Purported leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy S6 have been posted online, how long until we see a clone emerge from Chinese phone makers?
GooPhone and No.1 are quite well known for making use of leaked photos of Samsung and Apple products and putting them to use padding out their own range of phones, so will these Galaxy S6 kick off the clones?
If Chinese phone makers are confident enough to start knocking out knock off Samsung Galaxy S6 phones based on these images, then at least all they will need to do is slightly modify the chassis of their iPhone 6 clones, as the alloy frame is very similar to the current Apple device.
The images, originally posted on the XDA Forums, show a champagne coloured alloy chassis with iPhone esque volume rockers, and singe sim tray. The chassis also has a single, drilled speaker in the base opposite a 3.5mm headphone jack and what appears to be an IR sensor at the top.
The rear of the Samsung Galaxy S6 look similar current Samsung devices with the main camera sitting away from the body. The ton of the phone seems to have a 5-inch display and retains it’s physical home button.
Overall it’s a design I personally am not all that keen on, but let’s see what China’s phone companies make of it.
