Galaxy Note Edge launches in first markets

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is now available for purchase, assuming you live in South Korea that is.

With the edge-encompassing, curved-displayed phone having been unveiled during IFA 2014 last month, the innovative handset has now touched down in Samsung’s homeland.

The phone’s Korean launch comes just days after it took its global bow in Japan.

Although Samsung has suggested the Edge will make it to our fair shores at some point, there is currently no word on a precise Galaxy Note Edge UK release date.

A screen-enhanced sibling to the Galaxy Note 4, the Edge pairs a 5.6-inch 2560 x1440 pixel, QHD display with a speedy 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM.

The Edge’s display wraps around the phone’s right-hand side. This curved panel allows users to store shortcuts to their favourite apps or customise the new display space to their individual needs.

Set to be a phone with restricted availability, the Galaxy Note Edge has been described as a ‘limited edition concept’ by Samsung.

With the bendy device adding an S-Pen stylus and 16-megapixel, OIS enhanced rear-mounted camera, the Edge is a truly high-end handset. This has been reflected in the phone’s pricing.

Retailers have hinted that the Edge could cost as much as £650 SIM-free when it finally hits the UK.
