Unlike other curved display phone concepts unveiled over the years, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge's screen was described by Samsung's David Park as working like a 'ticker', with notifications and news scrolling along it. Other features include: a 2.7-GHz Quad-Core processor, 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display, 16.0-megapixel camera, 32 or 64GB of internal memory, microSD expansion, 3GB of RAM, all running Android 4.4 KitKat.

According to The Daily Mail, "With the Edge, Samsung is offering a practical use for the curvature.

With the side display, the phone's camera functions more like a stand-alone, point-and-shoot camera, as the shutter button and other functions appear on top when the phone is held horizontally."
