At the cutting edge: Samsung releases a fancy infographic about the Galaxy Note Edge


Frankly said, little to nobody expected Samsung to showcase a novel device such as the Galaxy Note Edge at its Unpacked event where the Galaxy Note 4 was expected to debut. Of course, the innovative niche device with the display that overlaps the edge won't perform as successfully on the market as its Galaxy Note 4 peer, but this doesn't mean that the device is less interesting.

The Back in September, Samsung released an infographic which emphasized the key features of the device and showed us why Samsung is so proud of its Galaxy Note 4 phablet flagship. However, the novel and intriguing Galaxy Note Edge got treated to such a fancy presentation just now. Just as one might expect, Samsung puts the main focus on the novel curved display of the Edge and the potentially numerous interface interactions it paves the way for. Among the features that are stressed upon are the ability to quickly access apps, customize the overlapping portion of the Edge's display, as well as make use of handy Quick Tools.

Undoubtedly, these features and functionalities are not the sole selling points of the Note Edge - let's not forget that it's as power-laden as the Note 4, which means we get a Snapdragon 805 SoC (or an Exynos 5433 in certain variations of the device), hefty 3GB of Ram, a 5.6-inch Quad HD display, and a 16MP rear shooter with OIS. A powerhouse on the cutting edge, indeed.

No.4 seems really great for people who are in stock exchange. No.3 can help you do some really great and cool customization. Innovative but impractical.

I'm not a fan of Samsung phones/phablets in general but I think at least they're trying something with the Edge, it looks good too, probably their smartest looking device. Sadly no real thought for left/right-handed operation...

and all that can be done without the bended screen, even better on a flat OLED sceen, as it wont destroy beauty of symmetry, wont accidentally touch the side panel, will not worry much if it drop. as usual, another big fail from samsung.

Um it's different. The whole point is to have access to those things by tilting it. Meaning have access to them instantly and out of your periphery. On a flat screen that side bar would be right in your periphery. As usual, another big fail from a Samsung hater.

Looks awesome. If only it wasn't sold in limited productions, it would be in my hot little hands when it releases.

I don't understand the purpose of this. With such a limited production run, what developers but Samsung is ever going to create widgets/apps that work with the edge strip?

Y'all should keep hating while Samsung sells millions of this beautiful beast
