Samsung's Galaxy Note Edge is ready to make its debut in the US market with some of the largest carriers in the country confirming the device. As you would expect from an exclusive device that carries some innovative features, the Note Edge is properly expensive. Considering it is not as rounded as the Galaxy Note 4, the Edge is really for those who must have new tech or want to stand out from the smartphone crowd.The four major carriers in the US, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile will be carrying the Galaxy Note Edge. Whoever you go with the Note Edge will be expansive, with the subsidized contract price sitting at $399. All carriers have their own separate purchase options so it is worth looking around, while unlocked some companies are cheaper than others. AT&T Ma Bell said that it will start selling the Note Edge at select retail locations and online from November 7th. The company said with the NEXT program you can get the handset for $39.42 for 18 months or $47.30 for 12 months. On contract the Edge will be $400, while if you want it outright it will cost $945.95, much more than the company's Galaxy Note 4 ($299.99 on-contract and $826 off). T-Mobile The Uncarrier sent us some details about its Galaxy Note Edge deals.
The wait is almost over for T-Mobile customers. T-Mobile today announced the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will be available on its Data Strong network starting November 14th for $0 down (and $36.25/month for 24 months) online and in participating stores nationwide. You can also pre-register online to be notified when the Galaxy Note Edge becomes available to order.The company did not offer a release date but is prompting consumers to sign up for updates. That $36.25 two year payment option works out to $840 off contract. Sprint Sprint confirmed that it too will be joining the Edge party and will begin carrying the handset from November 14th. The Now Network is undercutting T-Mobile with a $35 per month contract over 24 months or you can pay $840 with Sprint?s Easy Pay option. The struggling network is certainly trying to entice users here with a cheaper per month payment and a more affordable overall non-contract cost. The company has not yet revealed any on contract plans. Verizon The biggest carrier in the US, Verizon, has only gone as far as confirming that it will carry the Galaxy Note Edge, but has not said when the device will land and which payment options will be used. As is the case with Big Red normally, the price will probably match with AT&T more or less. US Cellular, the fifth largest carrier in the country will also have the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, but like Verizon has not detailed its exact plans.
