When the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge launched in September this year, we were told it was a “limited edition concept” device, and as such didn’t get our hopes up for a UK release.
Having recently been launched in the US, we’re now told the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will get a UK release after all – though in “limited numbers”.
That’s the story over on SamMobile, with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge’s Danish release pencilled in for December 12.
The site doesn’t specify a source (an “insider”, we’re guessing), but says the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is “bound to” appear in further territories, including the UK.
Other countries earmarked for Samsung Galaxy Note Edge action include Russia and Kazakhstan (SM-N915F); Germany, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Poland, France, Nordic countries, Austria and Portugal (SM-N915FY); and India, Australia, Singapore and Nepal (SM-N915G).
The South Koreans recently promised to bring the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge to Germany if enough people voted, and the release was indeed secured with 120,210 potential consumers yelling out for the phone. Whether or not that translates into sales remains to be seen.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge price is tipped to come in at €849-899 (around £700), which would easily make it one of the most expensive phones on the market.
The unique selling point is a display that curves down the right hand edge. The additional portion can be used to house shortcuts, freeing up space on the main display. It can also act as an always-on alarm clock while the big guy sleeps.
Interestingly, Vodafone lists the phone on its Coming Soon page alongside the Google Nexus 6. Sounds like the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge UK release is definitely Go.
