There’s no question that the Galaxy Note Edge is a unique device thanks to its display that curves on one side, offering a unique way to access apps and a ticker of information. What remains to be seen is whether that unique feature is attractive to consumers. Samsung knows this and has acknowledged that the Edge is a concept for now.
Samsung Electronics president DJ Lee has said that the Galaxy Note Edge is a “limited concept” phone and rather than a device that’ll be mass produced. That suggests that the Note Edge will be somewhat limited in availability, especially compared to the Note 4.
While the Note Edge’s curved display is definitely something that we don’t often see in the smartphone world, that doesn’t guarantee that it’ll be a success. Plus, I’m sure that it can’t be super easy to manufacture those curved screens. If the Note Edge does take off, Samsung could make its successor more widely available.
What do you think of the Galaxy Note Edge? Do you plan on checking it out when it finally launches?
