    Can't see your photo.

    Are you sure it's wasn't the screen protector popping out?

    Does the screen still response to touches ?

    Can't see photo either, probably Google Drive objecting to VPN. Yeh, sure it's not just a screen protector bubbling or coming away? What sort of liquid is it, water, pus?

    I'd surmise from that picture, that if it's not a screen protector, is that the backing has come away from the glass, and the liquid is a solvent from the adhesive that holds it together. And only fix is to replace it I think.

    Has the phone got excessively hot at all, like overheating, that might cause the adhesive to breakdown like that?

    This will give you an idea of what's needed.

    For Samsung service to do it, probably very expensive. But I think a competent third-party phone repair tech might be able to do it.

    Frankly this is the first time I've seen anything like this happening with a Samsung, especially one that's still quite new, S6. I've seen something similar happen with an old Fujitsu laptop, where the glue that fixes the screen bezel had apparently decomposed, and oozed a semi-liquid gooey sticky residue all around the screen. Also an Oppo Find 7 phone where the glass backing bezel had come away a bit, but that was impact damage, and wasn't oozing any liquid.

    Could be a duff batch of Galaxy S6, that used bad glue that's unstable over time.
    It's not under warranty is it? Have you been cleaning the screen and phone with any liquids or aerosols at all?
