The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are even hotter than Samsung thought they would be

March 10th, 2015 at 12:11 PM
Galaxy S6 Release Date Availability

Following a wildly successful showing at Mobile World Congress this year, Samsung has more momentum now than it has at any point over the past few years. The ground-up redesign of the Galaxy S6 was both a sigh of relief and a step into the future for a company that desperately needed to confront its financial struggles.

DON’T MISS: An even better version of the Galaxy S6 is coming, but it won’t be available at launch

Those struggles might soon be a thing of the past, if early reports are to be believed. Just last week, it was brought to our attention that mobile carriers have already ordered 20 million Galaxy S6 and S6 edge units — a new record, according to the European carrier that shared the news.

Following up that report, ETNews now claims that Samsung is increasing its initial production volume by 13 million units to account for the surge of international interest. According to the rumor, the first 5 million units will be produced in March with the remaining 8 million to be produced in April.

As for the split, it appears that Samsung will build 9 million Galaxy S6 units and 4 million S6 edge units. Considering the increased price and potentially niche appeal of the curved display of the S6 edge, it makes sense that Samsung would lean more heavily into the standard model.
