Samsung’s Latest Teaser “I am crafted from what I see” Hints at Aluminium Design

February 20, 2015 - Written By Phil Bourget

Samsung has been notoriously bad at keeping its latest devices from leaking out to our waiting news sources, so it was slightly surprising to see the Next Galaxy Twitter start giving us little hints at what is assumed to be aspects and details about the next Galaxy, the Galaxy S6.  We’ve covered the possibility that the S6’s camera will have rather astounding camera performance, specifically in the dark or darker conditions.  But today, @TheNextGalaxy gave us another hint as to what the S6 will have under its belt.

The picture features what we can assume is a side-shot profile not of the Galaxy S6, but the Galaxy S6 Edge.  If you look closely, you’ll see the slight sloping to the right of the classic metallic trim floating above what we can assume is a more than welcome material design choice, and that’s aluminium.  Yes, we may finally have the confirmation that the S6 and S6 Edge will have a truly aluminium build, instead of just a trim ribbon along the perimeter like the Note 4 and Note Edge did.  Similarly, we see no camera bump on this device, which may please a lot of people that like to sit their phones on a desk or table and text without scratching the lens or having the device slide around.

The best thing to see is the way that the device curves on two sides, the top and the bottom.  This could mean that the device will more contoured, not having squared-off edges along the left and right sides.  But what this picture shows us is that the device will be thin without a camera bump and finally, a non-plastic build quality.  Samsung’s Next Galaxy says “I’m not just inspired by what I see, I am crafted from what I see”, so hopefully it sees the iPhone, HTC One series or something metallic-built like that.  Would a truly-aluminium device pique your interest, or has Samsung lost your eye for another company?  Would the double-edged S6 Edge get your dollar, or would the good original model likely be what you pick for your pocket space?  Let us know down below.
