Alleged photo of Galaxy Note 4 with curved display leaked [Update: Nope]

Update: Whoops. On closer inspection looks like this is in fact a fan render from a few months back.

Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy Note 4 early next month at the IFA, with rumors referencing two possible variants of the device — a standard model with a form factor similar to that of the Galaxy Alpha and a curved display version which may be called the Galaxy Note Edge. Images leaked earlier this week claimed to show the standard version, and today another image has appeared showing what a curved display variant might look like.

The image from GSMArena is allegedly shows a Galaxy Note 4 unit sent out for testing, showing a display that slopes to the left and right sides of the device.

Also highlighted in the image is the back, which looks more akin to that of the Galaxy S5 than the Galaxy Note 3. Another point of difference is a flap that is covering the microUSB port at the bottom of the device.

As is always the case with unsubstantiated leaks, we suggest you take the information with a grain of salt. What do you guys think of the Galaxy Note 4 with the curved display?
