Possible first images of Galaxy Note 4 show metallic frame
Grab your saltshakers – purported images of the Galaxy Note 4 just leaked, showing what appears to be a metal frame similar to that of the Galaxy Alpha.
The images were sent to GSM Arena by an anonymous source, so there’s really no guarantee that they are the real deal. This disclaimer out of the way, the images don’t show any sign of tampering and seem credible enough.
So, what are we looking at here? The most obvious feature is the metallic-looking frame going around the sides of the phones, which is very similar to the frame of the Galaxy Alpha. The frame is chamfered on the edges, and features what appear to be plastic inserts, ostensibly to ensure antenna reception. The bottom edge of the phone shows a microUSB 3.0 port, a speaker grille, and the S Pen slot.
The back of the phone is likely textured plastic, similar to the Note 3’s, but without the faux stitching. The squared off camera and LED/heart rate sensor module are also similar to those we saw in leaked Galaxy Alpha shots.
On the front side, the only distinctive feature are the very thin bezels. Rumor has it the Note 4 will feature a 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel AMOLED display.
In a related report, Phone Arena published the alleged retail box of the Note 4 showing a render of the front of the device that’s quite similar to the images above.
Do you think these images are legitimate? If so, are you happy with the Note 4’s design?
