In an exclusive interview with The Wall Street Journal earlier today, Samsung’s Head of Mobile, JK Shin, admitted that the curved variant of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S6 Edge, may be thwarted by supply shortages at launch.
Shin stated that “while the Galaxy S6 Edge has obtained an extremely large fan base, resulting in strong demand, the screens are too difficult to make.” He then added that the company is working “hard to resolve the difficulty in supply,” but the issue could last “a while”.
Sadly, that’s all the information we have for the time being. Shin declined to provide any shipment forecasts for the upcoming Galaxy S6 duo, but he did say that he’s expecting shipments to exceed its predecessor the Galaxy S5.
