Samsung patent application could show off the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
Samsung has hinted that the next iteration of its phablet would offer a new form factor. Could the images in a new Samsung patent application belong to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Recent speculation has the device carrying a flexible YOUM screen, with wraparound sides. And sure enough, the image of the unique looking phone in the patent application includes two wraparound sides.

Diagrams of this new phone show a device with a rounded frame, and a wrap around display that allows for some app icons to be placed on the back of the phone. The only problem is that this design concept looks very much like one that Apple filed with the USPTO back in 2011. The Cupertino based tech giant actually received a patent on the design earlier this year. Are Apple and Samsung destined to fight more patent disputes in court?

You can take a gander of what could be an early look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, by checking out the slideshow below.
