Samsung: the Galaxy Note Edge is a "limited edition concept device", only 1 million units to ship in 2014

Samsung: the Galaxy Note Edge is a
Yesterday, we learned of Samsung's "emergency" plans to release the Galaxy Note 4 earlier than scheduled, but the bent-display curiosity that is the Galaxy Note Edge wasn't mentioned anywhere. Today, we're filling in more details in the picture. This morning, Samsung held a press-conference in its homeland of South Korea, where it officially announced the Galaxy Note 4 launch schedule. 

The phablet's regular version will be released in Korea Friday, September 26, and it will arrive in an additional 140 markets by the end of October. It looks like the official US launch date remains October 17.

The Galaxy Note Edge is where things get pretty interesting. Samsung Electronics president D.J. Lee confirmed that the edgy phablet is a "limited edition concept", "technology-intensive" device that will see limited shipments and different release dates for each country. It will start selling in South Korea in late October, but other regions might have to wait until next year. Chances are that the Note Edge will be more expensive than the regular phab as well.

A little more than a week ago, Hyundai Securities analysts said that Samsung plans to ship a fairly modest 1 million Galaxy Note Edge units along with 11 million Galaxy Note 4s in 2014. Samsung's announcement falls in line with this prediction. Previously, the company confirmed that manufacturing the Note Edge is "expected to be complicated", while another Korean analyst added that adapting to the curved screen could become an initial challenge for users.

Do any of you plan to wait it out, or maybe import the Note Edge from abroad? What are your reasons?

iPhone camera is actually quite inferior. Doesn't matter what the fans say. The pictures come out too warm (with 6 even warmer than 5s) and 8mpx is not even near enough. Plus the lack of 4k. 240fps video is nice but even that's nothing new if we look at all the brands.

Hey, I'm under a weird ban. For some reason I cannot post using my phone but can on my desktop. It's pretty bizarre. Unless it's by IP and not username.

As for the topic on hand, this doesn't surprise me considering that this is treading toward niche territory with it's edged screen and all. We'll see what creative devs will be able to do with it in due time.

That's weird. For me it was about the username. Limited on every one of my devices at least.

1 million is a pretty good number for such a relatively new device... good strategy

So this is an article about the Note Edge, all the comments up here are slagging off iPhones. Obsessed much?

You don't have to try and justify your Samsung love to anyone but yourself when you choose what you want to buy. If iPhone specs are on your mind 24/7 then you should probably just buy one of them... :p

That's what android fans do with their time. The truth is that no one outside of their nerdy thoughts cares what they think. People use their money on things they want not what some kid with a hard on for Google thinks

lol, expect sky high prices for this crap, cuz that side-screen doesnt add anything to the user experience, actually it gets in the way when trying to reach parts of the screen with 1 hand
