Samsung has a lot riding on the Galaxy S6 and every leak we’ve seen about the device indicates that it’s going to be the phone many Android fans have been wanting Samsung to release for years. With a reported full metal body, a major reduction in bloatware and a revamp of TouchWiz to make it less of a drain on performance, it sounds like Samsung has listened to users’ major criticisms of its devices over the years and is prepared to deliver in a big way.

DON’T MISS: The news we’ve been waiting for: Kiss bloatware goodbye on the Galaxy S6

Now a new leaked picture posted by SamMobile shows us what looks like the actual Galaxy S6 caught on camera for the first time. The device seems to match up with rumors we’ve heard and includes an all-metal frame and appears overall to be much slimmer than the Galaxy S5.

The photo originally popped up on the XDA Developers forum and the person who posted it says that he initially wasn’t sure what the device was. People in the thread, however, told him that it is indeed the Galaxy S6 and begged him to post more pictures. The user said that he would do so, although he hasn’t posted any fresh ones yet.

Sadly, only one of the three shots he took of the device is outside its bubblewrap. Nonetheless, this does look a lot like the real deal and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with more pics if they pop up online.

UPDATE: The XDA poster has just added several more photos that give us a much clearer look at the device. Here are the latest photos:
