First alleged image of the forthcoming flagship from Samsung, the Galaxy S6, has surfaced on the web. First spotted by SamMobile, the rendered image shows off curved edges on the Galaxy S6, similar to Apple’s iPhone 6. GSM Arena also spotted the handset on India’s import and export database Zauba. As per the listing, the Galaxy S6 will have a 5-inch display. Also Read - MWC 2020: Who is attending and who is not due to Coronavirus outbreak

The alleged image, which seems realistic, also hints that the home button on the Galaxy S6 will be slightly taller and circular. This is in line with earlier reports that the Galaxy S6 could have a new fingerprint sensor similar to Apple’s TouchID that requires users to place a finger on the sensor than swipe over it as currently required on the Galaxy S5. This could also improve the user experience considering Samsung’s current solution has pretty low accuracy. Also Read - Amazon is also skipping MWC over Coronavirus concerns

Among other changes, the publication notes that the proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, and the front-facing camera have been moved from the top right-hand side to the top left-hand side. Also Read - Google: Android One devices grow by 250 percent as Android Go overtakes the entry-level

The headphone jack and the microUSB port are now at the bottom. Volume buttons have also received some minor tweaks. Instead of being a set of two buttons, the volume rocker is now a single large button. It has also been shifted from the right hand side of the earpiece to the left hand side.

The phone’s listing on Zauba also reveals that the handset will have model number SM-G920A. Among other features, the handset is said to be powered by Exynos 7420 processor with octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, and 20-megapixel camera.

It’s rather surprising that Samsung is reducing the screen size. Compared to the 5.1-inch Galaxy S5, the S6 is said to have a 5-inch screen. The screen resolution, however, is reportedly moving from FHD to QHD.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch at a press conference during the Mobile World Congress event in the first week of March.
