Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Preview

Samsung's new Galaxy Note Edge smartphone is essentially the same phone as the Galaxy Note 4, but has a unique 5.6-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED curved display. Not only is it capable of a millionth of a second response times as well as a Multi Window features designed to maximize user experience, but this "unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts, and device functionality -- even when the cover is closed -- all with the swipe of a thumb."

Samsung builds some of the best smartphone cameras in the market. The Galaxy Note Edge looks to continue this trend with a 16MP rear-facing camera with Smart Optical Image Stabilizer, and a 3.7MP front-facing camera with an f/1.9 aperture and a 90-120 degree shooting angle for wide angle group shots.

No Samsung Galaxy smartphone is complete without an "S Pen", which acts as a pen for writing, a brush for painting, or any number of special feature functions like Air Command, Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip, and Smart Selection. The new Galaxy Note Edge also includes "multiple, seamless not-taking methods integrated into Samsung's S Note application that allows everyday tasks to get done faster and more easily." You can type. Write. Even take a picture of notes written down on paper or across a classroom board.

Finally, features like Fast Charge, Ultra Power Saving Mode, multiple microphones, improved speaker phone, built-in Voice Recorder, and an improved Fingerprint Scanner, fill out a robust list of capabilities.
