Galaxy Note 4 with curved screen may turn out to be the 'Galaxy Note Edge'

Samsung's next-generation Note device, the Galaxy Note 4, is heavily rumored to be offered in two variants — a standard variant of a device like the one that was leaked earlier today, and a version with a three-sided curved display. While information on either version is scarce, Samsung recently filed a trademark for the Galaxy Note Edge, which may turn out to be what the device with the three-sided display is called.

A trademark in itself does not reveal anything, or confirm that a Galaxy Note 4 with a curved display exists, as organisations like Samsung trademark names all the time and never use them. Furthermore, even if Samsung were to launch a Note 4 variant with a curved screen, the device will likely be available for sale in limited quantities in niche markets, as has been the case with devices like the Galaxy Round.

It is interesting to see if Samsung does manage to launch two variants of the Galaxy Note 4 in a month's time at the IFA. What do you guys think? Would you be interested in a Galaxy Note 4 with a three-sided screen?
