Back in September 2014 Samsung introduced Galaxy Note 4 and a surprise, Galaxy Note Edge, which had a curve display on its right. That was the first time a company had successfully executed a futuristic concept like that, to that point manufacturers were playing with the ideal display sizes, materials used for the device body and features. Samsung with Note Edge introduced something totally new to the mix, and well people were divided about this concept, for some it was innovative and some still think that it is a totally redundant feature. Despite the mixed reception, Galaxy Note Edge has done pretty well, to date the company has managed to sell 630,000 units globally.
Looking at the unit sales figures and comparing it to the sales figures of Note 4, it wouldn’t seem much. Samsung sold 4.5 million units of Note 4 in the first month of its availability. The company’s Note series is well known for its premium specifications and this time around the company tried to inculcate some of the concepts from the Note series in their S-series flagships. Looking at the relative success of the Note Edge, Samsung is also planning to introduce a Galaxy S6 Edge, which will be a dual-sided curved variant.
When any new concept or technology is introduced consumers don’t catch its heads on and it takes time for it to become main stream. We can see Samsung introduce some more interesting concepts by playing with displays and features in the future. The company at the MWC is ready to introduce the Galaxy S6 Edge, inspired from the first Note Edge, let’s see what features will Samsung introduce this time around and will they be able to make edgy display trendy or not.
