Launched this September in Japan and Korea the fervently-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is finally hitting the US market. The phone will be available at various carriers starting this month, and AT&T will be the first US service provider to add the handset to their list of offerings with price tag starting from $399.99 on contract.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge for AT&T
Why this Samsung Galaxy Note Edge phablet is so unique that almost every one wants to put their hands on it? Perhaps, because it sports a screen with a unprecedented curved right edge that proves to be very useful for getting access to your e-mails, news, notifications and apps. Additionally it looks great and enriches the whole design of the phone.
Apart from that, its specs are also pretty impressive starting from its 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD resolution, a powerful 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 paired with 3GB RAM to great optics represented by a 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization. Going deeper the running Android 4.4.4 Kitkat handset goes on sale with support for LTE, HSPA+, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and microUSB 2.0. Furthermore, it features a heart rate monitor and a fingerprint scanner hidden in the Home button. Additionally, the pre-installed OS with the Samsung’s TouchWiz UI on the top of it will soon get the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade.
Now, let’s move to the AT&T offer details. The carrier provides you with three options of purchasing the Galaxy Note Edge. First one requires signing a two-year service agreement, but gives you the opportunity to get the phone for $399.99. The second option is off-contract one, so you won’t have any commitments but the handset’s price increases to $945.99, so the difference is considerable and frankly speaking, quite painful to your wallet.
If these two options doesn’t suit you, you may also get the phablet on the carrier’s instalment plan. AT&T Next 18 requires paying $39.42 per month, whereas Next 12 – $47.30 per month. The carriers offers the handset in two classic color variants: charcoal black and frost white.
Unfortunately, according to the latest report, the Galaxy Note Edge is a limited edition device, so it will be within your reach either for limited time or in limited quantities. It should be also mentioned that the device’s accessibility rate is different in each region and is likely to follow the launch path of the Samsung’s Galaxy Round. So if you really want this handset, you’d better not wait to long with the decision on buying it.
If for some reason AT&T isn’t your favorite carrier, don’t worry. The Galaxy Note Edge will join T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular’s offers on November 14th.
