Samsung dropped a bomb-shell today, by announcing that not only was it going to update its popular phablet line of devices the “Note” series, it was also going to expand the line by adding another device to it.
On the surface the Galaxy Note Edge is pretty identical to its more popular brother, the Galaxy Note 4, same processor, RAM, battery, camera and fingerprint scanner.
The real difference lies with the screen, which has a curved edge, which we saw a while back in some patent leaks, that we erroneously presumed would be the Galaxy Note 4. The Edge’s screen literally goes off the edge of the phone, adding an extra 160 pixels to the side of the phone, meaning additional info can be displayed.
The Galaxy Edge, also has some pretty nice specs up its sleeve, aside from the novelty screen, the Edge comes rocking a 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 chipset accompanied by 3GB of DDR3 RAM, the curved display measures in at 5.6 inches with a super AMOLED display capable of resolution of 1440p.
Round the back is an impressive 16 megapixel snapper, equipped with a f/1.9 aperture, there’s also a removable 3,00 MAh battery, which is housed underneath, the Galaxy Edge’s faux-leather back. The Edge as well as the Note 4, come fresh out the box with Android 4.4.4 KitKat and Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX.
No word on UK pricing or availability at time of writing, but we’ll certainly let you know as soon as it’s announced.
