AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will carry the Gear S and Galaxy Note Edge. Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy will also carry the devices.



Samsung introduced the new Galaxy Note Edge alongside the Galaxy Note 4, back in September. I did not present the device back then but, seeing that it will soon go on sale in the US, I am going to present it now.

The coolest thing about the Galaxy Note Edge is that it comes with a functional, curved display called the Edge screen. From the Edge screen you can launch apps, interact with your phone, and get interruption-free notifications. You can see the Edge screen even when the cover is closed.
