There will reportedly be no Galaxy Note Edge 2 this year, accompanying the upcoming and highly anticipated Galaxy Note 5, at least that’s what a recent report claims. The International Radio Show, aka IFA, is where usually Samsung unveils the fall flagship, the class-defining Galaxy Note. Last year, the Galaxy Note 4 came in pair with the Galaxy Note Edge, a fairly similar device with a curved screen on the right edge.
Instead, the report claims that we will only see the Galaxy Note 5 at the 2015 IFA. Said Note 5, that will have no Galaxy Note Edge 2 sibling (at least not at the Berlin show), is expected to pack a 5.9-inch display with QHD resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels), Exynos 7422 processor, 4,100mAh battery, and below eight millimeter profile.
The rumor does not dismiss the Note Edge 2 completely. It might arrive at a later date, but, we wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung decided to do something more in the vein of the Galaxy S6 edge, with a double edge screen. We’ve heard a lot about a certain Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, a larger variant of the phone, and it would make sense to add an S-Pen to that, and call it the Note Edge 2 (or something else). This would also lend some sort of credence (if at all), to the recent rumors we’ve heard earlier today about another possible flagship towards the end of the year, which might just be the baby of the Note Edge and the S6 Edge.
What do you think would be the smart choice here, if you were Samsung?
