With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 already available in the U.S. for quite some time, we’ve been wondering whether the Galaxy Note Edge will ever make its way to the region. But now, AT&T and Sprint have announced the smartphone’s arrival in the U.S., thus putting an end to the suspense. AT&T will be the first to sell the smartphone on November 7 while Sprint will start sales a week later on November 14.
Sprint has priced the device at $35 per month for a period of two years under the Easy Pay plan, which roughly translates to an off contract pricing of $840. AT&T on the other hand is asking for a lot more at $47.30 per month for a year or $39.42 for 18 months. Off contract the Galaxy Note Edge on AT&T will set you back by a walloping $945.99 which is more than any flagship Android smartphone in the market right now.
The Galaxy Note Edge is essentially the same as the Galaxy Note 4, but with a curve on one sided which will give you quick access to notifications and other useful information. It features a 5.6 inch 2570 x 1600 resolution display, a quad core Snapdragon 805 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16-megapixel camera on the back, Android 4.4.4 KitKat and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Verizon, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular are expected to carry the smartphone too, but there are no specific details available as of yet. Do you think the steep pricing is justified for the Galaxy Note Edge?
