Is Samsung preparing us for Galaxy Note Edge shortages?

By Stephen Schenck September 24, 2014, 10:18 am

Earlier today in South Korea, Samsung held the press conference we were looking forward to, where it confirmed plans for the Note 4 to become available in the nation a little ahead of schedule, with the phablet being released to the public this Thursday. The company also took the time to talk a little about release plans for the Gear S, Gear Circle, Gear VR, and one we’ve been super-curious about, the Note Edge. But is Samsung already trying to temper our expectations for that unique phablet? Some comments the firm made sure seem to be preparing us for limited availability and a possibly steep price.


Samsung’s been hesitant to provide hard details on either point, but at this event it described the Note Edge as a “limited edition concept” model (think: Galaxy Round) and emphasized how “technology-intensive” its construction is. Estimates had already placed Note Edge availability at as few as one million handsets through the end of the year, an order of magnitude lower than the number of straight-up Note 4s Samsung could be planning to ship. As such, while interested shoppers may be able to find the Edge, don’t count on it coming anywhere close to approaching the Note 4’s retail presencey.

Perhaps we’re just getting worried about nothing, but after all this talk about how sky-high expensive the Note Edge could be, we’d love to get some confirmation that this eye-catching phone will at least be within the grasp of your average smartphone user.
