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!

Either add something constructive to the conversation or delete yourself from PA completely.

Why can't I express my opinion? Where is democracy?

Expressing your "opinion" is one thing. Logging on simply to troll Samsung and Android and incite flame wars is another thing altogether. It's simply not needed here. If you have a dissenting view about an OS and/or product, the least you can do is voice your opinion intelligently and without inciting flame wars.

I could very easily say the same thing about some of the users of this site logging on simply to troll Apple and incite flame wars in Apple related articles. It happens on both sides, immaturity is rampant on this site amongst fanboys.

Agreed. But in this instance, we are talking about this !Diot Cambodianpatriot and his incessant trolling of Android and Samsung.

It's cos you don't have an opinion, your complete apple biased and a troll so therefore your opinion doesn't matter. Not even to the fellow apple enthusiasts, which you don't have. How does it feel to be completely alone? You're trolling shows how sad you really are.

Another Galaxy Whatever, certainly....

Another best phone in it's class, probably. Like the Note 4 and S6.

The only thing that sucks here is your constant trolling of Android. You're no better than those that incessantly troll iOS. You perpetuate the flame wars. Comment #37 is for you as well.

Samsung really over the "edge" lately. And I like it.

An Alpha Edge would be nice.....

I was thinking the same thing. Last year's Alpha launched on Sept 1, so an August launch for the next gen is plausible.

But I hope the battery life is WAY better. Last year's Alpha was pretty weak at the battery department.

Yeah,they charge people extra $100 for an extra notification bar,and we can only use 1 side at a time

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.
