GSMArena has obtained some pretty clear images of what is allegedly the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4. You’ll notice it looks like the still unreleased Galaxy Alpha with the added size and S-Pen.
Like the Alpha, it would appear that Samsung has brought metal to the table, but is retaining a leather effect battery door (sigh). Also visible is a speaker on the bottom edge of the phone (ahem, iPhone anyone) and what looks like the same heart rate sensor arrangement up top as we’ve already seen this year on the Samsung Galaxy S5.
September 3rd isn’t THAT far away, but it’s when we’ll know if this is the real deal – Samsung’s Unpacked event is calendared for that date. Most people will welcome the metal (provided it’s not too heavy or sharp) but will it effect reception and hand-feel? If the back isn’t metal, do we even care!?
