It hasn't been long since Samsung first introduced two of its new age handsets in the form the new Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge handsets. And already we have seen a kind of excitement surrounding both the handsets since their eventual unveiling at this year's IFA event in Berlin.
While we are yet to settle down with all the excitement related to both the handsets, there are still details to be found related to the the devices' release dates and pricing. And for the time being we are concentrating on the new Galaxy Note Edge.
A China Mobile employee known by his Weibo name "Jack_Zhu Njie" recently published a post in which he stated that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will arrive in China at the price of more than 7,000 Yuan, which translates into a massive $US 1,139. And that's quite the steep price considering you are interested in the handset.
But why do you think Samsung wants you to break the bank in order to own a unit of the Galaxy Note Edge? What's so special about it (apart from its curved display)? We take a look at the top 5.
One of the reasons why the Note Edge could cost a fortune could be because of its intense new design. The handset does provide users with a new way to access information, while engaging with their mobile device. Users can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing.
The Note Edge also comes with a coming-of-age screen. The precise color saturation and the high contrast of 5.6-inch Quad HD + Super AMOLED display will offer great viewing angles while also supporting fluent and vivid colors. The display factor is one of the reasons for the handset to be a costly buy.
With the Note Ege, users can shoot brighter and clearer images using Rear and Front camera. A 3.7MP front-facing F1.9 lens camera, and a 16MP Smart OIS back camera is expected to provide you the best results in terms of imaging and quality playback of HD videos.
Here's a new way to take notes on your new Galaxy Note Edge handset. Take photos with Photo Note and instantly convert analog to digital. You can also edit notes, change colors, and put in additional memos with S Pen easily. We are waiting to see how that pans out.
The Galaxy Note Edge comes charging speed improvement, meaning waiting times of Galaxy Note Edge have decreased significantly. The device will get half charged within an hour, and could go from zero to 50% in only 30 minutes. That's a big deal since most of us do tend to utilize the full potential of a powerful device once in hand. And that might take a toll on the battery.
