified employee of Sprint. The leaked image is clearly a promotional run by the US carrier with the same campaign tag line "Six Appeal" as in the original marketing image. The interesting fact here is both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are seen alongside the promotional message. There's also a possibility that the devices in the leaked image could be fake but it certainly sits well with all the previous leaks and rumours, making the leaked image look credible.
As per the leaked image, spotted by Android Police, Galaxy S6 Edge features curved edges on two sides while Galaxy S6 sports a flat design. The leaked image also is in sync with previous leaks about the two flagship devices. According to earlier reports, Galaxy S6 is expected to feature a metal build with a sealed body. It will be powered by two chipsets based on different markets; in the US, there will be the new Snapdragon 810 SoC and an Exynos 7 Octa Core chipset in international variants.
Other details include a 3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage options, improved fingerprint scanner, water-proof certification, heart rate and UV sensors, improved 20MP rear camera and 5MP front snapper. The 5.1-inch display with boast 2K resolution and have Corning Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. Both phones will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
The Samsung flagship handsets also appeared in a separate video on YouTube by Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy, who claims to have gotten his hands on to Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The handsets in the video look legit with all the details adding up to the most reliable leaks.
