Released alongside the standard black edition, the white Galaxy Edge is now available free of charge (with no upfront costs) from £58 a month line rental, this is far more expensive than the black Samsung Edge which can now be picked up from as little as £43.50 a month with no upfront cost.
Vodafone deals for the Samsung Galaxy Edge actually start with tariffs priced at £14.50 a month but obviously with high upfront costs of around £400.

With the S pen stylus, you can easily select anything you want from websites, eBooks and apps. Then you can put together what you select and share and save it at once.
