Many leaked pictures of the Galaxy S6 have been published online, including case designs for the unannounced handset, though Samsung’s final design for the upcoming flagship is yet to be confirmed. Meanwhile, an Italian journalist published on Twitter a schematic that could be showing the Galaxy S6, with SamMobile saying the image might give us the first real look at the handset.

FROM EARLIER: Leaked schematics may have revealed the Galaxy S6’s new design

Samsung has reportedly designed the Galaxy S6 from scratch, instead on building on previous Galaxy S versions. The image shows a rather thin handset with a large, almost bezel-less display. The home button appears to be taller than the Galaxy S5’s and the front-facing camera, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor seem to have been moved to the left side of the earpiece.

The volume buttons are placed on the left side, and they appear to be separate buttons, and on the bottom the headphone jack and microUSB port can be easily seen.

Meanwhile, MakTechBlog spotted what could be a Galaxy S6 version on Indian import site Zauba. The SM-G920V is described as a 5-inch mobile phone shipped for testing and evaluation. Thus, the Galaxy S6 could have a 5-inch display that would be slightly smaller than Galaxy S5’s 5.1-inch screen.

Images showing the Galaxy S6 design schematic and the Zauba listing follow below.
