Curved S7 Edge display reportedly in mass production, as Samsung takes cue from the S6 edge shortages
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are expected to be out in the wild very soon, showing their beach bodies this Sunday, February 21st, at the MWC expo in Barcelona. Apparently, Samsung has already begun mass production of the respective 5.5" flexible display for the S7 Edge in its Asan plant, say industry insiders, as it wants to avoid last year's supply shortages for the S6 edge display. 

Samsung reportedly underestimated the demand for its first model with a dual-curve panel then, leading to unrealized potential sales, and a fairly tepid financial quarter after the S6 and S6 edge launched. This year, it is determined to do no such thing, it seems, and has fired up the A2 and A3 production lines at the plant, which can churn out no less than 9 million OLED panels a month, should the need arise. 

On a side note, from this publication we are getting yet another confirmation that the Galaxy S7 Edge will sport a 5.5" display, which is a much wiser move compared to last year when the Edge+ shipped with the same screen size as the Note 5.

HTC really should die. Partnering with Apple just to take their design language, pushing out phones that are exactly the same as previous versions(not only in design) or even worse (810 slower app opening speed then 801). And from what i saw from that one m10 leak is that they are at it again , pulling another HTC this year.

I think they are misjudging the market. People loved the S6 edge due to it being as small as the S6! This S7 edge is going to sell as well at the S6 edge plus. It's a different territory and category of people.

Still waiting on them Exynos benchmarks and battery life. I wonder how much extra they will charge with the curve this year.

50 S7 articles and counting. PA, can't you bring up other stories? Am sure there is other tech news. Stop being lazy. You keep rehashing the S7 over and over again. Its boring now!

Don't worry Samsung, it won't happen again, S7 edge will be nowhere near as popular as S6 edge. It's just too big. It seems like S6 edge+'s flop didn't teach you anything - people don't want phablets!

The. The lg G5 will have no sales at all then, if the s7 edge is smaller than my s6 edge plus, it wil. Be a very good size in the hand and in use and will be way smaller the the iPhone plus

It's funny they're doing it like this. I've really enjoyed my S6 edge but if the next edge is that big I'll just be getting the regular S7. I have a tablet for when I want a huge screen, my phone is smaller for convenience..
