encasing the gadgets. Samsung\u0027s popular Galaxy S devices use plastic instead of metal like phones from Apple, HTC, and other rivals. And it has tended to use the same basic design for its many devices, which market watchers have criticized. CNET\u0027s Jessica Dolcourt in her \u003Ca href=\u0022http:\/\/www.cnet.com\/products\/samsung-galaxy-s5\/\u0022\u003Ereview of the Galaxy S5 \u003C\/a\u003Eearlier this year described it a \u0022superior superphone that hits every mark but the sharpest design.\u0022\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E \tMany analysts have called for Samsung to refresh its mobile device designs, and the company has shown signs that it\u0027s listening. It recently replaced its mobile design chief, and in August unveiled a smartphone, called the Galaxy Alpha, that has metal accents. The Galaxy Note 4 and the Note Edge also feature metal frames. It also has put more emphasis on devices designed by a group in San Francisco. The team has created the Gear Fit, as well as the Level audio line, the Gear S smartwatch, and the Gear Circle wireless headphones that resemble necklaces.\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E \tThe Galaxy Note Edge is one of the first major smartphone design risks Samsung has taken that it\u0027s releasing globally. Typically, it introduces new features -- such as a curved display in the \u003Ca href=\u0022http:\/\/www.cnet.com\/products\/samsung-galaxy-round\/\u0022\u003EGear Round \u003C\/a\u003Eor metal frames in the\u003Ca href=\u0022http:\/\/www.cnet.com\/products\/samsung-galaxy-alpha\/\u0022\u003E Galaxy Alpha\u003C\/a\u003E -- in only a limited number of test markets, such as its home country of South Korea. Many of its more innovative devices have never reached the US. But the Note Edge is slated to hit the US in the waning months of 2014 at Verizon, AT\u0026amp;T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E\u003Cfigure class=\u0022image pull-none image-full-width\u0022 section=\u0022shortcodeImage\u0022\u003E\u003Cspan class=\u0022imageContainer\u0022\u003E\u003Cimg src=\u0022\u0022 class=\u0022lazy \u0022 alt=\u0022samsung-galaxy-note-edge-product-photos31.jpg\u0022 height=\u0022578\u0022 width=\u0022770\u0022 data-original=\u0022 http:\/\/cnet4.cbsistatic.com\/hub\/i\/r\/2014\/09\/02\/6b02463f-edf1-41db-ac5d-f9995fa9a68a\/resize\/770x578\/c44a38573aec690269441ee6a434666f\/samsung-galaxy-note-edge-product-photos31.jpg\u0022\u003E\u003Cnoscript\u003E\u003Cimg src=\u0022http:\/\/cnet4.cbsistatic.com\/hub\/i\/r\/2014\/09\/02\/6b02463f-edf1-41db-ac5d-f9995fa9a68a\/resize\/770x578\/c44a38573aec690269441ee6a434666f\/samsung-galaxy-note-edge-product-photos31.jpg\u0022 class=\u0022\u0022 alt=\u0022samsung-galaxy-note-edge-product-photos31.jpg\u0022 itemprop=\u0022image\u0022 height=\u0022578\u0022 width=\u0022770\u0022\u003E\u003C\/noscript\u003E\u003C\/span\u003E\u003Cfigcaption\u003E\u003Cspan class=\u0022caption\u0022\u003ESamsung\u0027s Note phablet line has a new variant, the curved-screen Galaxy Note Edge.\u003C\/span\u003E\u003Cspan class=\u0022credit\u0022\u003E\n Sarah Tew\/CNET\n \u003C\/span\u003E\u003C\/figcaption\u003E\u003C\/figure\u003E\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E \tNow Samsung needs to get developers to create notifications and other uses for the side screen in the Note Edge.

The Galaxy Note line of devices already commands a higher price than most other smartphones on the market, but the Galaxy Note Edge is sure to cost even more. Samsung\u0027s not revealing pricing just yet, but Denison did say the device would be a premium product relative to the Note 4. Last year\u0027s Galaxy Note 3 retailed for $300 with a two-year contract. Both the iPhone 5S and the Galaxy S5 start at $200 (though many deals can be found, bringing down the cost even more).\u003C\/p\u003E\u003Cp\u003E \tWhether the wraparound notification screen turns out to be really useful for consumers or just a gimmick remains to be seen.
