Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is “a limited edition concept,” only 1 million to be shipped

Samsung logoUnveiled earlier this month along with the Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is not going to be a smartphone for everyone. Just like in Galaxy Round’s case, Samsung seems to have pulled another marketing stunt with the Galaxy Note Edge.

According to Samsung’s DJ Lee cited by ZDNet Korea, the Galaxy Note Edge is seen by the South Korean company as a “limited edition concept.” This information was not shared with the public back in early September when the phablet was revealed, which is why we think it was a simple marketing stunt.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is only a few days away from its market release, but those who are waiting for the Galaxy Note Edge will have to exercise their patience a little longer as the device is expected to arrive later next month.

Unfortunately, customers who want the Galaxy Note Edge won’t be able to get it if they don’t live in the few countries where Samsung plans to release it.

At least one UK-based carrier has confirmed that the Galaxy Note Edge will not be coming in this country. As a matter of fact, the phablet will not be available in the majority of the European countries.

Considering that Samsung plans to produce and ship just 1 million Samsung Galaxy Note Edge units, it makes sense for the South Korean company to not make it available in a lot of countries.

That being said, the Galaxy Note Edge will initially be available in South Korea beginning next month, but it’s unclear in what other countries the phone will be released.

We know for sure that some European retailers will probably reserve a certain amount of Galaxy Note Edge units next month, but they will probably be insanely expensive.

It’s clear that the Galaxy Note Edge will be more expensive than the Galaxy Note 4, but the difference might be higher than anyone could have anticipated with some European retailers asking around €1000 ($1,280) outright for the phablet.

Samsung has yet to announce the suggested retail price for the Galaxy Note Edge, but given the fact that it will only be available in limited quantities, those who really want this device will probably have to pay a lot more for it.

On the other hand, we wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung brings the Galaxy Note Edge to more countries next year if the smartphone is met with impressive demand. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, so stay tuned for more on the matter.
