Samsung launches Galaxy Note Edge with edge-curved display

Samsung Galaxy Edge

Frankly, we all tech savvy and you people were waiting only for Galaxy Note 4 and Gear S but as a gift Samsung has also launched a very unique Galaxy Note Edge just after the launch of Galaxy Note 4 at IFA 2014 in Berlin. With a crazy curved display that shows secondary information and helps you work more tasks at a time with ease, it’s quite an surprising device to see. In case if you want to see more details about the device, look at the image gallery below.

This also compatible to work with S-Pen, but want something a little different to set you apart from every other big phone out there. Well, here’s Samsung’s answer to that user group: the Galaxy Note Edge. You might say the plastic version of the Note 4, with all of the same specs included with Note 4 — QHD display, S Pen, 16MP OIS camera — of the latest generation, but with the included one extra twist that it has an extended curved display at one end of the display(See images).

As you can see the one side of the display(left side) is sharp and the rounded side offers you another way to multitask, with small amounts of information occupying the rounded portion while the rest of the display offers a full-screen app.

It’s a pretty awesome idea, and one that we haven’t seen executed to this effect until now. Stay connected with us, we will explore more in the hands one section.
