The Galaxy Note 4 just launched here in the US a few weeks ago, and we’ve been anxiously awaiting the Galaxy Note Edge, with it’s curved display. We knew it wasn’t going to be cheap, and we also knew it was coming to all four US carriers. But now we have some pricing details, well at least AT&T has offered up some pricing details, the other carriers haven’t yet. The Galaxy Note Edge’s specs are pretty much identical to the Galaxy Note 4, but there’s a few more pixels on board since it does have that edge of display there. Otherwise it’s a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 16MP camera on the back.
As far as pricing goes AT&T has announced that it’ll cost a whopping $945.99 off contract. If you’re looking to get it on a 2-year contract it’ll be $399.99. On AT&T Next it’s going to be $47.30 per month for 12 months or $39.42 per month for 18 months. So yeah, this thing won’t be cheap. Now this doesn’t mean that this is going to be the price at the other carriers. Because AT&T actually charges the most for an off-contract Galaxy Note 4. So keep that in mind until we get pricing for the others. The Galaxy Note Edge will be on display starting November 7th – that’s this Friday – with it going on sale on November 14th.
So that’s quite an expensive phone right there. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I can’t bring myself to pay that much for a phone, let alone a “first generation” phone like the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. It’s a pretty interesting phone, but at almost a grand off contract, that’s a lot of dough to be dropping for a phone. And people thought the Nexus 6 was expensive.
