Samsung and HTC cutting down Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9 component orders?

According to Samsung, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge are on their way to surpassing the sales of the Galaxy S5. This statement came after reports that claimed that the two new flagships were off to a slow start. Now, new information reveals that the two may be suffering from sluggish sales.


The news comes to us courtesy of Taiwan-based UDN. According to the site, Samsung has cut down on component orders for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge by 16%.

This goes against predictions made by analysts, saying the South Korean tech giant will sell 50 million units of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge combined by the end of this year. This said, Samsung is rumoured to be planning to bump up production of the S6 Edge threefold to 46 million units this 2015.

Meanwhile, word on the street is, HTC is having problems selling the HTC One M9, resulting in the Taiwanese smartphone maker cutting down component orders for its new flagship by 30%. HTC is said to planning to produce 3.2 million units of the One M9 this year.

Of course, since this anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
