T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note Edge available from November 14th

IMG_4251

Earlier today, Samsung published a press release announcing that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge would be available on sale in the U.S. from November 14th. It will be available on all four major carriers, and the price is set to be astronomical. Although T-Mobile is yet to announce pricing, the Galaxy Note 4 Edge landing/pre-registration page on T-Mobile.com clearly displays the 11/14 date. Confirming information revealed in a leaked memo last week.

It’s unlikely that T-Mo’s pricing will be vastly different to other carriers, and that’s where the bad news starts. On AT&T, it’s $399 ON CONTRACT. Full retail price is $949. On Sprint, it’s $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $35. Taking it to $840 full retail price. So it’ll be around that ball park figure.

Specs include:

  • 5.6-inch 2560×1440 Super AMOLED display
  • 160 pixels on the side Edge screen
  • 2.7GHz quad-core processor
  • 16-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization
  • 3.7-megapixel front camera
  • 32GB of storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Charcoal Black and Frost White color options
  • Android 4.4 KitKat

Will you be forking out for the dual-display Note? Or are you more than happy with the regular Note 4?

    Forgot to mention who gave you the news…

    • skywalkr2

      As far as you know he got tips from 1000 people.

      • TEKHD

        No… Just one… He already corrected post…

      CNN?

    your mom

  • skittle

    The case for the edge should be interesting.

    • Robert Mauro

      …and it should be really simple to design, considering the massive top and bottom real estate that isn’t screen…

      Definitely interested in what solutions the various case manufacturers come up with.

        Nothing to do… Talking about this…

        • thepanttherlady

          And in the article he wrote on 10/30, it clearly displays an internal T-Mobile document stating the Edge was coming 11/14.

        • TEKHD

          The document means nothing… I can print that document… I mean the actual T-Mobile page mentioning 11/14

          ” Samsung published a press release announcing that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge would be available on sale in the U.S. from November 14th”

          That’s news to everyone, not just one forum post. That’s why this article was written, not because of your tip.

        • TEKHD

          Exactly… and he went directly to the T-Mobile page that says 11/14… lol

        • Paul Garrison

          okay?

        • TEKHD

          I am a well respected member of XDA, and we have a code of honor… We always give credit to the developer… to the man behind the code/source or in this case, the news. Bad move.

        • thepanttherlady

          You’re seriously harping on this still? I moved on. You should too.

        • Faster

          Oh Lord. You sound like a 5 foot tall slightly balding man who is trying to impress the ladies at a Tupperware party.

        • TEKHD

          Far from it… 6’1“…

        • Nurdface Gamerhandz

          Unsurprisingly rude response there.

    • jonathan3579

      Acting a little over-entitled, aren’t we?

    • Cam Bunton

      To be fair, I reply to anyone sending me tips to say thanks. But, I can’t, if they don’t leave me any way of contacting them. I’m updating the post with a hat tip shortly.

      • TEKHD

        Thank you, fair enough…

  • Erick Espiritu

    TAKE MY MONEY!!!!

  • SHON

    Both is overpriced :-(

  • g2a5b0e

    Wow. I can’t say I’m surprised, but that’s steep. I have a Note 4 & I’m not sure if the extra added functionality would be worth it. I will find some time to play with one though.

  • SEBA

    Yes, that was my plan from the beginning to get note 4 and jump on edge as as it’s available.

    • skittle

      I too have the Note 4. I am waiting to see how this phone survives a fall if it lands on the exposed edge.

      • SEBA

        Let me know how you make out because I’m not planning any drop tests.

      • CJ

        I bet Otterbox will make a clever case :) I am trying to decide on the Note 4 right now -> moving away from the iPhone.

  • Philip

    It will be short live. Samsung is trying everything. Just like the HTC Evo 3D phone that takes 3D picture. Nobody caught on.

    • TEKHD

      you here… too… lol

  • scarecrow

    Full retail price $840-950 for a cell phone? …The prices are getting beyond ridiculous. It won’t be long until $1000+ is the norm.

    • skywalkr2

      iPhone 6 plus was around this price point and I didn’t see any complaints.

      • scarecrow

        That’s because it’s Apples first 5.5 in display device. If I’m not mistaken, Samsung has had a 5.5 in display since the Note 2.

