Just the other day, images of what was purported to be the metal unibody of the Galaxy S6 surfaced online. It was a very slim and sleek design that looked rather iPhone-esque. Although no images of the entire device in working order has been leaked (yet), an artist from HDBlog.it took the metal unibody and made a phone out of it.
As you can see by the above images, the renders are taken directly from this leak. It really gives a picture of how the Samsung Galaxy S6 will turn out. There is no doubt that Samsung will employ a metal unibody on the Galaxy S6, there just isn’t a need for swappable battery since quick charging is taking over.
Eliminating the removable battery will in turn make the device thinner and give it a more premium feel; there won’t be a flimsy plastic battery cover. This has been one area where Android fans have praised Samsung, so it’s interesting to see how consumers will react.
Exact dimensions are unknown at this point, but the device looks as if it will be far below 8 mm thick. This will be a huge upgrade from the current Galaxy S5, which sits at 8.1 mm. Aside from a new thickness, all rumors point to the device carrying on the same 5.1 inch screen seen on the Galaxy S5, but it will get handed a few more pixels (QHD).
