Though Samsung has yet to unveil its next Galaxy smartphone, details about its specs have been pouring out in recent months. In the latest leak, Samsung fans may be getting their first actual glimpse of the mobile device.
A photo purporting to show the new Galaxy smartphone, which could be called the S6, was published Friday by Dutch tech blog Toptienmobiel. The image, provided by an anonymous source, is said to be a prototype model, as indicated by the sticker on the top right of the phone.

While the prototype in the image has some characteristics of previous Galaxy models, two big changes are thinner bezels and the camera's relocation to the center of the top edge.
The Galaxy S6 may contain a 64-bit processor, a quad HD (2560x1440 pixel) screen, an improved camera, and a chip that integrates all of the phone’s sensors, according to the latest rumors.
While the S6’s specifications and design are still unconfirmed, fans of Samsung devices will know soon enough. The company is expected to unveil the S6 in March during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Samsung has been looking to turn around its falling smartphone sales, after it saw a 60 percent decline in profits during its third quarter. In addition to new phone designs, the company is taking other measures to deal with falling profits, including the elimination of up to 30 percent of its smartphone lineup.
