Leaked images show Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as a larger Galaxy Alpha

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is more of less confirmed to go official on September 3 and if you can’t wait that long to see what the company is cooking, we’ve got the first clear and detailed images of the upcoming phablet. The new pictures showcase the front and rear panels of the handset and even a few ports.

Multiple rumors have suggested that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will take on a different design approach and drop the plastic construction for something more durable. Based on what we can tell from the images leaked by GSMArena, the Korean giant may be planning just that as the frame shown below looks to be made from metal.

Additionally, the smartphone looks strikingly similar to the Galaxy Alpha which is expected to debut in a couple of days. This just shows how much the OEM is willing to experiment with upcoming products. The display on the front is rumored to be of 5.7 inches featuring QHD resolution and it’s clearly evident that screen will be surrounded by extremely narrow bezels.

The stitched texture is missing from the rear panel, but the faux leather look has been retained. Also, the phone appears to have the heart rate monitor onboard and we’re pretty sure that the home button on the front houses a fingerprint reader as well. The leaked images also highlight that the phablet will have a tweaked S Pen housing and USB 3.0 support.
