Samsung is reportedly boosting production for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge due to overwhelming demand for the soon-to-be-released smartphones. ETNews reports that the South Korean company recently increased its order by 13 million units ahead of it official launch in April.
The report also notes that the majority of Samsung’s new phones will be the standard Galaxy S6, which takes up nine million units out of the new order. Clearly, the flagship phone is expected to be the company’s big seller, though it sounds like the Galaxy S6 Edge could be in high-demand as well. Still, that curved display and a higher price may be a turnoff for some.
Samsung may have already racked up 20 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. The new glass and metal design appears to be an early hit with Android fans, even if it means the phone won’t offer a removable battery, expandable storage or a water-resistant design. It looks like the company is really on to something with its latest device, though we won’t know for sure until the first sales figures arrive.
If the Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant turn out to be a huge success it could help Samsung re-establish itself as the smartphone king. If not, the company may end up be sitting on a huge pile of unsold handsets.
