Samsung opened up pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 4 last week, but still hasn’t said when we’ll be able to get our hands on the Galaxy Note Edge. Now the company is speaking up a bit on the futuristic phablet, and it looks like availability for the Note Edge could be pretty limited in some countries.
In a recent statement, Samsung Electronics President DJ Lee called the Galaxy Note Edge a “limited edition concept” device, suggesting it won’t be as widely available as the flagship Galaxy Note 4. He added that the phone’s “mass production schedule is different for each country” without mentioning any specifics on the company’s launch plans for the device. However, a recent blog post from British phone retailer Clove reveals that the Galaxy Note Edge won’t be shipped directly to the U.K. It should still be available in most of Europe, and Clove says it hopes to stock some non-U.K. models.
Samsung has already confirmed the Galaxy Note Edge will launch on all four major carriers in the U.S., with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile each promising to sell the new smartphone at some point in the future. We’ll keep an eye out for more news, but depending on where you live it might take a while before the Galaxy Note Edge becomes available.
