Samsung Galaxy Note Edge release date… in Japan


We haven’t heard many details about the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the phablet that was announced together with the Galaxy Note 4, at the 2014 IFA in Berlin. Sure, we know all about its looks and internals, but details like exact pricing and availability have somehow failed to surface. We’ve heard reports that the Galaxy Note Edge will indeed be very expensive — and some online retailers are already taking pre-orders on it, though, without disclosing the final price — but when it comes to availability, aside from UK pre-orders mentioned, we’re only hearing reports of North American availability on carriers like AT&T and US Cellular.

Samsung officially announced, at the beginning of this month (October), that the Galaxy Note Edge will be available later in the month; however, exact details were not given out this time around either. However, according to Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo, the Galaxy Note Edge will be available starting tomorrow, October 23, Thursday. That day will only see availability to the black version though, with the white variant expected to land sometime next month.

Japan seems to be the only country at the moment (and the first one at that) where the Galaxy Note Edge will be available. Other regions and markets will follow, however, Samsung is not planning on making the smartphone widely available (like with the Note 4), and initial estimates have Samsung only shipping about one million units until the end of this year.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge’s unique feature is its screen, which is curved, with the right edge bending around on the side. The space is used to display information and quick access to certain features. Aside from the curved display, the phablet also packs flagship-worthy specifications, including a 2.7 GHz Quad Core Processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 16 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization.

All of the above bring us to this question: are you eager for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to be available in your market/region? If yes, how much would you be willing to pay for such an unconventional device? Let us know in the comments below!
