Early September, when the Galaxy Note 4 was officially introduced to the public, Samsung also unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge, which shares most of Note 4's specifications except it has the display bent over one of the edges. We already knew that Galaxy Note Edge will become available for purchase later than Note 4, but now we have some information about its debut on the US market.
AT&T and Sprint were the first US carriers to announce they will have the Galaxy Note Edge in their stores later this month. While AT&T will start selling the device on November 7th, the release date of the Sprint Note Edge has been set a week later, on November 14.
Both carriers also revealed details on pricing. AT&T will be selling the handset for... take a deep $399.99 with a two-year contract. You can also buy it through their NEXT program for $39.42 for 18 months or $47.30 for 12 months. The off-contract price was set at $945.99. On the other hand Sprint will sell it for $35 for 24 months, or $840 no strings attached.
As I was mentioning above, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge shares most of the technical specifications of the Galaxy Note 4. It has an S-Pen stylus, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor at 2.7 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, 32/64 GB of native storage, and microSD support (up to 128 GB). It also comes with the same 16 MP rear-facing shooter with optical image stabilization, LED flash, and 4K video recording support, and a 3.7 MP user-facing cam with Wide Selfie. Note Edge sports a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display with 1600 x 2560 resolution, while measuring 151.3 x 82.4 x 8.3 mm.
The device is running Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box with Samsung's TouchWiz UI on top of it, while being kept alive by a 3,000 mAh battery. Connectivity-wise it arrives with LTE, HSPA+, WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy, IR blaster, NFC, and microUSB 2.0. It has a rear-mounted heart rate monitor and a fingerprint sensor embedded into the Home button.
