Samsung Galaxy S6 Leaked Schematic

Great news for Android fans who want a phone that’s as slim as the iPhone 6 — the Galaxy S6 looks like it’s going to deliver. SamMobile has posted a leaked schematic that shows the Galaxy S6 will be exactly 6.91 millimeters thick, which just happens to be the same thickness as what we see in the iPhone 6 and a little bit thinner than the iPhone 6 Plus.

As for the rest of the device’s dimensions, it looks as though the device’s display will measure in at 107.32 millimeters long and 64.46 millimeters wide. The entire device will be 140.3 millimeters long by 70.81 millimeters wide, which puts it right between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in terms of size.

From a design standpoint, we can’t tell too much difference between the device and previous Galaxy S models, although the device’s rear camera module looks to be a lot larger than cameras we’ve seen in earlier Samsung phones and the display looks like it will be as close to edge-to-edge as any Samsung device released so far. In fact, doing simple arithmetic based on the schematic’s dimensions shows that its side bezels will each be a little more than 3 millimeters wide on each side.
