Samsung announces a second delay for the Australian launch of the Galaxy Note Edge

Note Edge
The long awaited Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, was initially supposed to launch in Australia on the 5th of November here in Australia. In the lead up to the Note 4 launch, Samsung revised the launch date for both the Note 4 and the Note Edge, and while the Note 4 has finally launched, today Samsung has issued a statement advising a second delay for the Note Edge

The statement in full reads :

Samsung Electronics Australia wishes to advise of a revision to the on sale date for the Galaxy Note Edge. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will commence shipping from 25th November. We apologise for any inconvenience

The Note Edge will be coming to the three major Australian carriers: Telstra, Vodafone and Optus. While Optus and Telstra have been quiet on pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge so far, Vodafone has already opened up pre-sales for the handset starting at just $68 per month($38 Handset/$30 Plan. If you want to purchase the Note Edge outright, you are looking to pay a retail price of $1249.

Hopefully this will be the last delay for the handset which will apparently hit the US market mid-this month. We can’t wait to go hands-on with the phone and take that new curved edge display for a spin.

Have you been waiting for the Galaxy Note Edge?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I am not only considering it but am getting really impatient and irritated with these delays.

I have been waiting for something new for a long time and finally Samsung have given it to me……well, nearly given it to me. If they delay it again I may just have to go out in protest.

Not me, happy with my Note 4 atm. Until they can perfection the use of curve screen, I’m not really interested in it.
