If there's one thing Samsung has been extremely good at hiding from the prying media, it's been the actual design of all its flagships in recent years. The same has been the case for the Galaxy Note 4 this year, but newly leaked images showing an unknown Galaxy device with what looks like an S Pen slot might possibly be breaking the norm. As can be seen from the images, the device looks like the Galaxy Note 3 with a bit of the Galaxy Alpha sprinkled in, with a frame on the side that looks like it could be made of metal and a back cover with an improved version of Samsung's beloved faux-leather material. There's also a microUSB 3.0 port and loudspeaker at the bottom, and a heart rate sensor on the rear.
Futhermore, the device in the images looks quite similar to the one seen on the image of the Note 4's alleged retail box that leaked earlier today. This doesn't mean that this is actually the final design of Samsung's next phablet flagship, but it does offer us a look at what the Galaxy Note 4 might look like when it launches later this year. In any case, it won't be long before we find out what's real and what's pure smoke and mirrors.
