Samsung cooking up another edged smartphone?

Currently, there are two devices in Samsung’s lineup that rock edged screens. These include the last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the first device to sport an edged screen, and the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge (shown below). According to a report, the Korean tech giant is cooking up another smartphone with an edged screen.


The news comes to us courtesy of South Korea-based ETNews. According to the report, Samsung underestimated the appeal of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, forcing the company to increase yield for the smartphone’s curved screen. With the increase, Samsung will be able to produce as much as 10 million units of the S6 Edge per month by the end of 2015, an increase of 1,000%. Samsung originally planned to produce 1 million units of the S6 Edge per month. Currently, Samsung can produce 3 million units of the smartphone per month.

Samsung Display, a division of Samsung responsible for producing curved screens, is reportedly able to increase production of the said screens, thanks to new manufacturing tech.

The report says that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge will make its debut this coming autumn, but adds that a new edged smartphone is coming thanks to increased yield. It says that this mystery edged smartphone will be available, before the Note 5 and the Note 5 Edge arrives in September.

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