Samsung Galaxy Note 4 design shown off in new images

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 design has been shown off in a set of images leaked online.

Ahead of the official Note 4 launch on September 3, an anonymous source has leaked images of the stylus-wielding handset online.

Although the overall design and shape looks very similar to the current Samsung Galaxy Note 3, it seems Samsung has introduced some welcome tweaks to the Note 4’s body.

From the looks of it, the Galaxy Note 4 might have a metal construction on the sides, similar to that offered by the heavily rumoured Samsung Galaxy Alpha.

As for the back, it looks like it’s another mock leather affair, but thankfully the fake stitching has been removed.

At the moment, we’re getting a few OnePlus One vibes from the rear panel, as it looks to have a slightly textured effect going on.

Along the bottom of the Note 4 there’s some speaker grilles, microUSB 3.0 port and the all-important S Pen holder. The latter might have had a small change too, as the actual pen itself looks a little squarer than in the Note 3 iteration.

As with the flagship Samsung Galaxy S5, the Note 4 looks to feature a heart rate monitor built into the rear camera flash. It also should come with the fingerprint scanner introduced with the S5.

Previous rumours peg the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 display to be 5.7-inches in size, like its predecessor, but offer an improved 2560 x 1440p QHD resolution.

It is also expected to feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM.

You should also get a 16-megapixel rear camera among other features.

The Samsung Unpacked 2014 Episode 2 conference is being held on September 3 at 3pm  CEST (2pm BST) in Berlin. TrustedReviews will be on hand to bring you all the latest from IFA 2014.
