The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is an unusual smartphone with a display that actually curves over one edge of the phone. Samsung uses this extra space to display notifications, menus, the time and data, and other information.

While the screen explains why the phone is called the Edge, the Note is explained by the pressure-sensitive digital pen that comes with the phone. You can use it to write notes, draw pictures, or interact with apps in other ways.

Samsung introduced the Note Edge along with the Galaxy Note 4 in September. Now the company has announced that the Note Edge will be available in the US starting November 14th.

All the major US wireless carriers will offer the phone… but it won’t be cheap. I haven’t seen the pricing for Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon or US Cellular yet, but AT&T will charge $400 for the phone when you sign a 2-year contract. A no-contract Galaxy Note Edge will set you back $946.

Update: Good news! Sprint is offering the phone for a lower price… well, a little lower. You can pick one up from Spring starting November 14th for 24 monthly payments of $35. That comes to $840 over 2 years.

Update 2: T-Mobile will charge $870 over 24 monthly payments of $36.25 each.

The Galaxy Note Edge features a 5.6 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED display, plus an extra 2560 x 160 pixels on the edge display.

It’s powered by a 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and features a microSD card slot for up to 128GB of removable storage.

The phone has a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilization, a 3.7MP front-facing camera, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, an infrared port that lets you use the phone to control a TV, and 4G LTE. It has a 3000mAh battery and supports Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0 standard.

There’s also a fingerprint scanner which you can use to unlock the device, securely access other apps, or check your heart rate.

  1. a technology showcase rather than a true smartphone, although the curved screen of the Galaxy note edge can seduce, its price is too high whicj make the galaxy note 3 note 4 or the galaxy s5 more interesting

  2. I’d be concerned about OS updates over the long run with that device. Wasn’t there an Android phone about 3-4 years ago that had a separate small display for notifications from certain limited apps? I wonder if that phone ever received an OS upgrade?
