We’re just a couple of hours away from Samsung’s event at IFA, but that hasn’t stopped the leaks. If you want to be surprised while watching the event consider this your spoiler alert. An image of two new handsets has popped up. It shows the expected Note 4, but also a device with a curved display called the Galaxy Note Edge. We’ve heard about a device with this name in the past, but this is our first look at it.

From the image we can see that the Edge is the same size as the Galaxy Note 4. The display also seems to be similarly sized (maybe slightly smaller), but the right side curves back around the edge. This space appears to be used for notifications. It’s hard to tell if the display wraps around both edges or just the right side. We’ll have to wait and see what Samsung can do with this extra screen real estate. Devices like this have been full of gimmicks in the past. Will the Note Edge change that?
