First detailed look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4: alleged images leak
One of the first detailed set of images allegedly showing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in its full glory, including both a look at its front and back, have surfaced on the web. The pictures show the Galaxy Note 4 boasting a slightly different than the earlier generation, leather-like finish of the back cover, but rather than using a plastic frame, it seems that Samsung has adopted a metal one.

Where have we seen those metal frames? Hey, it’s in the product of a rival company that you can guess for yourself, but it’s also in the leaks for the allegedly upcoming Samsung Galaxy Alpha, so if true, it looks like this is the new design direction for Samsung’s devices on the whole.

So far, we know very little about the Galaxy Note 4 and all of that information comes from rumors. The display is said to remain at 5.7 inches, but the resolution is rumored to get a bump up to 1,440 x 2,560-pixel, Quad HD heights.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 4 is likely to be one of the first to roar Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 805 system chip, but also we do expect to see an Exynos version.

Of course, you can also see a slot for the pen, and the S Pen itself tucked in. Earlier, we’ve received some more images similar to what we see leaked today on GSM Arena, and those are similar pictures showing what looks like a very early prototype. Will the final version look like this? With more smoke, there must be fire, but we are already seeing some discrepancies between all these leaks: for instance, notice how the front camera on the earlier leaked supposed retail box of the Note 4 is at a different position than what we see on this current leak (thanks, Dominik!). Which one is true, and is any of it real? We advise you to keep a healthy grain of salt always by your side with such leaks as always and inspect them with extra caution.

Looks like something I sit on when going for a picinc. You know, to keep my butt warm.

Ok kidding. Actually seems like SS is taking a small step forwards.

I think it's quite a big step forward! I'm starting to like the note lineup more and more! So much better than the S lineup.

It's already a big step forward, no more band-aid design is already nice. This looks way better than the S5, square to the elegance.

Slightly lesser curves than the Note3.

Look at the front facing camera placement on the pictures 5 and 8. It is obvious that either one of them is a fake. Probably both.

I don't know, these maybe plausible since the official announcement is now less than a month away.

I think one of these might be the final version...

Who knows? STILL something to look forward to.

I like what I see, but lets not jump to conclusions. Lets wait a few weeks to see whats up!!

I have a question, when the Note 4 comes out, should I stay with AT&T or go to T-Mobile?

They realized how important that model is, this IS Samsung's true flagship after all - so I think they were determined not to let it tank by repeating design like they've been doing with the S line-up. I'm no fan of Samsung, but the Note line-up has really won me over since Note 2. It just seem to be SO GOOD at what it does. Samsung at their best.

It looked like the back of the phone was going to be a sand stone like sand paper like material that would be nice option. You really can't change the design of the Note phone because of its pen and tablet like use

Like the

Z2
L925
Mi4
Oppo7
L930
BB Z3

It took them this many years to realise, that square oblong sharp edged phones look way much better than ugly curve phones. Especially iPhones.

As I recall, when the Galaxy S2 was released, sony was producing what you are calling ugly phones with ugly curves such as the Xperia Arc (based on your statement).

Arc S has no curves, but smoother sharp edges

IPhones have the biggest curves

Come onnnn, the Arc S had no curves? Lol
I am not saying it's ugly, I actually loved that phone, my wife had the pink version, but I am just showing the hypocrisy in your 1st comment.

I had the Arc S in black

The curves on the ArcS was similar like the L925 angel

I'm not talking about the rear but the length, where it curves in very faintly, but still remaining the she sharp edges.

So what hypocrisy?

Sony never believes in curve ugly phones

Look back in to their 1990 Sony CmdZ series

If this is real, then it's interesting to see there's no cover over the MicroUSB port - either the phone won't be waterproof, or they've figured out a way to waterproof it without a cover (which would be awesome)

"they've figured out a way to waterproof it
without a cover (which would be awesome)"

There is nothing awesome or groundbreaking about the waterproof MicroUSB port some japanese phones like kyocera phones is already used waterproof MicroUSB couple years ago and if i'm not mistaken Galaxy S5 Mini and Sony Smartband is also using waterproof MicroUSB port.

But he didn't say groundbreaking, he said awesome. And it would be awesome if it was waterproof without all the port covers.

Looking nice, especially with that metal frame, I'm sold..

I like the earlier leaked version because the micro USB port area is flush with the phone and not protruding like the later version. Don't really like the back, but that's not really a problem since there will likely be tons if back covers to buy from 3rd parties.

Are you kidding me? I mean WTF, is this real? Did Samsung really change their design language? Gotta say, I'm a bit overwhemled. It's about freaking time to see a new design from Samsung. If this real, this might be my first Samsung phone.

Also, I can't believe I'm saying this but...I'm excited for the Note 4 now.
