Galaxy Note Edge paired with Sprint Family Share Pack offers consumers the best value with double the high-speed data at the same or lower price compared to AT&T and Verizon
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), November 03, 2014 - Pushing the boundaries far beyond that of the traditional smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Note® Edge will be available from Sprint on Friday, Nov. 14. Note Edge boasts an innovative curved Edge design for interruption-free notifications.
Galaxy Note Edge will be available in Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales at 1-800-SPRINT1. With Sprint Easy PaySM, well-qualified buyers can purchase Galaxy Note Edge with $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $35 (SRP: $840; excluding taxes; service plan required).
“Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a beautiful device and its unique design challenges the notion of what most of us think a smartphone should look like,” said Doug Kaufman, director-Device Strategy, Sprint. “Only Sprint brings our customers the best value in wireless with the Sprint Family Share Pack offering up to 10 lines of service for just $100 or the Sprint $60 Unlimited plan. We make it easy to enjoy all this device has to offer, especially the wrap-around Edge screen.”
Best Value in Wireless
The Sprint Family Share Pack is the best value for families with a new shared-data plan that offers double the high-speed data at a lower price than AT&T and Verizon Wireless on nationally available plans. Sprint is offering a limited-time promotion for the Sprint Family Share Pack – for a family with up to 10 lines, switch to Sprint and get 20GB of shared data and unlimited talk and text while on the Sprint network for only $100 a month through 2015 after the waived access charges.1
Galaxy Note Edge also benefits from the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan2, which beats all national carriers, providing significant savings over competitor plans. The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan saves customers $20 a month compared to T-Mobile’s $80 unlimited plan3. AT&T and Verizon Wireless don’t even offer unlimited data plans. With the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, consumers can talk, text and use data, knowing that their market-leading plan is one low price of $60 without surprising overage charges. (All prices exclude taxes and surcharges.)
Edge for Notifications and More
Featuring a 5.6-inch Quad HD (2,560x1,440+160) Super AMOLED® display that wraps around the right side of the device, Galaxy Note Edge delivers unique smartphone experiences with room to do and see more. The Edge display provides quick access to email, Internet, apps, notifications, news and more without interrupting the content on the main screen.
Users can receive notifications on the Edge screen while watching videos without disturbing their viewing on the high-resolution display. It also offers always accessible dedicated music controls on the Edge display without interfering with the main display. Night clock mode dimly displays the time, alarm and weather and is easily viewable when Galaxy Note Edge is placed bedside.
The Sprint 4G LTE network serves 540 cities, making it easy for customers to take advantage of all the great features of Galaxy Note Edge.
