Samsung design patent could hint at look of Galaxy S 5 and Galaxy Note 4


A Samsung design patent might just give us a clue as to what the Galaxy S 5 or even the Galaxy Note 4 might look like. Since the design appears to have a S Pen slot, all things point to the Note 4, but we know that Samsung usually keeps the Galaxy S and Note phones look the same each year. Interestingly enough, this patent was first revealed back in August of last year, and it was believed to be the look of the Galaxy Note 3. This particular patent is a re-application of that August patent.

One thing that is very interesting about the patent is the lack of hardware buttons, which has always been synonymous with Samsung. Could they finally be removing them, or for whatever reason, were they purposely omitted from the document? More pics after the break.
