Expect to pay more for the Galaxy Note Edge, if you can find one

Galaxy Note Edge Release Date and Price

Samsung at IFA 2014 unveiled two new Galaxy Note phablets, the “regular” Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge, a device that features a two-sided wraparound flexible display. The phone represents Samsung’s second take at smartphones with curved screens, following last year’s strangely curved Galaxy Round, but ZDNet Korea reports that Samsung still isn’t ready to mass-produce such devices in large numbers. 

FROM EARLIER: Galaxy Note Edge hands-on: Samsung’s newest phablet packs a huge twist

Samsung’s executive vice president for the mobile division Lee Young-hee told reporters the Galaxy Note Edge will be released in a limited number of countries, mentioning only Samsung’s home country, South Korea, in the process.

The U.S. is also one of the confirmed markets that will get the handset, with all major mobile operators, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon having confirmed plans to launch it at some point this fall, likely following the October launch of the Galaxy Note 4. No U.S. carrier has shared prices for the Galaxy Note Edge yet, or for the Galaxy Note 4 yet, for that matter.

Lee said that the phone will be more expensive than the Galaxy Note 4 – which is believed to have the same price as last year’s Galaxy Note 3 despite offering better hardware and build quality – without revealing specific details.

The publication expects the curved phablet to cost over 1 million won in South Korea (around USD $982) or 100,000 won (USD $98) more than the Galaxy Note 4, due to its increased manufacturing costs and limited production run.
