The curiosity surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge has been high since the time of announcement, but even though both phones are going to be launched today in 20 countries, supply may be quite limited.
The South Korean giant has received an overwhelming response for the mobile device, but they may not be able to supply in accordance to the demand, especially the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.
Orders received from carriers of Samsung summed up to 20 million for the two smartphones, with 15 million placed for Galaxy S6 and five million for the Edge, as pointed out by Forbes.
The company is not looking forward to the shortage of supply that has resulted from a manufacturing issue. Rather, if they have to curb the supply of five million S6 edge units, it may result into loss of customers.
Apple had a similar issue with the iPhone 6 Plus availability back in September and October 2014. However, in that case, the firm was running at full speed but was not able to meet the growing demand of customers.
In the case of Samsung, the scenario is a bit different. The constraint here is the curved screen production. Announcing S6 Edge when the company was not prepared can harm Samsung’s image a lot.
