Galaxy Note Edge hits Vodafone with lofty price tag

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has hit Vodafone in the UK, but the innovative handset doesn’t come cheap.

Announced back at IFA 2014 in September, the Galaxy Note Edge pairs a premium array of specs with a revolutionary curved display which wraps around the handset’s right-hand edge.

This panel isn’t just about its innovative curves, however, the 5.6-inch display benefits from a stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel QHD resolution.

With Vodafone becoming the first UK network provider to stock the Edge, this futuristic screen has seen the handset handed a considerable price tag.

Available on Vodafone’s Red XL plan, the Galaxy Note Edge will set wannabe owners back a massive £58.50 per month. This fee is increased further by a £49 up front cost.

Although this lofty price tag sees the Edge bundled with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and a 10GB 4G data allowance, assuming you stick within your contractual allowances, the handset will set you back a massive £1,453 during the 24 month plan.

In a bid to add a little more value to the deal, Vodafone has confirmed those splashing out on the Note Edge will also receive a three month NOW TV Sky Movies Pass and with Spotify or NOW TV Sky Sports access for the duration of the contract.

If you’re not taken by Vodafone’s offering but fancy snapping up the Note Edge, you’re going to be facing a bit of a wait.

The handset is exclusive to the red-hued network until January 9.
