Report: HTC and Samsung cut component orders for their current flagship models

Rumor: HTC and Samsung cut orders for new flagship units
Samsung says that sales of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edgeare meeting internal targets and will surpass sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The company made this statement after some data indicated that the Galaxy S5 had reached 10 million in sales a little faster than the current Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge did. And today, new information surfaced that would seem to support those who see sluggish sales of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.

A report out of Taiwan says that Samsung is cutting component orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge by 16%. Taking this into consideration, Samsung now expects to produce 50 million units of the two smartphones this year. Despite today's news, Samsung still expects to end up with a new company record for handset sales in 2015. In fact, there is conflicting talk that Samsung will go ahead and triple production of the Galaxy S6 edge to 46 million units in 2015.

Meanwhile, reports that HTC was having a tough time moving the HTC One M9 are continuing to spread. The latest word is that the manufacturer has cut component orders for the HTC One M9 by 30%. HTC now plans on building 3.2 million units of its flagship phone in 2015. HTC's shares, trading in Taiwan, hit a 12-year low earlier today.
