Galaxy Note Edge Set for UK Release on 28 November
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will go on sale in the UK starting with November 28, a few days after Vodafone revealed that the Smartphone will be released in Blighty. Samsung confirmed that Galaxy Note Edge will be arriving on the UK market on Friday 28th.
According to a Samsung spokesperson, “The device will be available to buy from selected retailers from Friday 28h November, with the option to pre-order from Samsung eStore and Carphone Warehouse on Friday 14th November”.
Earlier this week, Vodafone confirmed that the carrier will offer the handset too, having added the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to its “Coming Soon” page. There is no word on the price yet, and neither Samsung nor Vodafone confirmed how much the smartphone will eventually cost.
The Note Edge is definitely not going to be very cheap, especially in the case of SIM-free models. As a matter of fact, some retailers already set a price tag for the SIM-free Smartphone. Therefore, Mobicity is allowing buyers to pre-order the handset for £649.99, but with no work of a certain release date. Mobilefun has set the price of £645 for the off-contract deal.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge features near identical specs and features as the Galaxy Note 4 besides its unique “Edge screen” a secondary display that wraps around the edge of the handset and can be used to display notifications or additional touch controls.
The Smartphone has a 5.6-inch QHD display, powered by a quad-core 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and offers 3 GB of RAM. Moreover, Samsung’s Edge Smartphone brings Cat 6 LTE support, a 16 MP rear camera, and 32GB or 64 GB of internal storage, with the possibility to expand through a microSD card.
Out of the box, the handset runs the Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system and also comes with the same Stylus as the Galaxy Note 4. If you plan to purchase Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, hurry up and place your pre-order as soon as possible.
