Note Edge release date in the US is November 14th, coming to all major carriers

Samsung just announced that it is bringing its edgy phablet to US carriers and retailers as soon as next Friday, November 14th. The unique Note Edge will be arriving in Charcoal Black and Frost White on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular. In addition, Samsung's own Experience Stores, and Best Buy, will also be stocking the bendy handset. Prices at the different retailers will be announced at a later date, though.

As a reminder, the Note Edge features the same awesome specs of the Note 4, like a 5.7" Quad HD display, accompanyied by the S-Pen stylus, a Snapdragon 805 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and a 16 MP optically-stabilized camera on the back. It's just that a part of the display is curved towards the right-hand side, hence the official 5.6" count, allowing you to view notifications and tickers there, as well as use it as a navigational interface in certain apps like the camera. Any takers?

Samsung introduces a stunning new smartphone design with a curved edge display

 

DALLAS - Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung) today announced that the Galaxy Note® Edge will be available in the U.S. beginning Nov. 14. The Galaxy Note Edge is the first smartphone of its kind with a functional, curved display for interruption-free notifications.

 

The 5.6-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED® screen has a high resolution with more pixels, making the display sharper, brighter and more immersive than ever. The Galaxy Note Edge delivers unique smartphone experiences with a scrollable screen that wraps around the right edge of the device, extending the screen with room to do and see more. The Edge screen gives access to email, Internet, apps, notifications, news and more without interrupting the content on the main screen. Night clock mode dimly displays the time, alarm and weather and is easily viewable when the Galaxy Note Edge is placed bedside. Consumers can customize the scrollable Edge menu panel with their favorite apps for quick access; the apps are always available, from any screen.

 

The Galaxy Note Edge is also equipped with all the advanced features of the new Galaxy Note 4, including:

·         A 16 MP rear-facing camera with 8x digital zoom and Optical Image Stabilization for decreased photo blurriness, and a 3.7 megapixel front facing camera with a wide angle lens that captures more friends and fun in the frame.

 

·         The S Pen™ is more precise than ever before and handwriting is more natural when interacting with the phone. With mouse-like functionality you can cut and paste, drag and drop, and do more than before.

·         Samsung’s unique Multi Window™1 feature allows consumers to interact with multiple apps simultaneously. Users can resize windows and seamlessly drag and drop content between apps for added convenience and enhanced productivity.

·         The fastest charging available on a Samsung phone and power-saving solutions. Adaptive Fast Charging2 can charge a battery up to 50% in about 30 minutes for added power in a hurry. Ultra Power Saving Mode increases standby time up to 24 hours on only 10% of battery life, offering more battery power when users need it most.

 

The Galaxy Note Edge also features Samsung’s KnoxTM 3 security platform for Android, offering comprehensive mobile solutions for both work and play by separating personal and work data on one device. Knox meets the strict security requirements of regulated industries and government agencies. Knox addresses the market gap to provide enterprise- and consumer-friendly devices to businesses and their employees. Samsung is meeting the need by making Android the number one choice for a secure and cost-effective platform for business use.

 

The Galaxy Note Edge will be available in Charcoal Black and Frost White. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will carry the Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy will also carry the device. Carriers and retail partners will confirm specific pricing, availability and specs.

 

Galaxy Note Edge accessories will include a Wallet Flip Cover in Charcoal Black and Frost White and power solution options including a Wireless Charging Battery Cover and spare battery charging system.
