Samsung just having a little fun

Amid all the crazy rumors about its forthcoming smartphones, Samsung thought of making fun of itself. There have been rumors that the Galaxy S6 would look a lot like the iPhone 6. Samsung has posted a few images on its website (via 9to5Mac) based on rumors about ‘The Next Galaxy’ devices. The company is just having a little fun with the rumor mill.

The absurd images are only to hype up the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge ahead of their official launch. Meanwhile, the XDA developers forum member reefur has leaked real world images of the Galaxy S6. Going by the leaked images, the phone looks almost identical to the iPhone 6 in terms of design. Forum member going by username reefur said that they obtained the images “from AT&T directly.”

Galaxy S6 spotted in the real world

If the images are to be believed, Samsung’s next flagship will have a non-removable back cover and a protruding camera. The SIM card slot is located on the right side, below the lock/power button. The phone’s 3.5mm audio jack has been moved to the bottom. The ambient mic sensor has been moved in between the mini-USB and speaker.

Buster Hein of Cult of Mac notes that it seems to be a prototype model of the Galaxy S6. The final version may have a more refined look. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are expected to sport a 5.1-inch display, a powerful 64-bit Exynos 7 processor, 3GB RAM, Android Lollipop and 20-megapixel main camera. Along with the new phones, Samsung will introduce its mobile payment system called Samsung Pay.
