Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Note Edge visits the FCC

Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Note Edge visits the FCC
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge models for AT&T and T-Mobile have already visited the FCC. Late last week, the Sprint version of the handset followed suit. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge features a screen that curves, offering a thin strip of glass that can be used for virtual controls, notifications, news, stock quotes and scores.

With versions of the phone for three out of the four major U.S. carriers having paid a visit to the agency, it would appear that we are not too far away from seeing the model released in the states. Samsung is still not considering the Galaxy Note Edge as anything more than a "limited edition" model. The company expects to ship only 1 million units of the phone this year.

While Samsung has said that manufacturing the device is more complicated than producing the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the company will have to measure the overall demand there is for the phone, to determine whether to increase production of the model.

At first I thought it must have been difficult to create a curved display for the Edge. Then I see their are replica ones with the same curved display. Crazy

The Note series are the Kingpins of phablets. I played with other nameless phones and I get why they copy the Note series, but when I play with them I realize that the Note is the King period. Love or hate Touchwiz it is incorporated well in the Note series with the S pen stylus. The Note 4 was not laggy and had a very nice clean design and screen appearance!

Touchwiz is actually what makes a note a NOTE. But then, I would appreciate if they change the design a lil bit to make it closer to the pure Android UI.

In a year that gave customers only incremental speed bumps and other small changes, Samsung delivered the Note Edge. Kudos to Samsung for being a leader and pushing things forward. While it may be impractical in some ways, I really like the how the "edge" opens up vertical UI. I could see a deeper tablet design with "edge" on more than one side of the screen. Hopefully early next year Samsung will make a Galaxy Tab S with the K1 Denver. Maybe even with an "edge" :)

They probably want to see how real world monkeys destroy the things. Lab tests only cover predicted situations.
