Rumor: Samsung looking for 3D glass suppliers as main contractor struggles with low yield
The molding process for the Galaxy S6 edge's curved screen is not a simple one – it requires specialized machinery, which twists the glass symmetrically, after heating it up to 800 degrees Celsius (1,472 Fahrenheit). Apparently, there are still a lot of kinks to iron out, as losing 50% of the production materials is a pretty terrible yield – probably one of the main reasons for the "edge" variants of Sammy's handsets to be less available and more expensive than the "plain" models.
The Galaxy S6 edge will be available for pre-order somewhere around April 1st and Sammy will be looking to build 4 million units by the end of that same month. If you don't manage to get your hands on one, the Galaxy S6 will be more widely available, as Samsung will be making around 9 million of them for the same time period.
So, will you be waiting?
