Is Galaxy Note Edge giving us a glimpse of Samsung’s future phone displays?
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge comes with an awesome screen, high-end specs, stunning design, fourth-iteration S-Pen, ample storage, unique curved panel and a great battery life. As its name suggests, it sports a curved display on its right side, which works separately from the main screen. The Note Edge is very similar to the recently-released Galaxy Note 4, except its curved screen - a handset that is very well-put together. It packs everything that its maker has refined and offers a great product and smartphone experience money can buy.
Galaxy Note Edge’ 5.6-inch capacitive screen is of 2560 x 1440 resolution, 524 ppi density and has 16M colors. It produces vivid hues with excellent viewing angles and contrast. The secondary screen on its right side is home to other screen options, such as personalized messages, ticker-style notifications, app controls and folders. A recent review of Know Your Mobile remarked that even without the edge display, the main display is already spectacular. The Galaxy Note Edge is in itself a show off of Samsung’s skills in designing displays, it added.
Samsung has been flexible when it comes to designing the display screens of its devices, and tech analysts are speculating that the South Korean tech titan will come up with a revolutionary display in its next innovation, most likely, curves around the device’ edges. On the other hand, others think Samsung is experimenting with displays, and may not bring it to its flagship devices, like the upcoming Galaxy S6.
However, Senior Analyst Jerry Kang of IHD Technology is quite sure the next Galaxy flagship will sport a “dual-edged” display, since he noted Samsung originally planned the Note Edge to have curved displays on both sides, but scrapped the idea and went on with only one side. The next Galaxy phone can be an improvement of the Galaxy Note Edge, just like the Note Edge being a Galaxy Note 4 enhanced spin-off.
Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone is rumored to have a 16 or 20 MP camera and an entirely new design. While the tech world is still expecting for leaks, it is said the phone is internally called “Project Zero” because they have to start from scratch for its design. It indicates something big is in the making.
