Report claims both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge will pack “all metal” exteriors

Samsung Galaxy S6

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are expected to feature premium metal clad exteriors as numerous reports in the past have indicated. And a new report now confirms that this is indeed true as the Korean manufacturer is keen on going with “all metal” bodies for the two flagships.

While this might sound hard to believe, it does make sense considering the company’s willingness to shy away from polycarbonate. As we’ve seen with the Galaxy Alpha, Samsung is capable of launching a handset with a premium design, so it won’t be impossible to achieve that feat with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge.

This will also mean that the two smartphones will not support removable back covers, which has been one of the crucial features of Samsung flagships in the past. But the company might be willing to make that sacrifice in order to get a better looking phone. The likes of Sony, HTC and Apple have done this from as long as we can remember, so there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work for a company like Samsung.

The report also mentions that the Galaxy S6 Edge will have two curved edges as previously reported, which will be an interesting feature to check out. Both smartphones will go official on the 1st of March prior to the MWC event in Barcelona.

  1. I don’t get it really, sure a flagship smartphone needs to look good at point of sale if…..a decent range of cases are not available.
    At some point we will all drop our devices.
    Manufacturers should promote/market devices through the more committed outlets, with protection that looks good and not be concerned about the hyper expensive/pretty iPhones of this world.
