We have seen dozens of leaks and rumors leading up to Samsung’s March 1st unveiling of its next-generation flagship smartphones. From the look of things, Samsung plans to unveil two smartphones during the annual Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. One will be the Galaxy S6, a sleek new handset with cutting-edge specs that will be Samsung’s first phone to feel like a true premium handset. The second is rumored to be a slightly modified Galaxy S6 Edge version with the same specs, but it will have a screen that curves toward the back of the device on both sides.
We’ve read the rumors, we’ve seen the schematics and we’ve watched the renders dance around on video. Now, however, a 3D printed Galaxy S6 dummy has been created and compared to Apple’s iPhone 6 on camera.
Jermaine Smit, one of two graphic designers responsible for the great renders we saw in a video earlier on Friday, is back with a new video. This time, Smit used a 3D printer to create a model of the Galaxy S6 based on supposedly accurate device schematics that leaked some time ago.
Using the model, Smit compares the presumed size of the Galaxy S6 to an actual iPhone 6, giving us what could be an exact look at how the two devices stack up against each other in terms of size.
BGR exclusively reported in January that the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be made entirely out of glass and aluminum, and will feature cutting-edge specs including a quad HD display, a 64-bit octa-core processor, a 20-megapixel rear camera, up to 128GB of internal storage, a brand new mobile payment system based on LoopPay, and Android Lollipop..
Smit’s video follows below.
