Samsung opens new plant to meet Galaxy S6 edge demand

Samsung logoApparently there can be too much of a good thing, and in Samsung's case the unanticipated high demand for the Galaxy S6 edge lead to shortages in the smartphone's supply. The limiting factor was quoted to be the dual-edge display, but Samsung was quick to address the issue.

Industry insiders report that a new manufacturing line has already gone operational, which should bring the production volume to 5 million curved displays a month. That's a substantial increase compared to the previous 2 million units monthly output and should help the company reach the latest forecast of 70 million Galaxy S6/S6 edge device sales.

Samsung opens new plant to meet Galaxy S6 edge demand

The new plant's planned launch date was set for the month of June, but with the explosion of market demand Samsung managed to pull it off two months ahead of schedule.

Owing in no small part to the special screen, the Galaxy S6 edge was reported to be the company's most expensive smartphone to produce. The 64GB Verizon version cost Samsung a whopping $290 for materials and assembly alone.
