Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930)’s Galaxy Note Edge with curved display will be a ‘limited edition concept.’ But unlike Galaxy Round, it will be sold in several markets around the world. Its edge screen that provides quick access to features such as most used apps, messages and other features has aroused curiosity among consumers.
AT&T and T-Mobile versions of Galaxy Note Edge pass through FCC
Though Samsung hasn’t officially announced the U.S. release date for Galaxy Note Edge, we can expect the device to arrive soon as it has cleared one more regulatory hurdle. GottaBeMobile recently spotted the AT&T Note Edge model number SM-N915A passing through the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC filing didn’t indicate a release date, but it suggests that the device is moving behind the scenes.
GottaBeMobile also spotted the T-Mobile version passing through the FCC certifications. Verizon and Sprint Galaxy Note Edge are the next. Once they go through FCC, Samsung and its telecom partners may announce the release date and pre-orders. U.S. Cellular won’t be carrying the Note Edge on initial release. Along with South Korea, China and Japan, United States is expected to be among the first few countries to get the device.

The white version will arrive in November.
