The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 made its debut as expected, but it also came with a twin brother in tow: the new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

The company kicked off its Unpacked 2014 Episode 2 event on Sept. 3 as expected, making exciting announcements for phablet fans. A new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge made its debut alongside the highly-anticipated Note 4, boasting virtually identical specifications but sporting a curved touchscreen with an independent edge.

"Offering a new dimension to Samsung's unique Note culture, the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge strengthen Samsung's category leadership with the most progressive devices on the market," the company touted in its press release.

"Samsung's relentless pursuit of the best in innovation through the optimization of mobile technology and the user experience has led to the debut of the innovative and unique Galaxy Note Edge," Samsung further adds. "Taking the Galaxy Note experience to the next level, the Note Edge provides users with a new way to access information, engage their mobile device, and express their personality and tastes. The Galaxy Note Edge's unique curved Edge screen provides quick access to frequently used apps, alerts and device functionality - even when the cover is closed - all with the swipe of a thumb. Users can also receive notifications directly on the Edge Screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing."

In terms of specifications, the Galaxy Note Edge is virtually identical to the Note 4, boasting largely the same powerful internals and features. The device packs a 2.7GHz quad-core processor, a 5.7-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory of up to 64GB, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 3.7-megapixel front shooter, and a 3,000 mAh battery to keep things up and running. S Pen-optimized features include Air Command with Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip, Smart Select, S Note, Snap Note, and Direct Pen Input, and the device also comes with Multi Window, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Voice Recorder, Download Booster, and more.

The new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will be available in Charcoal Black and Frost White color options, hitting select markets later this year. In the U.S., the device is expected to launch soon on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile. No pricing details are available at this point, but Samsung should provide more details closer to launch.
