Samsung has plans underway for the new Galaxy S6. The Korean manufacturer is expected to unveil the Galaxy S6 in early March at the Mobile World Congress, but a new leak could mean Samsung is planning a new design along with updated specs for the flagship smartphone.

Samsung is planning a much sleeker design for the Galaxy S6 than the S5, a thinner body with narrower sides and tighter bezels, according to schematics leaked by Nowhereelse. The French site got its hands on a schematic used to make smartphone cases that shows the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a slightly taller screen as well.

The Galaxy S6 could be 12.5 percent thinner than its predecessor as well, according the site. While the Galaxy S5 was 142 x 72.5 x 8.1mm (5.59 x 2.85 x 0.32-inches), the Galaxy S6 could be sized at 143.52 x 70.7 x 7.19 mm (5.65 x 2.78 x 0.28-inches).

If the Galaxy S6 leak is not a fake, the basic shape of the S5 will remain in this year’s model, although the Samsung is expected to upgrade the body to aluminum instead of plastic. The move might also make it so that customers cannot replace the Galaxy S6 battery, and they might not be able to increase storage space with flash memory cards either… see more
