In the competitive world of advanced technology where high-end devices trying to be flatter than ever and mobiles to be smarter than one another, Samsung
is bold enough to launch its galaxy note edge with one-of-a-kind curved screen and eager to grab its place in this ever growing smart phone market.With a screen size of 5.6 inches and 1,440p HD AMOLED display, Galaxy Note Edge seems to be smaller than previous Galaxy Note 4 but if the edge screen curved at one side is considered, Note Edge is no less than in size and in its new edge-only functions and tools. A resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels is used for device’s display and Snapdragon 805 for processor and an OS of Android 4.4.2 Kitkat.
A primary camera is set up with 16 megapixel smart OIS and 3.7 mp and aperture of 1.9f in secondary camera. Sensor functions for Gesture, Accelerometer, Geomagnetic, Gyroscope, Barometer, UV etc. are included as usual but two more new sensors for Finger Scanner and Heart Rate are added in Note Edge.
The device fairly weighs at 174 grams, which is equal to 6.1 ounces and apparently comes in two colors, Black and White. It can be seen that the battery is improved in Note Edge with 3,000mAh and 50% charging in 30 minutes reduced from former 50 minutes. Unlike usual Samsung devices, the power/lock button is moved to the top end from the side of the device which in turn is replaced by the curved screen.
Here is the most prominent feature of Galaxy Note Edge, the curved screen whichgives quick access to apps, alarms and notifications. Swipe down from the top of the edge screen then multi-window settings will appear and functions like flashlight, voice recorders, time and stopwatch can easily be found and used on the edge screen. The special feature is the ruler tool from edge screen though it will not be in use frequently but yet fascinating to see a rule displayed along the curved end of the screen. The next function dedicated especially for the edge end is the Night Clock which will indicate time during the night time while the flat screen stays off-display.
With the creative curve design used in Note Edge and some more additional functions different from previous Samsung Galaxy series devices, the reaction from
tech-consumers will decide the next trends in smart phones world.
