The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge phablet with a curved display is ready to hit the U.S. on Nov. 14, launching on all major carriers.

Unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 4 back in early September, the intriguing Galaxy Note Edge curved-display phablet is now officially ready to go on sale in the U.S. The device will be available starting on Nov. 14 from AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. Pricing and availability will vary depending on the carrier of your choice. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile have already announced their plans for the Galaxy Note Edge, while Verizon and US Cellular are expected to offer exact pricing and availability details for the device anytime now.

Unique smartphone experiences

"Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung) today announced that the Galaxy Note Edge will be available in the U.S. beginning Nov. 14," reads a press release on Monday, Nov. 3. "The Galaxy Note Edge is the first smartphone of its kind with a functional, curved display for interruption-free notifications."

"The 5.6-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen has a high resolution with more pixels, making the display sharper, brighter and more immersive than ever. The Galaxy Note Edge delivers unique smartphone experiences with a scrollable screen with room to do and see more. The Edge screen gives access to email, Internet apps, notifications, news and more without interrupting the content on the main screen. Night clock mode dimly displays the time, alarm and weather is easily viewable when the Galaxy Edge is placed bedside. Consumers can customize the scrollable Edge menu panel with their favorite apps for quick access; the apps are always available, from any screen," Samsung further explains in its announcement.
