After launching the curved display Galaxy Note Edge in Japan earlier this month, Samsung is now bringing the device to South Korea. Carriers SK Telecom and KT are set to offer the device in black and white color variants for 1,067,000 South Korean Won, which comes out to the equivalent of $1015.
The Galaxy Note Edge is similar in design to that of the Galaxy Note 4, although the curved display running off to one side means that the device does not feature the metal frame that is seen on Samsung's latest phablet. The South Korean variant of the device features an octa-core Exynos SoC, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, microSD card slot up to 64 GB, 16 MP camera with OIS and 4K video recording, 3.7 MP front camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Also included is an infrared LED that allows the Galaxy Note Edge to be used as a TV remote. In terms of connectivity, we're looking at an LTE Category 6 modem, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, GLONASS, USB 2.0 and MHL 3.0.
Seeing as how Samsung mentioned that the device will be available in limited quantitates, it is likely that the Galaxy Note Edge won't be seeing a wide release. What are your thoughts on the handset?
