Here Is Why You Should Love Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
We had seen the leaked shot (albeit curved on a wrong end), but we didn't believe it was going to come this soon. Samsung surprisingly launched its latest, and may we say quite adventurous, Galaxy Note Edge yesterday at its press event in Berlin. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is the same pretty Note but with an edge. While it was expected that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 would be star of the entire event, it seems as if Note Edge is snatching some portion of that limelight, and deservedly so. While the first-of-its-kind and funky looking devices are always taken with a laugh and a smirk but this first attempt from Samsung actually looks quite genuine and clever. The Edge will not only help in saving battery by literally dividing the screen into parts, but will also provide better viewing angles while it rests on the desk. So here is what this device actually is and why we think you will eventually like this smartphone design.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge:
Bringing its Youm display with an edge, Samsung has launched its new big thing which will definitely be adored. While real-life usage of phablet will make us more certain about its benefits, even from the looks and talks of it, the device looks friendly and useful. The edge of Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is its curved display; display is curved from only one side of the smartphone. Samsung claims that this type of display designing has three primary advantages.
These advantages of a curved display include: saving battery life as you no more require to fire up an entire display just to check some notification; secondly, it lets you easily look at your social network and other updates quite straight away; and finally, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge provides an additional level of control which will be better harnessed with developers working on customizable apps, icons, and features for the curved part of the device. This plastic AMOLED display curve comes with a whole set of unique features where the edge is used for notifications, news, sports scores, playback controls, and the best of all, as a night clock!
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is in simple words is the powerful and loved Samsung Galaxy Note 4 but with added features and completely new look thanks to the curve! Note Edge gets all the new and improved features of Note 4 along with the latest S Pen powered with Edge-specific actions and features taking the device to a whole new level.
While the design still largely remains same to Note, except for the curve part, Samsung has moved its right-side power button to the top. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge also carries the same faux leather back cover as the Note 4. Although it's almost all same to Galaxy Note 4, here is the specifications list for a quick look:
- 5.6-inch Quad HD display with 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution
- Additional 160 pixels for the edge
- Snapdragon 805 quad-core 2.7GHz processor
- 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization module
- 3.7-megapixel front camera with wide f/1.9 aperture for better selfies
- Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz on top
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is expected to arrive at a higher price than the Note 4 and will be available from October.
