Everything that was Announced at Samsung Unpacked 2014 Episode 2

Note The Date! (get it?)

I just finished watching a YouTube live-stream of Samsung’s big show at IFA. We all expected a new iteration of the company’s flagship phablet, and weren’t disappointed. But there were some unexpected product announcements too. You can see everything for yourself at Samsung’s official media site for the event.

I’m not gonna lie, this is basically a copy-paste job from Samsung press releases, reformatted and with the marketing-speak stripped out so that you can more easily read it all in one place. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get to it!

The Galaxy Note Edge’s unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality – even when the cover is closed – all with the swipe of a thumb. Users can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing.

Howard tells me that it hasn’t yet been confirmed whether or not the Edge is coming to Canada.
