Samsung has introduced the Galaxy Note Edge, a new smartphone that features a curved edge screen.
Samsung’s relentless pursuit of the best in innovation through the optimization of mobile technology and the user experience has led to the debut of the innovative and unique Galaxy Note Edge. Taking the Galaxy Note experience to the next level, the Note Edge provides users with a new way to access information, engage with their mobile device, and express their personality and tastes. The Galaxy Note Edge’s unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb. Users can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing.
The Samsung Galaxy Edge appears to draw from a patent we posted on last November that details a Galaxy smartphone with a three-sided display that wraps around the edges of the device.
Galaxy Note Edge will be available in “Charcoal Black” and “Frost White” in select markets through Samsung’s retail channels, e-commerce and carriers later this year. We’ll post a video walkthrough of the device once available.
