Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Comes with an Additional Display on its Edge

September 5, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Seldom has Samsung failed to induce innovation along with the Note series. If it was the introduction of their initial smartwatch to accompany the Galaxy Note 3 that charmed us last time, the launch of the next in Note series saw the company pushing the limits beyond expectations.

It wasn’t long ago that the Gear Virtual Reality headset was unveiled by Samsung as an exclusive for the Note 4. But that hasn’t stopped the company from bringing on newer technologies.

Samsung has unveiled the new Galaxy Note Edge smartphone. Let’s go straight with what that Edge has for us.  The Edge, as the name suggests, comes with a new two side display  – one on the front and one on the right side.

Don’t thinks it’s any split display, it is an integrated display one running into the other. While the normal front display would be showing up the way it always does, the side display which is not more than a strip of screen comes with special dedicated tasks that make app handling and notification display easier.

Be it for viewing received messages or for quickly accessing your favorite apps, this edge screen display is purely a convenient addition.

Samsung has added the few utility widgets exclusively for the edge screen display and will also be rolling out the application programming interface for the edge screen display. That would just extend apps customizing the Edge screen display the way it is needed.

Galaxy Note Edge would be sure missing out the Gear VR,  which has been labeled as exclusive for the Note 4 as of now. The 5.5 inch display delivers QHD display resolution of 1600 x 2560 with a pixel density of 524ppi. Powered by the next gen GPU Adreno 420, the device comprises the Snapdragon 805 chipset with the quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz.

Unlike the Note 4, a 64 GB version would also be featured in the Note Edge along with external storage support.

The 16 MP rear camera features the Smart Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) for shake-free images. Along with that comes the front facing camera at 3.7 MP. Note Edge would be juiced up by the 3000 mAH battery and would run on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.


The Galaxy Note Edge would be available in the usual Samsung colors of black and white and is expected to hit the markets during the latter part of this year.

Even with everything unveiled, Samsung has been keeping the masses clueless about the pricing of the Note Edge and is expected to sport a price tag that would be tad above the Note 4.
