While many people are just breaking in their Galaxy Note Edge smartphones, many are looking forward to the inevitable release of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2. While the huge sales and consumer demand for the limited market release, the next installment is already making quite an impression.
With the Edge concept, we have been introduced to mobile innovation at its finest. The Edge swipe controls gives users yet another reason to look at Samsung smartphones. The following information on the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2 rumors, specs, features, concept, price, presales, and release date info will keep you wanting more.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2 Rumors
[AdSense-A]The most persistent Samsung Galaxy Note Edge 2 rumors center on the many changes expected. The biggest news seems that the next release will not be limited to certain markets. As the first Edge was limited in availability and only seen in some markets worldwide, there are many rumors suggesting the next release will not.
With the first Note Edge, Samsung was unsure how receptive consumers would be. This precipitated the limited market release, but with the huge sales and consumer interest in the Edge concept, it seems like all markets will feature the Note Edge 2. This is great news for many consumers as the limited availability lead to huge delays or some consumers looking at other phones.
There are also many Samsung rumors that a bendable display will make its way to at least one 2015 Samsung smartphone. While this has yet to be confirmed, the strong premise of the rumors suggests this will be more fact than rumor.
The most likely candidate to receive a new bendable concept would be the Galaxy Note Edge 2 due to its unique nature already. The other two 2015 flagship releases including the Note 5 and Galaxy S6 are likely to stick to a standard design which has become a trademark of both Samsung models.
Other Galaxy Note Edge 2 rumors that we have just started hearing about is 5G connectivity. While it is known that Samsung is looking to integrate the new wireless 5G connectivity, it is not likely to be finished by the time the Edge 2 launches. We’re quite certain we’ll have to wait at least a couple of more years before we see 5G smartphone capabilities.

We’re expecting to see improvements to more megapixels, more RAM, more battery power, more power, and a slightly larger 4K screen. The Note Edge 2 may be the first Samsung smartphone to get the octa-core technology. The Snapdragon Qualcomm 810 processor will bring more than just power, but a true 4K screen display.
