Samsung Galaxy Note Edge USB Drivers – Download Now

Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge is truly an exotic device in it’s own respect but before that it is an Android device which requires USB drivers to be installed on your PC. Galaxy Note Edge is featuring a Quad-HD screen that bends on the right side. This bend has been used to gain productivity and display notification information or just act as a helpful side menu. Currently, the Note Edge runs KitKat and Android 5.0 Lollipop is to arrive soon. In order to make sure a reliable connection between your phone and your computer, correct USB drivers are compulsory.  Samsung has its own proprietary USB connection software and drivers which improve security and avoid misuse of the device. Most of the new users will have some troubles connecting their device to their computers (Windows or Mac). Solving those issues, we are presenting you a quick guide which explains how you can install USB drivers without installing the full Samsung KIES suite.

USB drivers for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are the same as other Samsung Android devices. Sadly, Android has left the mass storage option out of it’s latest builds for security and various other reasons. However, these Android devices do support “Media device (MTP)” which allows you to add or remove files from your internal storage. MTP drivers are always included with the stock Android phone software. ADB drivers and Fastboot drivers will need to be downloaded from the Android SDK. We have an entire section full of Android USB Drivers, but we have that covered as well for you below on how to download and install the drivers.

Like we said, the USB drivers for Galaxy Note Edge are always bundled with Samsung KIES or MTP drivers are part of the Android 4.4 KitKat / Android 5.0 Lollipop software that comes with the phone.
