Design patent hint at what the Galaxy S5 or Note 4 could look like

Back in August, we ran across a smartphone design patent that Samsung had applied for to the US Patent and Trademark Office, which back at that time made us think it could be the design of the Galaxy Note 3. Well, that clearly didn’t happen, but it seems Samsung has reapplied for the same design patents once again in December, so it could be possible that we’ll see this design applied to the Galaxy S5 or the Galaxy Note 4.

The latter has a higher chance of sporting this design, as the patent images show what looks like an S Pen slot. Of course, the Galaxy S5 could also sport this design – Samsung has a habit of mostly enlarging a Galaxy S device and launching it as a Galaxy Note with minor changes, but we could see a merged design between the two families of devices this year. The design is also missing the hardware buttons that Samsung devices are (in)famous for, though this could either be a temporary omission or a permanent one, depending on the extent to which Samsung wants to refresh its smartphone design.

What do you think?

  1. I think it’s too early to judge these flagship units. But design-wise, I’d prefer the likes of Note 3.

  2. This design still lacks stereo speakers. Common sammy, it’s time. The screen form looks promising as this could be (finally) a youm display, unbreakable and 100% non-reflecting. Wasn’t it like that?

  3. Galaxy S & Galaxy Note family merged together to form a whole new smartphone series?

    Galaxy F?

    Plus, that patent shows a wrap-around OLED display, aka YOUM?

  4. Im getting a htc one x and one s feeling….

  5. I’ll stock with my Note 3, cheers. That design is A, hideous and B, HTC’s.

  6. That nust be a Design for a Galaxy Note. In the last Picture, Fig. 3 you can see the slot for the S-Pen

  7. This design look way to much like a Motorola phone. Coming from the design of the S4 and the Note III which look amazing and then showing this this. I’m waiting for MWC jan 7 to see what Samsung has in store.

  8. This design is out of character of samsung.it looks like htc mobile or motorola mobile. The device must keep the character of the samsung style like the home button and back light buttons and get it slimmer.the screens must have 300ppi and better quality at biggest side of the mobile.samsung logo must exist.at last s4 , note 3 ,s4 mini have perfect side like metal.this must continue whith thiner devices. Perfect devices like this that the samsung funs they want to buy.
