Although it was in the rumor mill for the Samsung Galaxy S6 by a completely new design, the words, as this will however look closely, has not been treated. Now reports the Korean website DDaily that the upcoming Samsung’s flagship, to be developed under the code name “Project Zero”, was equipped with a glass back and metal frame. It is also talk of a Galaxy S6 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy S 6: With glass and metal back frame instead of unibody

While the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S6 already some details should be known, such as the main use of Exynos processors due to heat problems with Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, there are a few details to the design. While it can be assumed that Samsung as the Galaxy Alpha, grade 4 and the Galaxy A series will focus on new materials and polycarbonate as the exclusive building material for the housing is off the table, but what the South Korean manufacturer for its high-end smartphone concrete has in store, remains a mystery.

Samsung Galaxy S 6 is similar in material selection in earlier iPhones

Now report the relatively reliable operator of the Korean magazine DDaily from a Galaxy S6 with glass on the front and back, which is enclosed by a metal frame. This information should come from a Samsung employee who wishes to remain anonymous: “The Samsung Galaxy S6 does not consist of a metal unibody – on the front and back glass is used.” In addition is a second version of the flagship with a rounded screen edge in planning, resembles the Galaxy Note edge.

According to the Korean magazine the next Samsung flagship with the iPhone released so far is comparable. Admittedly, the company from Cupertino Apple adopted the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus from a glass back and instead it uses metal, the comparison can therefore only be taken to the iPhone 5s. With a glass back, which is enclosed by a metal frame, the back could – like the iPhone – not to be removed. Thus, it would no longer be possible to replace the the next Samsung flagship battery.
