Definition: Note Edge

A phablet from Samsung that delivered the first unique touchscreen architecture since the advent of smartphones. Rotating toolbars wrap around the curved side of the screen that are customized by the user with app icons, notifications and information.

Note 4 Edge, Note Edge and Note 7
The first Edge model was the 2014 Note 4 Edge with the curved screen on the right side. In 2015, Samsung dropped the numeric designation (the Note 5 was just the Note Edge). There was no Note 6, and the ill-fated Note 7 incorporated the curved screen at both ends like the S7 Edge and subsequent S models (see Galaxy S and Galaxy Note). See phablet.

Another Advantage
In camera mode, the shutter button is in a more comfortable location (top right) similar to a dedicated camera. (Image courtesy of Samsung Electronics Company, Ltd., www.samsung.com)
