Galaxy Note Edge to be commercially available in Japan later this month, and revolutionize the way consumers use their mobile device
Tokyo, Japan – October 8, 2014 – Samsung Electronics today announced the commercial availability of the Galaxy Note Edge at the Galaxy Note Edge World Tour 2014 in Tokyo. The Galaxy Note Edge will be available through KDDI and NTT DoCoMo by the end of October, and is currently available for pre-order.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Galaxy Note Edge to Japanese consumers for the first time in the world,” said Tomonori Miwa, Sales Director of Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics Japan. “Samsung has demonstrated its leadership in the technology industry by pioneering numerous innovations, as evidenced in the Galaxy Note Edge. I believe the Galaxy Note Edge will meet the aesthetics of the most sophisticated Japanese consumers.”
The Galaxy Note Edge takes the mobile experience to the next level with its one-of-a-kind Edge Screen which maximizes the unparalleled larger-screen Note experience by offering users a revolutionary way to use their mobile device. In so doing, performing everyday tasks and multitasking has become simpler and more efficient, echoing Samsung’s consumer-centric approach that catapulted the Note category to success.
The unique, curved Edge Screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functions – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb. Users can also receive instant notifications on the Edge Screen when watching videos. Meanwhile, camera control buttons have been placed on the Edge Screen, so that users can capture and record their special moments while looking through a clean screen absent of any buttons.
The Edge Screen also helps users express their personality and tastes by allowing them to design their own Edge Screen with their favorite images and text, including those composed with the S Pen. Additionally, useful tools, such as ruler, stopwatch, timer, flashlight and voice recorder, can be launched through the Edge Screen’s Quick Tool feature.
