Galaxy Note Edge Brings New Meaning to Curved Display
Samsung today announced the Galaxy Note Edge, a large-screened smartphone that has a unique curved edge along one side of the display.The edge provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality. The Note Edge shares many specs with the Note 4, though the display is slightly smaller at 5.6 inches. It uses the same processor (quad-core 2.7GHz) and camera combination (16-/3.7-megapixels), as well as Samsung's TouchWiz user interface and apps. The Note Edge will be sold later this year by all four top national U.S. carriers.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge isn't the first phone to ship with a curved screen, but it's the first with a non-uniform curve that's mostly flat but spills over the edge to cover both the front and the right side. It's similar to a concept phone Samsung showed off a couple of years ago, but now it's here, it's real, and you can actually buy one soon.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a unique Android smartphone thanks to its curved display. Samsung puts the extra pixels to good use, but it could have done a lot more.
Summer is over, and that means it's time for Samsung to announce a new Galaxy Note device. We're live from the NYC event, where Samsung actually bought a large, trendy building in the meatpacking district for this and future events.
