Another day, another day closer to MWC 2015 must mean new leaks about the Samsung Galaxy S6. Today some of the best renders and schematics we’ve seen for the upcoming smartphone from Samsung have surfaced. If accurate, they show some great detail about the smartphone as well as reveal some of the apparent inspiration Samsung may have received from Apple and the iPhone 6.
In checking out the schematics and other information, a couple bits of information are noteworthy. First, while the Galaxy S6 will only be 6.9 mm thick at the edges and for most of its area, it does have a protruding camera. That lenses causes the thickness at that point to jump up to 8.79 mm. The source for the drawings also indicates the screen size is only 4.9-inches, which is a slight decrease compared to the Galaxy S5. Apparently this is to help create a little more “space” to distinguish the Galaxy S device from a Galaxy Note device like the Galaxy Note 4, which currently has a 5.7-inch display.
The source also tries to show how the Galaxy S6 is similar to the iPhone 6 by pointing out the location and design of the speaker grille as well as the location of the headphone jack on the bottom edge of the device. Some of those decisions could just be the result of practical manufacturing needs or feedback from customers.
