Will the Samsung Galaxy S5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 4 look like this?
Because the drawing seems to show a slot to store an S Pen, we would lean toward this being the design for the next iteration of Samsung's phablet. But we should also keep in mind that if past is prologue, the Galaxy Note 4 will take its design cue from the Galaxy S5. In other words, even if this is a drawing of Sammy's next phablet, it still tells us plenty about its next Android flagship.
You might notice that the sketches do not show any hardware buttons, which would be an interesting departure from previous models. Also note the very thin bezel on the device. We have arranged a slideshow of the images that accompanied the patent application, and you're encouraged to check them out below.

But there's a S-pen on the corner, don't tell me that the Galaxy S5 will have a S-pen. It's probably the Note 4.

Actually there are two designs. Check images 1 & 5. They show different backs. One has a stylus and the other doesn't. So these might be the designs for S5 & Note 4.

Yes indeed! I saw it after I posted my comment. LOL xD But there are two models, right? The speaker doesn't appear on image #5.

If anything, it's probably a Note because there is a stylus on the corner.

Definitely seeing a slight curve in the glass there...

Where? I only see a flat display in all images. Round corners yes, ala Galaxy S3 + external case. Check images #6 & #7

The glass is definitely curved but in the images that show the screen location within the glass it is hard to tell if the screen extends to the edges that curve or not. Might still be a flat screen under glass/plastic that curves at the edges.

3-sided display ?

Just to have curves please.. Cause Note 3 is a bit to square for most of us :)

Almost looks like it could be a Note 3 Active. It's kinda designed like the S4 Active, but has the slot for the S-Pen. It would be nice if they released one, but would also suck because it probably won't come out in time for me to upgrade to as well as probably won't be coming out on Sprint.

looks good.. I just hope Samsung doesn't ditch the physical button, and the off-screen capacitive buttons. I hated the on screen buttons my Nexus had.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant believe that Samsung is finally going without soft buttons... the design looks good but i wonder how the S UI will be adapted to the curved screen(if the s5 has one).........

They can ditch the physical home button in favor of stereo front facing speakers.

No ugly physical button? It would be great.

I have the Samsung galaxy s4 I love it but im waiting for the Samsung galaxy s5 I just don't like the pre application that be on there that you not gone use I think if they leave that part open to the customers to choose I know this Samsung galaxy s5 would kill the market.
