Earlier this year, Samsung boldly revealed the Galaxy Note Edge, which featured a curved screen providing space for notifications and other controls.
Back then, it was said that Samsung would never bring the Galaxy Note Edge due to the high cost attached with the device. Well, looks like all estimates were wrong, as Samsung is all geared up to launch the crazy beast in India.
Until today, there has not been a single word around the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in India. It was bound to happen: Samsung finally teased the Galaxy Note Edge for Indian audience on FoxCrime channel and the eyebrows are raised afterwards, this is a clear indication that the device is coming soon.
In the seemingly official advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, without guessing out on much we can claim that the company has intentionally teased the Note Edge to build much of hype around the handset.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge - Highlighted Specifications

The Galaxy Note Edge has a slightly smaller screen at 5.6-inches, compared to Note 4's 5.7-inch display. However there's one major difference between the two devices. The 5.6-inch screen makes room for a new edge. Yes, you heard that right!
The main purpose for having such a screen is make information more accessible whenever you want. Basically, the Note Edge's display acts as an extended ticker. The ticker bar also acts as an app tray for an easy access to applications.
What hasn't been shown in the advert is the release date of the Galaxy Note Edge. The Galaxy Note Edge is rumored to launch in India by January 2015. The device could be priced upwards of Rs. 65,000. As usual, we'll be tracking this story very closely.
