Galaxy Note Edge gets permission from FCC to step on US soil

Galaxy Note Edge gets permission from FCC to step on US soil
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one of the more interesting devices of 2014. Not only is it the first smartphone to feature a curved screen, but it is also going to be available in limited numbers, making it that much more of a mythical creature.

Launch dates for the device have also not been given, with Samsung saying that they would be more separate events, rather than a single worldwide push, as the curved display puts a strain on production. Some analysts even speculated that a 2014 US release date may not be possible. Well, they may be wrong, as two Galaxy Note Edge models have just passed FCC approval – namely, a T-Mobile and an AT&T model. The model numbers are SM-N915T and SM-N915A, respectively.

Now, this doesn't mean that the leprechaun phablet will be in stores tomorrow, but it does indicate that it should be getting its own US launch date sooner, rather than later. There is a chance that Samsung will be aiming to have it on store shelves by the holiday season.

Wonder how much AT&T is going to price it since they're charging $130 more than Verizon did with the N4.

I don't even want to think about it. That $826 they are charging for the N4 is outrageous. I know you're with them now because you're getting a great deal, but I couldn't go with them on principle alone.

its only $730 on Tmobile, and the service is a hell of a lot cheaper and better.

For the same price as T-Mobile, I'm getting LTE in places I didn't before, such as malls and inside my college building.

AT&T and Sprint's pricing on the N4 is just a joke. Hopefully they get their s--t together and price it reasonably.

They reduced the price of the Note 4 to $720 outright or $30/month for 24 months or $299 subsidized on Sprint.

Since I am still on my grandfathered Everything Data plan, I will be buying it subsidized and trading my in a phone I bought off of eBay (Kyocera Hydra Edge) for that $200 rebate check, so it'll cost me $99 +$25 for that phone I bought of of eBay.

I think all Carriers have the note 4 for $299.99 after Sprint decided to reduce the price from $399.99

PA didn't Verizon say it would also offer the Note Edge? Also can someone tell me what the Note Edge would be good for?

Check the comparisons on YouTube. Some like the screen on the edge and some don't. I'd check it out at Verizon when it launches to get a feel for it.

As much as I would like to get this phone, the complete lack of information coming from Samsung is getting very frustrating. I will probably go with the Nexus or Droid Turbo if the Edge is not released very soon.

What lack of information? Only thing we don't know is the release date.

Everything else has been out there for quite a while.

Yes, you are correct, we know a lot about the deice, however, we know almost nothing about its release. Samsung hasn't even acknowledged that the US is getting this device, let alone the release date. The only reason we know its getting close is because of FCC documents like this.

All four carriers have announced they're selling the Edge the day it was unveiled.....

Why no release date...you ask? I'll tell you why..

Sammy is doing something bold by announcing 2 devices in the same segment at the same time. They want us to buy the Note 4 and not hold out while we are waiting for the Note Edge. This is why there are launching the Note Edge in limited quantities to scare us into buying the Note 4. I know I want the Edge but would settle for the Note 4 if I thought it wouldn't be released within a month of the Note 4. I'm no in a rush since my HTC One M8 is doing the trick for now, but I will scoop up the Note Edge when released.

TBH I tried the Note Edge and while it was great, I actually like the Note 4 better as it will be compatible with the Gear VR. I tried the Gear VR at Best Buy with the Note 4 and it is absolutely amazing. I only used it to watch a demo video/movie and it felt really immersive.

$99 out of pocket with the Palm Pre trade in at best buy on the 4. Wanted the edge but had to go with the sure thing of the note 4 deal. Not as if I could lose with either phone. This way I can use the Gear VR with its likely poor library. Get the cool geek in lieu of getting the edge.
