Description

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a unique device and a first for Samsung: it comes with a screen that curves towards one of the edges of the phone and allowing users to quickly glance at notifications and also use this area to add more controls to the device. The Galaxy Note Edge is a phablet at heart: it packs a 5.6-inch 1440 x 2560-pixel (Quad HD) display. It's also got a powerful Snapdragon 805 system chip and a 16-megapixel OIS camera.
