Samsung reportedly ramping up production of the Galaxy S6 edge

Given that the Galaxy Note Edge was released in limited quantities it was assumed that Samsung would also be conservative with the Galaxy S6 edge. Apparently that’s not the case. A report out of Korea suggests that the company’s global retail and carrier partners are demanding more inventory of the Galaxy S6 edge than Samsung had initially planned for. Looks like the company’s partners believe this particular handset could end up doing very well. Samsung is now expected to triple the original production volume of the Galaxy S6 edge.

Alps Electronics of Japan is currently the sole supplier of touchscreen panels for Samsung’s “Edge” devices. The yield is reportedly not high enough to cover increased production volume. So it’s claimed that Samsung is now going to work with other suppliers as well. The report doesn’t mention which companies will be picked to supply the additional panels, but cites a source who claims that S-MAC might also start providing touchscreen panels to Samsung in the very near future.

Actually your statement is false. There is no CPU difference between the two variants. The difference in 50MaH of battery is mostly because the added edge feature which would in a sense drain the battery faster, but saying that such a small increase won’t be a drastic effect in the long run.

I knew the moment they said the preorders were 15 million on the S6 and 5 million on the S6 Edge that this was the wrong way round. Who is going for a device that looks like the S5? S6 Edge is what’s pushing the sales. They sold out in minutes on the Samsung UK website and the S6 was in stock all the time and even now. Only recently the S6 Edge is coming back on sale from Samsung but with slightly later delivery dates now. Im going for the edge and everyone i have spoken to is as… Read more »

There is a price difference of £100 between the regular and Edge version, and for most that additional expense will not justify buying the Edge, or they may just decide to take the extra money and put it towards buying s6 with more storage. As it is the Edge will be very popular because it’s an exciting new feature, if it continues to stay popular is another thing, allot of times these exciting new innovations end up nothing more than gimmicks, like 3D TV’s, or motion control in gaming, they died down. If the Edge continues to be interesting still… Read more »
