Yup, I am talking Ultra HD baby, as in 4K. Well Samsung seems to agree as they are working on a 5.9-inch Super AMOLED display that will sport a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and a ppi of 746.

AT&T announced earlier this morning that the cousin to the Note 4, the Note Edge, will be available in select retail stores starting Friday, Nov. 7. While Samsung is only going to sell a select few Edges, those on AT&T will be happy to know that they’re some of those lucky enough to purchase the concept device.

Like the Note 4, the Edge boasts a QHD SAMOLED that wraps around the edge of the right side of the screen. That edge allows users to view notifications and clears up screen real estate by allowing uses to move their favorite apps to the edge.

If you cast your mind back to September, you may remember that the folks over at SamMobile managed to get their mitts on an exclusive preview of Lollipop running on a Galaxy S5, but as Samsung was still working on a strategy to make TouchWiz compatible with Google’s Material Design guidelines, the firmware was rather buggy and a number of inconsistencies could be spotted throughout the user interface.

Now, however, the online publication is in possession of a new internal Android Lollipop preview. This time it’s the latest build of Android 5.0 (LRX02E) and at first glance it looks to be miles better than the version previously demoed. It’s a lot smoother for starters, and there’s a truckload of additional features. Us naming the changes is all well and good, but wouldn’t you rather see them in action?
