Image of alleged Samsung Galaxy Note 4 retail box surfaces
We are looking forward to Samsung taking the cover off its much anticipated Galaxy Note 4, the fourth generation in the Note series, on September 3rd at IFA in Berlin, but weeks before the big date, we’re already seeing a leak of what looks like the retail box of the device.

The box that we’ve received in our tips inbox by an anonymous leakster differs a lot from the recycled-styled, environmentally-focused boxing of current Galaxy series devices like the Note 3 and Galaxy S5. This new box has a metallic pattern that is also suggestive of new materials that could have been used in Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 (but this could also just be a new style for the box).

What’s also interesting is that the Galaxy Note 4 pictured on the box has a new wallpaper with the date September 15th on it. So far, press renders of Samsung devices like the Galaxy Note 3 show the date of the announcement, so it’d be only logical to see September 3rd on this Note 4 leak. Is this a change of policy, or a signal of some Photoshop efforts by someone out there?

It’s hard to tell, but we’ll keep our reservations about all this until we see more images, or any other more conclusive evidence this is indeed real. For the time being, we give you the leaked image of what’s allegedly that Note 4 retail box. Take a look and let us know what you think: is this the real deal?

Looks pretty legit to me. It has the restyled capacitive touch button that shows the application switcher on the left, but of course it could be faked as you know. But, I'm willing to bet this is a real photo. Also, notice the date of the pic? I'm betting that the 15th of Sept will be the official launch date as it's been widely rumored that Samsung wants to ensure they have their device out before the rumored 19th of Sept launch date of the new iPhone.

Nice try, doesn't seem to have any change if ever it'll turn out to be like that... Oh Samsung, you can't just sing "Oops I did it again" over and over... You should have learned that with the trends of your earnings!

Why do phone designs have to change every year? If it looks good already there's really no need to make any major changes. I don't understand the change the way phones look every release just for the sake if change. Look at the HTC One M7 & M8, LG G2 & G3, and iPhone 5 & 5s. All have nice designs, no need for a complete makeover, just minimal changes.

@promise7 has a point. Everything he has said is factual. (Ok maybe not about the G2 and G3).

What? The issue with earnings was with lowend devices, not the S or Note. You need to go back and read the earnings call.

Looks fake. Look at the font. Compare it to the Note 3 box font or the S5 box font.

Note 3 capacitive buttons are invisible, but this not. I think its real deal...

As much as I'm an Apple "Fanboy" I think that Samsung should concentrate toward the Note Series - It's a pretty good device. I love the integrated pen. And if it wasn't for the mess that Android and TouchWiz is (just my objective opinion) I would consider it.

Well the design looks convincing but I think it's a fake because of the number "4" on the box. I saw it written in the exact same font on one of the concept renders.

first of all, zoom in and look at the photoshop fails. Second, the wallpaper thats on the FAKE DEVICE was used for the Samsung tablet S (i think) launch advertisements. and this screams to me a phone box. therefore, we all know Samsung stopped displaying a picture of the device on boxes since Samsung tab 2 or 3 i believe. case closed....

It will be Tuesday next year. It's possibly a Note5 fake.

I Called it! I said it would be an enlarged galaxy alpha and that's what it is. The heart rate monitor is missing as well.

It's totally different from the leaked pictures yesterday. It was very slick and sharp at the edge which I've been really looking forward to have. But this cover's unit is quite round..I hate it..the round..edge. Please say this is not the real deal..please..
