With a possible Galaxy S6 unveiling less than two months away, you can expect to start seeing a few leaks — and this one could well be one of the most revealing. It allegedly shows a prototype Galaxy S6 with super slim bezels down the side of its display, and a much-improved earpiece and front-facing camera layout.

Before you get too excited, however, we’re not completely convinced.

The design of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 may be under lock and key, but its specifications are already appearing in AnTuTu benchmarks. If the results are true, fans can expect a 5.5-inch 2K display, Samsung’s new 64-bit processor, and a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Samsung has this annoying habit of putting loudspeakers on the back of its smartphones, meaning they become muffled when you place them down or hold them in your palm; the South Korean company hasn’t yet gotten around to copying HTC’s front-facing BoomSound speaker setup.

But owners of a rooted Galaxy Note Edge can turn their handset’s earpiece into a second loudspeaker themselves with this simple software tweak.

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 has become the latest third-party smartphone to get an Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. Handsets with the SM-G900F model number — which are typically sold in Europe — are getting the new software first, and it brings a whole host of new features alongside significant performance improvements.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 will get its Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade by the end of this year, according to one European carrier, while the Galaxy Note 4 will get the same release in January. The rollouts will make Samsung’s flagship Galaxy devices some of the first third-party smartphones to get Google’s latest Android software.
