Samsung Might Have Bitten Off More Than It Can Chew With The S6 Edge’s Dual-Curve Display

Samsung might have pulled off something truly remarkable with its latest Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone, bringing a display technology to the market that its rivals will struggle to get out for at least two years.

However, the company mobile division chief warned on Thursday that manufacturing challenges could restrict the supplies of its dual curved screen used on the S6 Edge. According to a WSJ report, J.K. Shin, Samsung’s mobile chief, said that the response received for the Galaxy S6 Edge is strong, however the screens are difficult to make.
The company’s latest duo-flagship smartphones will go on sale today (April 10) the world over, and analysts have predicted that the more expensive Galaxy S6 Edge could outsell its flatter counterpart. If true, the supply constraints could act as a potential hiccup on the company’s road to revive sales and profits.
Samsung did not disclose shipment forecasts for its two new phones, but did mention that it expects sales of the S6 and S6 Edge to exceed that of its predecessor. While the company might have addressed many of the issues with its devices that caused its recent decline, it does seem to have bitten off a little more than it can chew.
