The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has leaked yet again, revealing a smartphone with a large screen, mock leather cover, heart rate monitor and stylus.
Coming just weeks before Samsung is expected to reveal the fourth-generation phablet at the IFA technology trade show in Berlin, the photos show what appears to be a finished handset.

A second leak shows the phone’s retail box with the date of 15 September on the screen of the phone, suggesting this is when the Note 4 will go on sale.
The photos show what we suspect is a heart rate monitor next to the camera flash - just like on the Galaxy S5. Also like the S5, we expect the Note 4’s home button to incorporate a fingerprint scanner for extra security and an alternative to entering a PIN or password.
The leaks come from GSM Arena and Phonearena respectively, and while these should always be taken with a pinch of salt, there’s no reason to believe they aren’t accurate, given how much they match everything we’ve heard about the Note 4 so far.

One element missing, however, is a curved screen wrapped around three edges of the phone. Such a display was demonstrated by Samsung back in 2012 and has been heavily rumoured to feature in the next Note ever since, but never arrived.
It’s thought that Samsung might announce two versions of the Note 4 - the one pictured here and a more premium model , which might get the curved screen treatment. But, with just three weeks to go until Samsung’s Unpacked 2 event, this is starting to look unlikely.
