Good news, everybody! The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will arrive in the U.S. this month! And what’s more, it’s going to be widely available!
Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge will bring its unique, curved side screen to the U.S. on November 14, and it’ll be available on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon Wireless. So far we’ve gotten pricing details from AT&T and Sprint:
- AT&T – $0 down and 24 payments of $39.42 with AT&T Next 18 or 20 payments of $47.30 with AT&T Next 12. Also available for $399.99 with two-year contract or $945.99 with no commitment. Will be displayed in “select” retail stores and available via direct fulfillment on Nov. 7. Full in-store availability to come at a later date.
- Sprint – $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $35 (retail price of $840).
As a refresher, the Galaxy Note Edge has a spec list that’s largely similar to the Galaxy Note 4, save for it’s slightly smaller display. The one big difference is the Galaxy Note Edge’s curved side display, which is a 160 pixel panel that can display notifications and app shortcuts without disturbing whatever you’re doing on the main screen. The Note Edge’s spec list looks like this:
- 5.6-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display
- 160 pixels on the side Edge screen
- 2.7GHz quad-core processor
- 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization
- 3.7-megapixel front camera
- 32GB of storage
- microSD card slot
- 3GB of RAM
- 3000mAh battery
- Charcoal Black and Frost White color options
- Android 4.4 KitKat
Samsung previously described the Galaxy Note Edge as a “limited concept device,” so it’s awesome to learn that it’ll be available on all five big U.S. carriers. Sure, it’s a bit pricey, but that kinda comes with the territory of a high-end smartphone that includes a unique hardware feature.
So now that Galaxy Note Edge availability details are trickling out, who’s buying?
