The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 will once again shine, and those looking for a truly amazing Phablet may just want to wait until the late 2016 release. The good news is the new Edge 3 will be launched in most markets worldwide, unlike the original which only became available in limited markets. We’re expecting to see some new changes including a more durable outer body, larger screen display, faster processor, and more memory options.
The Note Edge 3 will debut just before the holidays, and those looking for a real treat will find it in the newest Phablet. The new Note Edge will compare to the Note 5, but will appeal to a different subset of users looking for something a bit more functional and offer a wider array of options. The unique Edge 3 concept will be especially popular for those looking forward to one of the best smartphones 2017.
The following preview details all on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 rumors, specs, features, concept, price, preorder, and release date.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Rumors
Many Galaxy Note Edge 3 rumors are already in circulation giving us a really good idea of things to come. With the days of being a limited market release a thing of the past, the new Note Edge will make it to all markets worldwide. Sammy is hoping to keep up with Apple in hopes of becoming the #1 smartphone manufacturer worldwide with the Chinese start-up Xiaomi close behind.
The newest rumors on the Galaxy Note Edge 3 have included a bendable, or even a fully-foldable display. We’ve been hearing this for some time as Samsung has all-but confirmed a foldable concept smartphone in the future, but hasn’t disclosed which flagship or if a new model will debut. We’ll be following this rumor very close as it’s believed that Samsung has already filed for a patent, but no new confirmation is available
Below are all the latest and great Note Edge 3 rumors in detail including the specs, features, concept, price, preorder info, and release date expected.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Specs
New information on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 specs suggest many improvements including an amazing camera experience that is rumored to feature 3D quality. One of the biggest rumors suggest both the front and rear camera will offer 3D camera video and photography that will be fully enhanced with more megapixels and a refined OIS feature.
More information keeps coming in on eye sensing technology that is expected to also be seen, and will integrate seamlessly with mobile payment options. Either a retina or iris scanner is likely to be seen which will significantly improve the security and work alongside the fingerprint scanner that we’ve seen in previous models. Both can be used in conjunction, or one or both can be turned off for those looking for less security.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Features
All of the top features seen in the Edge 2 as well as many new exclusive Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 features will be seen including an ultra responsive eye scanner, 3D camera technology, rapid wired and wireless charging, and a stronger outer surround. Much of what we’ll see in the new features will significantly enhance security while making life much more convenient for users.
Mobile payment options will take off for Android handsets along with Android specific options such as Android Auto. The automobile interface allows users to their smartphone controls and apps right from the cars display. Mobile data options will also be better with most newer vehicles having 4G connectivity options built right-in. Unfortunately, 5G technology is still a couple of years away which will become the newest mobile connectivity sometime after 2018.
The stylus will definitely make its way back, but we’re hearing about the idea of an auto-eject button for ease of access. This is been all-but confirmed as manually locking and unlocking the stylus has become one of the biggest complaints in the Note series, which will be a thing of the past with an auto-ejectible stylus.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Edge Concept
The concept of the Note Edge has since spawned the Galaxy S Edge concept which shared many similarities including the side viewing angle and side swipe controls. Since debuting in late 2014, it has become increasingly popular for those looking for a more functional smartphone that allows users to expand the control all from the display.
The ability to program more hotkeys along with the unique display options has helped create a more functional and convenient smartphone. This will become even more evident in the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 concept as the swipe controls will be even more responsive, and will integrate seamlessly with all messaging including texts, email, voicemail, and will be fully functional with most 3rd party apps.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Price
The latest word on the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 price is that it will be slightly lower than the launch day price of the original and the Note Edge 2. Most analysts believe this will be done to help Sammy compete with many Chinese start-ups such as Xiaomi, Lenovo, OPPO, and others who are continually creating high quality smartphones for much less.
This will be great news for consumers worldwide as the expected price is believed to start around $900 USD. This translates to about 820 Euro, 5590 Yuan, 111,000 Yuan, and 580 GBP which is pretty comparable to early rumors on the price of the GS8 Edge which will be launched in 2017.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Preorders
With the Note Edge 3 soon to become a worldwide launch, we’re hoping Sammy can keep up with what we believe will be a premium smartphone that will surely be in high demand. Many consumers looking to buy the original had to wait weeks, and many markets months until the availability of supply could meet demand, but those who preordered early were the lucky ones.
The same will be the case with Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 preorders which should begin a few weeks before the actual launch. Early information suggests that many of the top carriers worldwide will be offering incentives to help entice consumers into preordering the new handset, which is always good news us. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but we could be seeing free wireless chargers, limited edition handsets, and micro SD cards with the upcoming release.
All of the top carries around the world will be taking requests for prerelease info and preorders. For those of us in the US, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and AT&T should start taking preorders around the 1st week in October. We’ll be updating you with the official preorder dates for all US carriers and others in England, China, Europe, India, and other markets worldwide.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 Release Date
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 3 release date is likely to start sometime in October of 2016. Those in most markets in Asia such as Japan, China, Thailand, and South Korea will likely see the launch first which should be by the mid-October 2016. Those in Europe and the US will have to wait until late-October to early November which is pretty consistent with the latest rumors.
This is pretty consistent with the launch of both the 1st and 2nd gen models, and Samsung has been pretty consistent with launching one flagship in the same series per year. This would mean the newest Note Edge will debut during the 4th quarter of 2016.
