Samsung Galaxy Note Edge looks like the Galaxy Note 4 with the same glossy plastic front, faux leather back and brushed metallic sides, but its curved right edge display makes it unique.

The phone comes with a S pen so that users can select apps or improve their digital handwriting experience. The S pen is stored on the back of the Edge.

The Galaxy Note Edge has a 5.6-inch display, which is bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus 5.5-inch display but smaller than Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 5.7-inch display. It also has a 3.7-megapixel front camera and a 16-megapixel rear camera.

The Edge has a multiwindow feature that allows consumers to interact with multiple apps simultaneously. Users can resize windows and seamlessly drag and drop content between apps for added convenience and enhanced productivity, according to the company.

The power button for the Edge is also another unique feature from previous Samsung models. Instead of it being on the right side of the phone, the power button is on the top of the device.

The Galaxy Note Edge, which costs $946 off-contract at AT&T, runs on an Android operating system and comes in charcoal black and frost white.
