Samsung is reportedly prepping another handset with curved Edge display for a pre-September release


At this point, it's somewhat safe to say that we're about to witness a lot more of the Samsung' curved displays in its future devices. While the Galaxy Note Edge started the trend back in September 2014, the Galaxy S6 edge really proved that Samsung has hit a sweet spot with its curved displays.

 Reportedly, the Galaxy S6 edge has been basking in an unexpected amount of consumer demand, forcing the South Korean giant to amp up the curved display yield for the S6 edge, which will allow it to produce up to 10 million Galaxy S6 edge handsets a month by the end of the year (a 1000% increase of the originally-planned 1 million handsets a month). According to South Korea's ETNews, the current yield is about 3 million units per month. 

What enables Samsung Display, the branch responsible for the curved Edge displays, to increase its production capacity by such a large margin is reportedly some new manufacturing technologies that it has recently put to good use. We're already expecting a new rendition of the Galaxy Note Edge alongside the Note 5 this autumn, but according to ETNews, the increased yield will enable Samsung to woo us with yet another device with a curved display before the Note 5 & the next Note Edge arrive this September. 

While it's certain that Samsung would want to reap the benefits of its display tech to the fullest, there's no hard-based evidence suggesting that we are about to see another device with a display of the type this summer. Still, when it comes to Samsung, one can never be sure.

Thanks for the tip!

I love how you all keep saying that samsung releases too many phones. Are you suggesting they should do an apple and just release two overpriced phones a year so that everybody has identical phones. You wouldn't all dress the same or have the same car, tattoo etc etc. So why do so many people want the same phone. ..... mentalists I tell you

no not just 2, but may be 1 phone for/under 200, 1 for around 500, and two flagships (S series and Note), maybe one for 150. As motorola did with moto g, moto e, moto x, nexus, droid turbo. And give better software support (fast updates).

I honestly didn't want to say this but when Apple pushes out an incomplete "BETA" product, it's revolutionary but Samsung can't?

Gimmick? No one is pushing you to buy this phone.. dont deny that you are just jealous that your beloved company will never achieve and create an edge phone

Hey Sonyfindone...tell me one useful feature that the Edge is used for. Please. I'm all ears. Other than gimmick, and $100 more, please tell me.

yeah, SOS! NOTE 5. The Samsung circle of evolution. Keep recycling the same thing, over and over and over in mass variants

Maybe with the Galaxy S types but Each Note has been superior to its predecessor. You can't ignore the face that the Galaxy Notes stand at the top or near the top of the Android world

Yes, if only they could change it up, like these guys! http://www.konstantinfo.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/evolution-iphone6.jpg Look at how different they all are!!!!!!!!!!

another gimmick coming your way, with a gimmick curve side.

Maybe it's not as essential and groudbreaking as the abiity to send heartbeats to each other. Apple sure didn't think it was a gimmick when they filed for a patent for edge screened phones. The great thing is, if you don't like it, or can't afford it, then you don't have to buy it.

Next Samsung Smartphone will be a Windows Phone. Cause Microsoft need Samsung technology to implement Cellphone to be used as computer connected to an external keyboard and monitor.

I am a proud S6 Edge owner and I love this gorgeous phone. Releasing new phones every few months has not been a good strategy from Samsung. They should rather improve the current devices before they push new devices to the market, which has been confusing the consumers in they past.

Customers have never been confused about ANY Samsung phone. Maybe you are thus speak for yourself. Cerain models are only released in certain countries. So its simple. If a device is released in India, but not the USA and you live in the USA, why are you concerned about a phone you will enevr ever see? How is that phoen part of the choice? If you only like the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note, how would the Galaxy A or K or J or whatever they call it goign to be confusing? When you shop from cars are you confused by so many brands? How about hamburgers or clothing. With so many choices certainly people are confused...right? Every time one of you say that it makes you sound like a total and uttered loser.

Posts: 2454; Member since: Apr 23, 2015

Its not for extra notification bar lol, its the screen that cost in production but yea I agree with you, it should be 50$ or less.

TO ALL OF YOU ABOVE HATERS....demand proves that you are a minority in your thinking. Ultimately demand decides the fate of new technology, and what you call gimmick others call cool. PA admitted that the technology side of the edge albeit at this point limited does function. You all have a right to your opinion, and the right not to like it, but realistically it is the top phone tech wise, and appearance wise regardless!

The morons don't seem to understand a simple fact. The best phone isn't always the one you like, it also doesn't have to be the top seller. It still can be the the best. Gimmick or not, the S6 Edge looks better than any phone that ahs ever preceded it, and I honestly dont think there will ever be a design that will ever top it even if they "edged" all 4 sides of the device.
