We have heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S6, though the device is yet to leak in pictures. Rumors around the device suggest that it would come with a metal chassis, a QHD display and a Snapdragon 810 processor. 

Now, the folks over at Nowhereelse have managed to get their hands on some alleged pictures of the metal chassis of the upcoming Galaxy handset. Contrary to the reports, the photos show the chassis with a full metal back. Samsung has only used a metal mid-frame on the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Alpha, but it looks like the company is going to take things to the next level with the Galaxy S6.


One of the images also show the brushed metal edges, as we have already seen Samsung use on the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy Note 4. The sources of Nowhereelse also reports that Samsung plans on using a curved screen on the Galaxy S6 that will be curved from both sides. Unlike the Galaxy Note Edge though, the curves will be less prominent to aid usability from both hands.

Samsung has been facing stiff competition in the low-end market from various Chinese OEMs. The company’s profit have been falling at an alarming rate since the last couple of quarters, mainly because it has been unable to launch a remarkable device this year. Its first-half flagship — the Galaxy S5 — did not particularly receive favorable reviews and also failed to set the sales chart on fire. While the Galaxy Note 4 is an impressive device from Samsung, the initial delay after the launch of the device, and the unprecedented demand for the new iPhones are definitely going to impact its overall sales.
