Samsung having production issues with the Galaxy S5

Samsung logoThere have been some rumors about production issues with Samsung's Galaxy S5. First, one of their factories caught fire, damaging some of their stock and production equipment.

Now, there are reports indicating that Samsung is having difficulty with properly centering the optics in the S5's 16MP ISOCELL camera sensor.

On top of this, Samsung is facing stability issues with the coating process for the S5's lens module. Although they are making good progress in fixing these errors, the Korean tech-giant has definitely taken a hit as a result.

Because of the setbacks, Samsung will only have 4-5 million S5 units available at launch, as opposed to the 5-7 million devices they originally anticipated.

Anyone who is looking forward to the S5, are you a little anxious as to whether or not they'll be able to get the phone at launch? Or do you have doubts that the phone will hit its target date? Let us know in the comments!
