Earlier reports this month suggested that Samsung was caught unawares by the demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge which is why some customers might have a hard time getting their hands on one. Supposedly the production process of the curved glass display is also to blame for the alleged supply constraint.
However according to a report from South Korea (via G for Games) it seems that Samsung is looking to change the manufacturing process of the curved glass display which will hopefully result in a higher yield and will help speed orders along. The problem at the moment involves heating the edges of the display before curving both sides.
However the heating process is said to cause micro wrinkles in the final product which is why production yields are said to be low. To help deal with this problem, Samsung is said to have come up with a new process which supposedly just heats up on side of the glass panel first, which in turn reduces the cost of polishing and will also help improve production yield.
The company is said to have begun testing the new process in its factories in Vietnam although it is unclear when this process will be applied across Samsung’s manufacturing plants, but hopefully it will be soon and we will start seeing more Galaxy S6 Edge handsets hit the market.
