The internet is abuzz with news of a reportedly leaked image pertaining to Galaxy Note 4 retail box, according to Phone Arena citing an anonymous tipster as the source of the information.
Samsung is expected to unveil its highly-anticipated flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4, at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin on 3 September and a tipster has revealed a screenshot of the flagship device depicted on the purported retail box from Samsung.
According to the report, the retail box seems to differ from the environment-friendly wooden style packaging of current-gen Galaxy series devices including the Note 3 and Galaxy S5.
Besides, the new box apparently reveals a metallic pattern which might be suggestive of a metallic frame for the Galaxy Note 4 or simply a new design for the shipping box.
Another interesting point to note is that the Galaxy Note 4 depicted on the retail box shows the date 15 September on it, which is in line with earlier leaks revealing the model name and its corresponding release date on the wallpaper image of shipping or retail box.
Quite strangely, the date depicted on the retail box hints at a 15 September release for the Note 4, which is contrary to Samsung's expected launch date of 3 September for the smartphone.
An earlier IBTimes UK report adds much credence to the 15 September release rumour.
The release date rumour should be taken with a pinch of salt, as Samsung has so far only confirmed the launch date for its upcoming flagship phone via a press event invite.
The Note 4 is expected to feature a 5.7in QHD display, which will be powered by Octa-Core Exynos 5433 or Snapdragon 805 processor depending on the device configuration.
In addition, the phone is expected to ship with 3GB of RAM and include a 16MP ISOCELL camera with 4K video recording capability and UV sensor. The Note 4 is likely to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box.