        • superg05

          And

    • bob90210

      If you don’t like the price, then don’t buy the phone. It’s really that simple. You don’t need this phone but if you really want it, wait a year and it will be half of this price. You have gotten through life so far without one so another year should not be a big deal.

      • scarecrow

        I just bought a One Plus 64gb for $350…so NO…I won’t be buying this.

        • bob90210

          Why are you complaining about the price if you have no intention of buying one?

        • scarecrow

          Because I see prices of phones consistently going up across the board. I think $500 is relatively reasonable…but not when the prices start approaching double that.

        • Faster

          You got ripped off. Now, get back out on the farm and get back to work.

  • Mel

    The formatting of this site is horrible. Can we eliminate the centered formatting?

    • Cam Bunton

      Email me a screenshot. You’re the second person who’s said this now. It’s not showing like that at all on my devices. I can forward it on to admin, see if they can find the problem.

    • Cam Bunton

      If it’s still showing, try clearing your cache or doing a force refresh.

  • loopyduck

    Samsung has always said that this was going to be a limited run device, so the price shouldn’t be too surprising.

  • Aaron C

    That’s a lot of money for a gimmick.

  • So upgrading from my S5 to the Note 4 Edge.

  • Mike

    That’s a nice looking phone. Seems a little gimicky with the edge screen. Bet it will cost almost as much to replace a cracked screen as to buy new. Way too much $ for me. Big and costly is becoming the norm

  • htyoung

    Really torn. I’m on EIP so this is pretty much just my next contract since my GS4 is paid off. Want either this or the Nexus 6. I think the Nexus 6 is my choice, but that means I’ll have to root my gear 2 neo or sell it and buy a android wear watch, which has shorter battery life and less features. Almost willing to get the Note 4 Edge just to keep the watch.

  • Aca

    I had the opportunity to check out Note Edge in one of the BestBuy stores in Chicagoland and I have to say: WHAT A WASTE!!!
    1) phone is way to thick for today’s market standards;
    2) bent side screen is USELESS… I found myself leaning my head to the right almost all the time to see what it actually displays, trying to memorize where or which icon is for what and after all trying to scroll this thing vertically – while the left side (main screen) was just sitting there like a step-child doing nothing…
    3) Price is not even worth mentioning. NOT BUYING, DONE! RIP-off for piece of crap! Bent screen, so what… useless to the maximum, so what they are trying to sell? Just something no one else has… but trust me, market will prove me right – this phone is hittin the wall fairly soon – and it will bury Samsung even deeper than where they are now.
    4) AT&T off contract price is $950, Sprint $850 – Tmobile will probably be around $950… what is wrong wiht this picture? EVERYTHING!!!
    4.1) For this price you can get: Samsung, Sony or Sharp 55″ LED HDTV, 1080p; then an Android Tablet and Playstation 4 … all for that $950 + tax price tag… yes, that is what you get… and you will pay for Note Edge all that… what for ?!?!?!?!

    • Newcleus

      Why would you lean your head to the right “almost all the time” when you can, more easily, justly slightly bend your wrist to turn the phone?

      • Faster

        Because he is a retarded iPhanboy.

        • edfranco1

          Okay! Now how did Apple get into this picture? GET OVER IT

        • Jermaine D. Bynum

          good call, if it was a iphone, the greatest thing on earth

  • DaBrat

    Due to the lack of updates from Samsung on the Note devices, I will skip this one although I have been rocking Samsung since the Vibrant. Moving to the Nexus where I can at least be happy that it will be updated. Too bad I really wanted to try the new Samsung watch.

    • Steven D’Amore

      The notes UI is so advanced that you dont really need samsung to push updates. Its nice to have new features obviously, but the note line does so much more than vanilla android its worth the trade off

      • DaBrat

        Not when the key store on 4.3 is vulnerable

        • Steven D’Amore

          The note 4 and edge should be running 4.4. Not sure if the vulnerability youre talking about was fixed in that build though

  • edfranco1

    I’d love to be the person performing the drop test on this device. It sure will be interesting.

  • DR

    This is a joke, right. This thing was scheduled for release on Nov 14. It’s now Nov. 20th, &, I promise you that I am closer to going to Mars than I am to seeing a note edge.
