As you all know by now, Samsung has released two new flagship devices during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month. This Korean tech giant took a different approach this time around, the recently-announced Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge handsets are the first metal unibody smartphones Samsung has ever announced. The metal frame is combined with glass panels on both front and back, and the devices just look and feel premium. The Galaxy S6 is a regularly-shaped device, while Samsung took a bold approach with the Galaxy S6 Edge. This handset sports a curved display on both its left and right side, which makes it unique for sure.
As you might recall, Samsung has already announced a smartphone sporting a curved display last year, the Galaxy Note Edge. Unlike the Note Edge, the Galaxy S6 Edge sports curves on both sides, and it seems like Samsung is getting a lot of pre-orders for this thing. We’ve already covered several reports claiming that Samsung has upped the production of their Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices, and another report from Korea came knocking today. According to ETNews, Samsung intends to triple the production volume of the Galaxy S6 Edge. Japan’s Alps Electronics might not be the only supplier of TSP (Touchscreen Panels) for this Korean tech giant. The company intends to partner up with an additional company / companies in order to up the production volume. S-MAC was mentioned as one of the possible manufacturers, but that’s just a guess at this point.
As you might recall, a recent report said that Samsung might sell 55 million units of their newest flagships by the end of the year. Judging by all these reports that are surfacing, it seems like Samsung has underestimated the demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge handset. This device was well-received when launched earlier this month, and many people were intrigued. It seems like Samsung is getting a lot of orders for this particular device, which was not exactly the case with the Galaxy Note Edge, although the availability of that handset was / is very limited. It will be interesting to see how many Galaxy S6 Edge handset will the company ship by the end of the year.
