The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge that comes with a dual-edge curved display is receiving overwhelming response from critics and consumers. Rumors have it that Samsung is working on a new curved display smartphone that is pegged to arrive before September.
According to G for Games, which cites ET News as its source, the rumored curved display smartphone is slated for release in the second half of the year. The device is expected to arrive before the Galaxy Note 5 Edge rolls out during the IFA 2015 trade show in Berlin in September. Unlike the Galaxy Edge, which features a single curved display, the Note 5 Edge is rumored to be designed with a three-sided display like the Galaxy S6 Edge.
The report claims that the reason why Samsung plans to release a new Edge device is that the Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge have received good reviews. To meet the demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge model, Samsung is said to be increasing production by 10 million units per month through year's end. At present, the existing yield of the Galaxy S6 Edge is around 3 million units per month.
As of this writing, there is no official confirmation from Samsung on releasing more Galaxy S6 Edge units and new curved display smartphone. Hence, industry experts are skeptical whether the South Korean company will be able to roll out more number of flexible display devices.
Samsung Display is the wing of the company that manufactures the curved display devices. The ET News report adds that Samsung is investing heavily in newer manufacturing technologies so it can release more curved display devices at faster rates.
International Business Times reported Friday that the Galaxy Note 5 will come with Ultra HD display, Exynos 7422 chipset, 3 GB of RAM and more. As far as the Note 5 Edge or Note Edge 2 is concerned, the report claims that the device will not be a high-end model. It will be packed with a 5.4-inch or 5.5-inch dual-edge Super AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 808 SoC, 16 GB inbuilt storage, 16 MP camera, 8 MP camera and S-Pen stylus.
