Samsung launches Galaxy Note Edge at Rs 64,900

New Delhi, Dec 24: Samsung Electronics has launched the Galaxy Note Edge, the one with a curved screen on the side, which was showcased along with the Galaxy Note 4 at the Samsung Unpacked 2014 event. It will start selling at select retail outlets at Rs 64,900 for the 32GB variant.

The Galaxy Note Edge comes with a curved display around its edge, called the Edge Screen, which is located on the right hand side edge. It gives users quick access to frequently-used apps, alerts and device functionality - even when the cover is closed or the screen is locked. Users get the option of assigning shortcuts to the side when using he phone, and can even turn it into a Twitter timeline or stock market ticker. Samsung has managed to pack in virtual desktop-like working environments which can be switched using the side display or you could also navigate the homescreen or app drawer using this edge.

Like the Note 4, the Note Edge has a Quad-HD screen (1,600X2,560 pixels), a 2.7 GHz quad-core processor, 3GB RAM, 32 GB storage space, a microSD slot with 64 GB support, 16 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation and a 3.7 megapixel front camera. It also has the Samsung S Pen just like we had seen in the Note 4.

The Galaxy Edge screen lets you express your personality and tastes by allowing you to design your own Edge Screen with your favourite images and text including those composed using the S Pen.

The design is certainly unique, it does come with its set of flaws for instance being uncomfortable for left-handed users.
