Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge , both seems to have same specs, but the main difference we can see in both is the later has an edge screen ( additional attractive feature), Note 4 is already launched in Korea and USA, and Samsung trying to launch these smartphones in 140 countries including India before the end of this month, so we can choose this smartphones too as of its high-end specs, Note 4 price in US is of $904, so we are expecting the price in India is around 54-55K, but still the price and release date of Galaxy Note Edge is not yet confirmed, it is reported that the price of this smartphone varies from region to region and it also depends on the chipset used ( as it works on both Exynos and SnapDragon), we have already posted the benchmark of Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge, so have a look it the earlier post to check its capabilities and limitations
