Samsung Galaxy Note Edge stops by the FCC for testing


The newly announced Samsung Galaxy Note Edge has recently been spotted at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website with the FCC ID A3LSMN915A, which of course reveals the model number SM-N915A.

All communications devices that will be marketed in the U.S. will pass through the FCC for approval and further testing. This is going to be the final stage and once all tests are passed and the bureau approves the device, the manufacturer as well as retailers could start selling it.

There were reports that suggested that the gimmicky Galaxy Note Edge will be a limited edition concept only. Limited stocks will be marketed in Korea first before the rest of the world would have a chance to even hold it.

In the U.S. only AT&T and US Cellular confirmed to sell the phone and while Samsung hasn’t disclosed the price yet, it is expected the price will be within the same range as that of the Note 4.

Currently, pre-orders are being accepted in the UK, Japan and Germany. The release date hasn’t been provided yet but since the device is already under the scrutiny of the FCC, it will take just a week or two before it’s approved to be sold. So, there’s a big chance shipping will begin later this month.
