Samsung Malaysia has introduced the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Malaysia with an edge screen that will change how users interact with mobile devices and applications, said the South Korean headquartered electronics giant.
"With the Galaxy Note series of products, Samsung has been recognised as the creator of an entirely new market and culture of smartphones. We are proud to bring to you an optimised and sophisticated GALAXY Note Edge that will be the perfect mobile companion for the tech savvy and style pioneers," said Lee Jui Siang, vice president, mobile, IT and digital imaging, Samsung Malaysia, during the launch.
"Taking the Galaxy Note experience to the next level, the Galaxy Note Edge provides users with a new way to access information, engage with their mobile device, and express their personality and tastes," said Lee.
"The improved Multi Window functionality lets you make the most of the 5.6" Quad+HD Super AMOLED screen - ideal for smooth multitasking," he said. "You can access apps with full, split or pop-up screens, and change their size and position with one easy swipe. You can even skip music, pause videos and control other apps conveniently, using the Curved Edge display."
The curved edge screen should be informative and intuitive, with quick access and execution to frequently used apps, said Lee. "The Edge screen keeps your notifications and alerts neatly organised on the curved side, without interrupting videos, web browsing or taking attention away from getting work done."
"Incoming calls, texts and emails no longer get in the way," he said. "You can also design your own Edge screen and express yourself by using your favourite images and phrases. The Edge screen allows you to arrange your main app icons aligned to the side so you can leave the rest of your home screen clutter free. Try out the transparent widgets to keep your home screen looking even more stylish."
The Galaxy Note Edge is now available in 'Charcoal Black' and 'Frost White' at all Samsung Experience Stores and Samsung authorised retailers.
