Galaxy BLADE edge: Chef’s Edition
Samsung is proud to announce the world’s first smart knife with smartphone capabilities, the Galaxy BLADE edge. Galaxy BLADE edge is the ultimate cooking companion, made with the modern chef in mind. Building on the expertise it has already displayed with its Chef Collection series, Samsung is taking its commitment to culinary expertise and cutting-edge technology even further – literally.
Running on the latest OS, the Galaxy BLADE edge comes with all the incredible features of the Galaxy S6, but its edge is so sharp and strong that the device can also serve as a chef’s knife. In fact, the Galaxy BLADE edge could very well render all the knives in your kitchen obsolete.
Ergonomic Ceramic, Diamond Design
The Galaxy BLADE edge was designed with diamonds in mind. It not only features a beautiful diamond-cut finish on its tough ceramic body, but is also equipped with a razor-sharp diamond edge, tough enough to cut through a lobster tail and sharp enough to slice though tender heirloom tomatoes.
The body is made of a patented ceramic, making it tougher than stainless steel yet lighter than plastic. Samsung succeeded in obtaining the optimal curve, resulting in a beautiful ergonomic ceramic.
With this unique ceramic, Samsung has also revolutionized the cooking knife’s surface tension – making sure that your fresh organic shiitake mushrooms or wild Perigord black truffles don’t stick to the edge when you’re cutting them.
The Freshest Features
With the Galaxy BLADE edge, Samsung has renewed its focus on functionality. Galaxy devices are no longer just powerful communication devices – they’re also incredibly utilitarian. In addition to the great features Galaxy S6 already offers, Galaxy BLADE edge offers features so fresh you’ll never be able to cook with the rest.
Chop, cut, slice and dice up to 50% faster
Galaxy BLADE edge features a set of sensors and algorithms that analyze your grip, dexterity and strength, setting the weight in optimal proportion to create the perfect rhythm and inertia. This smart feature, in league with the super sharp edge, makes chopping and cutting up to 50% faster than with conventional knives. It also has a special feature for slicing fruit and dicing vegetables.
Safety first with KNOX
With Samsung’s powerful defense-grade KNOX Security, you’ll never cut yourself again. Just scan your fingerprint on the home button and the BLADE’s finger-detection mechanism will be activated. The BLADE will retract before it cuts skin.
A human blood sensor is also available, preventing the device from being used in violent situations. Should the blade make contact with human blood, the device will automatically place an emergency call to the appropriate authorities.
If a call is made by accident, all you have to do is scan your fingerprint, swipe the security pattern, punch in the 15-digit password and sing along to the random-selected song from your most recent Milk Music station and the call will be cancelled.
KNOX’s powerful anti-virus protection will also alert you to any germs found in your ingredients or on the surface of your cooking top.
Water- and fire-proof
Apart from the extremely sturdy diamond and ceramic parts, the display is also covered with a protective, waterproof coating, specially formulated for Galaxy BLADE edge so chefs can accept calls and respond to messages anytime, without worrying if they spill a little bouillabaisse. This easy-to-clean device can be washed and sanitized like any other kitchen utensil and the body is also completely fire resistant, so no worries should any flambé-related mishaps occur.
Galaxy BLADE edge comes with a stylus that doubles as a wireless meat thermometer and baking tool, to let you know when your pan-seared foie gras is the right temperature, and when your baked camembert is ready to be taken out of the oven. Use it to ensure the correct water temperature when cooking braised beef short ribs sous vide.
Innovations under the hood
Samsung brought out all its tricks hidden in its cupboards to make this culinary dream a reality. A patented transparent ceramic body has been introduced to maximize visual pleasure in preparing food.
To match the sophisticated design, all components were redesigned to fit the curve including its main memory. The main memory is not UFS but U4CF (Ultra 4D Curved Flash). This innovation in NAND flash memory technology betters the previous 3D vertical stacking techniques (first brought to market by Samsung in 2013) by introducing 10nm-wide wormholes that send data to a far-away cloud. These wormholes also result in a distorted physique, giving the NAND flash memory solution a curved shape.
Sweet software for users of all kinds
User experience is determined by a combination of all things including the hardware, design, services, software, etc. This is why Samsung focused on developing the essentials to help users realize their culinary dreams.
Samsung Kitchen and Chef Collection
The Samsung Galaxy BLADE edge is fully integrated with the Samsung Kitchen app, which automatically connects the device with Samsung Chef Collection appliances nearby.
This will allow you to preheat the oven or set a timer simply by swiping up on the home screen. The app will also send you a push notification when the lobster sauce for your quenelles of pike is done simmering.
The Galaxy Blade edge comes equipped with a 16MP rear camera, auto real-time HDR and a larger aperture size of F1.9. But foodies will also love the handy Gourmet Mode camera function.
Just tap the icon on the camera preview screen and Gourmet Mode will make your plated dish look like a work of art. Your supermarket sushi will look like it was prepared by the finest master sushi chef.
Custom Accessories (Coming Soon)
To ensure the chef has proper leverage the device comes with a custom made detachable knife handle, made from high-quality olivewood. Or, for a more premium look, choose the premium mammoth tusk ivory inlay edition, made from real mammoth tusk**, found beneath the surface of the North Sea. Handles made from the same ergonomic ceramic as the body or stainless steel – for you old-schoolers – are also available. Choose a knife with a handle that is as exquisite as the dishes you serve.
Protective sleeves, covers and charging blocks
The Galaxy BLADE edge comes with useful protective covers so you can protect the sharp edge (or your belongings from the diamond edge) when not in use. The Galaxy BLADE edge covers are offered in a variety of styles to fit your taste.
Also coming in the near future are wireless wooden charging blocks. You may also store your now-useless dumb knives here.
The Galaxy BLADE edge was designed to be the champion of all kitchen devices. With everything Galaxy BLADE edge offers, the modern chef will never need another smartphone or another set of knives again.
* Warning: Keep out of reach of children
** No mammoths were killed for the handle – upon discovery under the North Sea, the tusks were carefully removed from the fossilized bodies, which were given a respectful burial back to their age-old graves.
*** Samsung was also exploring Galaxy Blade edges, a double-edged sword for sports and Galaxy Blade Axe, for your timbering needs, but have decided not to further pursue these possibilities due to safety reasons.
