Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Note Edge will be available in the U.S. beginning Nov. 14. The Galaxy Note Edge made headlines earlier this month when it was announced with a functional, curved display for “interruption-free” notifications for its users.
The phone features a 5.6-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, that is scrollable as it wraps around the right edge of the device. 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.
Other standouts from the new device include a 16 MP rear-facing camera with 8x digital zoom and Optical Image Stabilization, and a 3.7 megapixel front facing camera with a wide angle lens. Of course the phone also features an S Pen, that includes “mouse-like functionality” so you can cut and paste, drag and drop, and do more than before according to the company.
Multi Window will allow 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 Charging 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 Knox 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.
