Samsung pioneered the phone with a curved display, now the company is innovating again with the Galaxy Note Edge.
Samsung has added a new twist to its annual "Unpacked" event by introducing a phone that has a bent display. Samsung pioneered the phone with a curved display (Samsung Galaxy Round), now the company is innovating again with the new Galaxy Note Edge.
Much of the phone's features are similar to Samsung's Galaxy Note 4, which was also announced today. But what makes the Note Edge unique is its bent edge (see photo) that offers a new way for users to access information. Samsung uses this edge to display notifications and small bits of information.
The idea is to use it as a notification panel for your updates. To make that possible, Samsung had to add a new row to the screen, bringing the total resolution to 2560×1600.
Similar to the Note 4, the Note Edge has a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805, 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage, 16-megapixel rear camera, and 3000 mAh battery. Available in Charcoal Black and Frost White, the Note Edge will hit the markets later this year.
