Galaxy Note Edge was one of the 4 devices Samsung showcased at company’s IFA event back in September. This Korean manufacturer also introduced the most popular one among the bunch, their new Galaxy Note 4 phablet, Gear S Tizen-based smartwatch and Gear VR Virtual Reality headset for the Note 4. Galaxy Note 4 is already selling great even though its availability is limited at the moment and there are some consumers who are waiting for the Galaxy Note Edge. This device is kind of a concept / prototype device from Samsung. It sports an “Edge” screen on the right side of the device and that screen works as a separate panel basically, it changes its content depending on what you’re doing on the main screen. Galaxy Note Edge sports the same software features as the Note 4 and it even comes with the S Pen stylus.
Anyhow, Samsung Tomorrow (Samsung’s Official Global Blog) has just unboxed the Galaxy Note 4 and showed us its official Flip Cover which covers up your phone but lets you access the Edge screen even when the cover is on and closed. They unboxed a Korean version of the device which was safely tucked away in an environment-friendly box with a letter “E” on top of it. Contents of the box, other than the device itself, are: owner’s manual, a USB Cable, a fast charging USB charger, pair of earphones, extra earphone tips, extra S Pen tips and a battery which you have to insert in the device itself before you turn it on. Once again, this is a Korean version of the device and the packaging may differ from market to market. You can check out the full video unboxing below this article.
