Dual-edged Samsung Galaxy S6 to be produced in a 'limited' 10 million batch

Well if 10 million is limited, then the phones like HTC m series and sony Z series don't get produced at all.

Why Samsung always make the Edge series limited? If they can make it permanent why not? I know they can, yes they can.

Its a marketing hype and a good excuse. If it is not success like they hope for. Limited number at start works fine for them. They wont loose face that way. If it is success, its easy for them to call "we had to produce another 10 million because customers wanted".
Shamesung always plays dirty and they use every tricks they can.

If only you knew how dumb you sound. Almost every company has done a limited edition or run of something at some point, but I don't hear you calling everyone else out. Not to mention, these are still rumors. Way to show your bias.

Then Apple, MS, Sony and every other company is dumb too. Do you really think Apple runs out of every new product it sells? Do you really think they cant forecast a months worth of initial sales? Do you really think that MS actually sold enough slates to sell out? lol
Sell outs create more demand for the product and keep its price inflated longer.

When differentiation doesn't have a reasonable purpose it becomes gimmicky...
I bought my old Acro S because of the (at the time) waterproofing that differentiated it from other flagships... and I bought my Z3 Compact partly because that feature (no longer a notable difference) is actually useful...
But I still fail to see the use of the edge display... I think the LG Flex are actually a bit more logical.

when you are watching it perpendicularly, you can actually see the whole content... the ergonomics and handling are good due to the natural curved shape... and the curve also protects the phone if is facing down on a surface....
What is the purpose of the edge display again? notification?, ruler? shortcuts?... common..

some will say LG flex is a gimmick also, it is depend on our point of view, dont be so straight about what others thinking

I guess that's what happens when you post irrelevant comments.

the volume button could easily be on screen.. the power button would most likely go to the top... not a big mystery to solve lol
