It’s certain that one of the most anticipated events for this IFA 2014 was the presentation where Samsung’s the new Galaxy Note 4. This new model is one of the most anticipated of the year, Note after the three won many accolades and is deemed by many as the best Android 2013.
However, the Note has not come only four, the South Korean manufacturer has announced the new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the first smartphone with one side of the fully curved screen, a concept that was seen long ago but now comes true by joining the family.
Before the presentation, leaked images and rumors emerged about the Note Edge, but nothing that has not happened in other events of the manufacturer, however this time, it is surprising that there has been virtually leaks or rumors in recent weeks. We go straight to the technical specifications of the Note Edge, which does not differ from the new Note 4, except for some details:

If we review what it offers, is very similar to the new Note 4 design, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has the same metallic finish on the frames, the back is still plastic but has improved their quality. For riding a SuperAMOLED display with qHD resolution panel (2560 × 1440 pixels) but in this case is slightly lower: 5.6 inches (instead of 5.7 Note 4).
The display is the main protagonist of the curved side. In that area will have access to 7 individual panels through which we can navigate independently of the app you’re using the “principal” (the rest of the screen, come on) screen. They called Revolving UX, we will find tools, playback controls, buttons and more apps, will limit what developers when creating new compatible apps (the SDK is available today).
Of course, another advantage of the Edge is the ability to display information only on that part of the screen, keeping the rest of SuperAMOLED panel off. To enhance this feature , it be will launched with cap sleeves adapted, called Flip Wallet, leaving that part of the screen to view.
In the case of Note 4 will be released in several colors this October, but only Note Edge will be available in black or white and will target specific markets.
