Spigen Says This is What the Samsung Galaxy S6 Looks Like

spigen galaxy s6

Samsung has become one of the best at keeping its phone designs a secret up until they take the wraps off of them at an official unveiling. They are without a doubt better at it than HTC and Apple. Over the last couple of years, designs for the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series have floated about before the phones are announced, but few have been credible. So what do we make of the Galaxy S6 cases that popular casemaker, Spigen, has posted to its Amazon sales pages? Well, they have been right in the past when it comes to giving us hints and silhouettes of yet-to-be-announced phones. Are they right again? 

For some background, understand that casemakers often get molds or specs of upcoming devices long before they are announced, so that they can have their related products ready for launch. When a casemaker posts up a case for sale of an unreleased device, we would imagine that they are basing their renders off of something semi-realistic.

And again, Spigen has been doing this for years. They tend to post up cases of unreleased devices well ahead of official announcements, more than likely to get their name in headlines (hey, success again!) and their products pre-ordered.

But here’s the thing – they outed design elements in the Nexus 5, HTC One (M8), and LG G3 that turned out to be correct. In fact, they completely outed the dimensions and design of the G3 before LG made it official. They do have a decent track record at giving us glimpses of phones before they are supposed to.

So what about these new “Galxay S6” cases? Tough to say. A couple of blurry cam photos have surfaced within the last couple of days that look like the phones Spigen is using. The camera and flash/heartrate sensor are in the spots that Spigen is showing here. To me, though, the rest of the phone just looks like a Galaxy S5, which Samsung seems to have said they will move far from using new materials and an innovative design. Nothing seems innovative or new about this, other than the camera situation.

What do you think – is this what the Galaxy S6 will look like, or is Spigen just trying to make headlines again?

    Did anyone notice how the phone’s lockscreen (including the battery icon) looks like iOS?
    Ooooh, Apple and Samsung will be going to war again! :3

    Oh look. It’s the Galaxy S5S
    Seriously tho, I thought the S5 looks fine. Except for the horrific plastic edges. Not for the fact that they’re plastic. But glossy, chrome-painted plastic. Black would’ve been fine. As would soft touch plastic. But they had to go with something that would chop off.

    Where teh F da speaker?…..cools! looks like I ALREADY have the S6 and I didn’t know it!….somehow it lost its water resistance while I wasn’t paying attention. Resistance is futile, all will become one with the ingress.

    Whoa. That ain’t right. I’m calling bullsh!t on this photo. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdshf9MIeq1ro2d43.gif

    Hey they moved the heartbeat sensor. Big update Samsung way to be innovative, just like Apple.

  • Voltism

    The cubs will win the superbowl before samsung ditches the home button, and that’s not even the sport they play in

  • StankyChikin

    That stupid button.. They ever going to remove that thing?

  • Deva

    This is not the S6! No way are they going with the band aid back again, since the got so much crap for it on the S5. Also the home button is suppose to be bigger for an improved fingerprint scanner. This is a decoy like the HTC hima last week.

  • dadamaja

    If it is infact the gs6, thats going to be the first nail in the coffin for them

  • WickedToby741

    I sure hope for Samsung that this isn’t the S6. I don’t truly believe it is (it may be a mock up given to case makers by Samsung so they can get the dimensions but don’t leak the real thing), but if it really is it’s definitely not the redesign they promised.

  • AndrewScottRox

    Color me skeptical but I don’t see that band-aid design coming back on the S6. Didn’t the designer get fired?

  • why won’t they just copy someone like the old days?

  • taz89

    I’m pretty sure this is not the s6. Looks like spigen is trying get in the press. No surprise that when a supposed back of the s6 is leaked, several concepts etc are now trying to make “real” s6 leaks just by using that camera and heart sensor placement. In this case spigen used the s5 back cover with the “s6” leak back camera layout, they used the s5 front and some random lockscreen that’s obviously not tw or stock android and more looks like ios.

    spigen has been right on in the past but usually their homescreen renders are correct too…. but that looks like a iphone 6 screen

  • estimatedprophethawk

    I don’t know about the phone, but Sigen, once again, had made a cool MFing case!

    No waterproofing, no front facing speakers, & no SD card? Samsung couldn’t be that stupid. Could they?

    • TylerCameron

      How can you tell the SD card isn’t removable? Did you try one for yourself?

  • indiana85

    I really hope it doesn’t, phones are just in a place now to what else can u do especially looks wise how thinner and bigger, wider can phones get to a point now?

  • Jprime

    clickbait!

  • Eric R.

    Fake! Just choose a different color it shows the S5 and the lock screen and wallpaper is on the Play store, its called OS 8 Lock Screen

  • Thiago Souza

    Keeping the design a secret???? It’s the same old sh*t since S3
