Samsung unveils GALAXY Note 4, Note Edge, Gear S and Gear VR

Finally, Samsung unveiled the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 and Gear S smartwatch at IFA 2014. However, what is interesting is the next few products. They are the Samsung GALAXY Note Edge, a smartphone with a curve or slant edge for independent display, and the Gear VR, a VR headset that incorporates Oculus technology and the Note 4 into one badass Virtual Reality headset.

So, a total of 4 products and we only know 2 of them. I think Samsung has done a good job in keeping the new products from everyone, especially on the news that they collaborated with Oculus.

Here are some notes that I have taken during the Samsung Live Streaming.

Samsung GALAXY Note Edge

As the name implies, it has an edge display. This is something new in the mobile industry. I admire Samsung’s courage to explore new territory , just like when they launched the first GALAXY Note 1 in 2011.

The edge or slant display is independent from the main screen. It can display notification, and even camera functions.

It is customizable.

To use the Gear S for the first time, user will need to connect it to a smart device. And likewise, for software/firmware update, it also need to connect to device. Here are some features of the watch.

The Samsung Gear VR is powered by the Samsung GALAXY Note 4 and with the technology from Oculus. Notice the GALAXY Note 4 is inserted into the Oculus.

And that is it for all the 4 new products from Samsung at IFA 2014.

In my opinion, the Samsung GALAXY Note Edge and the Samsung Gear VR are game changer, and a tough act for other manufacturers to follow. Of course, there might be a chance that the adoption rate of these new devices might be slow. I hope to see these devices soon.
