Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge might be announced today: renders and specs leak hours before unveiling

We’re all looking forward to the big Samsung Unpacked Episode 2 keynote (livestream here) where the company is expected to unveil to the world its newest Galaxy Note 4, but a fresh leak hours before the event kicks off shows renders of not one, but two new forthcoming devices.

The picture on the right shows Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge, and while we’ve heard about the Note 4, the Note Edge is the real surprise here. With a curved display that flows to the sides of the device, it’s a brand new form factor. We’ve seen teasers and concepts for such a gadget for a long time - Samsung itself showed its Youm ‘three-sided’ foldable display that’s likely in use here.

In the Galaxy Note Edge, the side of the smartphone previously reserved for physical buttons, is now occupied with a usable touchscreen: the picture here shows how the side displays basic information about the time, battery status, signal level, but also shows missed notifications. This could be a nice way to quickly check what’s new on your phone without actually unlocking it.

In the meantime, an Indian blogger Gaurav Hasabnis has spilled the beans about the Note 4 and Note Edge specs that he allegedly saw and handled. Here is what he mentions:

  • 5.7" Quad HD (1440 x 2560-pixel) Super AMOLED display on both Note 4 and Note Edge
  • Addition 160 pixels on the side for the Note Edge
  • Snapdragon 805 system chip with quad-core, 2.7GHz processor
  • Full metal frame for Galaxy Note 4
  • Note 4 dimensions: 153mm tall, 78mm wide, 8.5mm thick
  • 16-megapixel OIS camera with Sony sensor on both Note 4 and Note Edge
  • No IP certification (not water or dust resistant)
  • Global release for Note 4 and Note Edge
  • Note 4 to have heart-rate sensor, 3 mics
  • Rapid charger battery technology, 3220mAh battery

Is the Galaxy Note Edge really coming, though, or is it just a faked render to stir things up before the real event? We’ll know in just a couple of hours - stay tuned for our liveblog from IFA 2014 Berlin.

Thanks for the tip, Leaker and Michel!

Galaxy Note Edge looks really unattractive/ugly compared to Note 4.

If it's true then it will be a new standard for other manufacturers to follow. Samsung created the phablet category and popularized it. This will be the phablet of the year. Congrats Samsung in advance. I'm not trolling or whatsoever, it's my opinion.

Note 3 user here too. I wouldn't recommend to buy it before 4 has been out for few months because rom development takes time and note 3 has excellent roms. Also, you can buy it for half the price in six months.

I don't see any major advantages of the Galaxy Note Edge like display (curved).
But a flexible display, then yes, so that I can fold a tablet and stick it in my pants.
But just a slightly curved display is no more useful than a flat display.
That's how i feel. I might be wrong. please do en light me if I'm wrong.

Actually a flexible screen has no benefits... The curved is better..imo
