Samsung unboxes the Note Edge on camera - check out the package
Samsung Tomorrow – Samsung Electronics' official blog – has posted an unboxing video of the Galaxy Note Edge – a device that is arguably anticipated by a lot of tech heads around the world, though, not all of them will be able to get their paws on it.

The handset in the video is the Korean version, hailing from Sammy's home country, which was, surprisingly, the second one to get the phone (Japan was the first). The video treats us to the opening of the Edge's paper box, shows us the accessories (headphones + tips, charger, USB cable, battery, extra tips for the S Pen, manual), and, of course, lets us view the removal of the protective stickers, which we know everyone loves to see. Anyway, at the end of the video, we also get a glimpse of the flip wallet – a separately sold protective case for the Edge, which is made of leather, leaves the Edge Screen view-able when closed, and has a slot for a single credit card.

Where the Galaxy Note Edge will strike next – we are unsure. We do know, however, that a Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile versions of the device have passed through the FCC, so an US launch is expected, though, we've no idea when (update - official information now says 14th of November). We highly doubt that anyone reading this has been living under a rock, but we'll just remind you that Samsung claims that the Edge Screen is a hard thing to manufacture and thus – the Note Edge will be sold in limited quantites, with sporadic launches across the world, rather than a scheduled, all-guns-out roll-out.

Samsung fans – are you waiting for the Note Edge, or have you bought the Note 4 already?

I am the only one who thinks this additional edge screen is absolutely useless and Note 4 is hundred times better ?

Wow it looks so nice with that curve on the side. And also that flip wallet looks nice with the device as well.

What you see in this unboxing may not be what you get. The unboxing for the note 4 also showed a pair of headphones but none came with the AT&T model from Amazon.

AT&T has been taking the headphones out of the package for a long time. My Note 3 didn't come with any. Instead of headphones, AT&T gives you tons of non-removable bloatware.

Wish Samsung had made just "Galaxy Edge" without the S-Pen and kept the price down. The "edge" is all about touch, not pen. Sadly, this crazy $400 contract / $950 off contract price is not going to help establish the edge display as anything more than a status item. It's like Samsung has predestined it to failure, especially considering that this will be a locked down phone without the ability to root (at this time) on the two most popular US carriers.

Yeah, pretty spendy, I agree. The Note 4 at ~$800 also. With that perspective though, it's only ~$100 more for a totally unique feature for which there is much interest. Some competitors charge that much for a little more built in storage. Removing the "pen" would make it something other than a Note series phone "phablet", and remove it from the list of many that want this feature. I've found the pen very useful, accurate, and smudge free. Right now it is the most feature packed phone money can buy (imo) and is within reach, though not a painless one.
