That's looked amazing metal chassis deasing, but more fans wait to show this model contained Tegra X1
Just read other site, it said that this metal frame was early prototype of A5.
My concerns (I mention as a mechanical engineer who uses cast aluminium parts):
-Aluminium - magnesium cast alloys are being used for many goods (like Pro-DSLR for being the most expensive ones). However one doesn't see the alloy as it is coated with plastic.
-It is for sturdiness (which is good but all shock goes to screen if not damped and insulated properly).
-That alloy is not expensive (like titanium etc.). If it is Zamac alloy, than price becomes more but...
-It looks ugly (I wonder how it will be polished). After all that cast alloy is matte. It doesn't look premium at all. The last thing I would like to see my watch, phone, pc is aluminium. It gets scratched in no time. You need to anodize it to look premium but it still gets scratched and becomes even uglier.
-The most important thing is the after sales service. If that phone will stop taking any updates after 2 years, who cares about the body material. It becomes a paper weight.
So, even you coat feces with gold, palladium etc., it is still feces.
as long as samsung will retain its hardware button and not those stupid, screen eater software keys..
It looks like it's molded not shaped or drilled from single pice, is this made from aluminium or is is made from magnesium alloy, or some other alloy.
S class, 05 Jan 2015As long as touchwiz remains the same, s6 will be same as s5. The whole metal chassis won't matter.TouchWiz on the s5 runs great. It runs superb on the s3 even. And already changed when the alpha came then when the note 4 came. Even more changes have leaked.
So there is nothing to worry about in your flawed logic.
AnonD-345273, 05 Jan 2015My dear friend, i liked your thing, me to like more pixels in display screen, but with new sam... moreOh yes. Qdh it will be for sure. I meant for camera sorry. 16mp is good. I would rather see 12 or 16mp on a larger sensor with bigger pixels rather than just more pixels.
Even at 12mp if they are 1.4um or 1.8um rather than staying1.12um size it would be much better. With wider aperture would be good and better low light too.
And definitely the new ram. It's awesome how the chips get faster and costume less power at the same time
It's funny to believe and forward news from such a site which had "leaked" a different S6 chassis 15 days ago
good design finally by samsung,but looks thick.
wont purchase s6 coz i lost faith in samsung.i dont like touchwiz anymore
As long as touchwiz remains the same, s6 will be same as s5. The whole metal chassis won't matter.
It will have like Nokia 515 a very big and ugly plastic zone on the back for gsm radio signal pass through. Such high end phones like S6 wanna be, must use delicate and thin plastic for signal pass through zones, like htc one and iphone 6. Again a big failure of design from tasteless Samsung
