At the IFA event in Berlin, Samsung launched 2 phones – Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge. While most specs of both these devices are same, the Galaxy Note Edge comes with a curve on an end which Samsung says will serve multiple purposes. Lets have a look at both the devices.
Samsung Galaxy Note 4:
Galaxy Note 4 is the latest device in the highly successful Note series. With this device, Samsung hopes to recuperate the less earnings in the previous quarters.
The screen size of the Note is 5.7″ with QHD resolution (2560 x 1440). The phone will feature the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, 3GB of RAM, either 32GB or 64GB of storage and a microSD card slot to add up to a further 64GB. The primary camera will be 16 megapixel along with optical image stabilisation and a dual LED flash all featuring.
Additionally, it will have the finger print sensor, heart rate monitor from the Galaxy S5. Samsung have added the UV light sensor next to the camera for this device.
Galaxy Note 4 will be launching in October but Samsung has not revealed the pricing details yet.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge:
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a unique device launched by Samsung which has a bend on one side of the screen. Samsung says it will serve multiple purposes.
When the screen is off, the folded edge will be able to show time and notifications. At night Samsung envisions it acting like an alarm clock. Wake the screen and it will show you notifications as well as shortcuts to timer, flashlight and even a ruler – which actually makes some sense in this orientation.
In normal use you can decide what goes along the side. You can put the shortcuts that typically appear along the bottom of the screen there, or put a stock ticker or Twitter feed on the curved edge.
The final use for it is to act like a virtual desktop, allowing you to switch quickly between several screens.
The release date and pricing details of the phone are not revealed yet.
