Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Release Date: Samsung Announces November 14 USA Release Date With New Unboxing Video
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, a smartphone similar to the new Galaxy Note 4 with the addition of a touchscreen on the right edge of the phone, has been announced for a November 14 U.S. release date, and Samsung was kind enough to provide us with their own unboxing video.
Samsung announced that Americans will be able to pick up a new Note Edge from major cell providers and Best Buys with a Samsung Experience Shop starting at the end of next week. They also provided us with their own unboxing video (found at 9to5Google), preempting the flood of videos that'll start hitting YouTube in about a week. You can see everything that comes in a Samsung Galaxy Note Edge box in the video below.
The big selling point of the Galaxy Note Edge is, of course, the Edge screen. The screen is really just a 160-pixel extension of the phone's display that curves around the right edge of the device, easily accessible with the right thumb. The Edge screen allows the user to get notifications without disrupting what's happening on the 5.6-inch main screen. Users can also use the Edge screen to scroll through their apps and load up a program without having to go back onto a home screen.
Another neat little feature of the Edge screen is the "night clock mode." Users can place the phone face-up on a bedside table and have it display, on a low-light setting, the time and any alarms they've set, letting the user quickly check the time without having to get up and unlock their phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge comes with a 16 MP camera on the back of the phone and a 3.7 MP camera on the front. Sitting at the higher end of smartphone memory with 3 GB of RAM, the Edge comes with 32 GB of storage that can be upgraded by up to 128 GB through the microSD slot. You can pick one up in the States starting November 14.
