LONDON – Samsung launched Galaxy Note Edge with double side display and the handset will be available in the first week of January next year in 22 countries.
The announcement by Samsung comes almost a month after the firm said it will release the limited edition Galaxy Note Edge to 22 countries included Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Luxembourg, Nepal, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the UK.
Samsung had launched the Galaxy Note Edge during IFA in September and had announced that it will sell the device in select markets only. Later in the month, the South Korean consumer electronics giant had confirmed the smartphone was a’limited edition concept’, and that it would be selling 1 million units of the Galaxy Note Edge across the globe in 2014.
The Galaxy Note Edge uses Samsung’s flexible-display technology. While the main screen remains flat like previous phones, the right edge extends and curves until it reaches the back. That creates a side display so information such as weather and time can be seen from the side when the phone is laid on a table – such as a nightstand next to the bed.
With the side display, the Galaxy Note Edge’s camera functions more like a stand-alone, point-and-shoot camera, as the shutter button and other functions appear on top when the phone is held horizontally.
As far as specifications are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge features a 5.6-inch Quad-HD+ (1440+160×2560 pixel) Super AMOLED display, and is powered by a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor coupled with Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM.
