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.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
