The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is coming to the United States on November 14th. The phone, which sports a Super AMOLED display that curves over the right side, has up until now only been available in Japan and Samsung's home turf of South Korea, but in less than two weeks Americans will be able to get their hands on the innovative new smartphone. If that wasn't enough, the Note Edge will be coming to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular.
As for that display, as we found in our hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, it's a 5.6-inch quad HD (2,560x1,440... plus an extra 160 pixels on the side) Super AMOLED number that wraps around the right edge of the device. That curved portion is treated like a second display that's used to display notifications, a clock, quick launch app icons, and more. It's kind of like a more seamless evolution of 2010's Samsung Continuum.
The Galaxy Note Edge also sports many of the same features as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, including a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS, S Pen support, multi-window, and more. It's essentially a Galaxy Note 4, but with a curve.
AT&T has revealed their pricing for the phone, and if you were expecting it to be cheap, well, we've got bad news for you. The phone will be available for $0 down on AT&T Next (with monthly payments of $47.30 for 12 months or $39.42 for 18 months), $399.99 upfront on a 2-year contract, or $945.99 if you want it off-contract. Yeah, not cheap. But some AT&T stores will have the Note Edge on display starting Friday, November 7th, so there's that.
Sprint will be offering the Note Edge on their Easy Pay plan for $0 down and $35-a-month over 24 months. That adds up to $840, but there's no saying whether or not that will be the off-contract retail price for the Note Edge on Sprint.
T-Mobile has the Note Edge pegged for $0 down (pending credit approval) and 24 payments of $36.25 — that comes out to $870 all-in, or the price you'll pay upfront if you're buying without financing.
Now that we've finally got pricing and availability for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in the US, who is thinking about getting one?
