Ahead of the upcoming IFA fair, Samsung showed yesterday its latest attempt with a curved display that goes by the name Galaxy Note Edge. The display itself is still flat, but on the right edge the display bends so that it extends down to the back of the phone.
According to Samsung, the idea is that the curved edge of the phone should be used primarily for apps and other commands. This makes the management of various functions more dynamic and adapted depending on what you are doing or which app is being used at the moment.
The technology blog The Verge has tested the Galaxy Note Edge and recorded a first impression that shows how the phone works.
On the technical side, the Galaxy Note Edge has largely the same specifications as the Galaxy Note 4. A 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, a Snapdragon 805 processor and a camera with 16 megapixel resolution.
At the time of writing, it is unknown when the Galaxy Note Edge will be available and how much it will cost.
