Samsung Could Change Galaxy S6 Edge’s Production Process
Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, both of these smartphones are Samsung’s latest flagship babies and the company is close to rolling out the devices in several regions.
As you know, between the two models, Galaxy S6 Edge has dual curved display. While it does give it a touch of elegance, it also raises the production costs along with other hurdles related to manufacturing.
Creating that beautiful display is no easy task. The glass panel is heated on both sides before bending the right and left edges. Heating isn’t the problem, polishing the display takes up 60 to 70 percent of S6 Edge production cost.
Heating the device also causes micro wrinkles, which could lead to low yield issues.
So what is Samsung doing to improve things? According to a new report, Samsung is looking to improve its production process for S6 Edge.
Samsung is working on a new method to heat up the glass panel that will increase production capacity, while at the same time reducing costs.
The report suggests that Samsung will heat-up just one side of the glass panel. This will let them achieve higher efficiency and reduce production costs along with micro wrinkles.
The production capacity will be increased by 60 to 70 percent if the report is to be believed.
It is also suggested that the new method is already being used in Samsung’s factories in Vietnam. Sources say Samsung will soon change the production process for S6 Edge across all of its factories.
The question is, if the process is being used and it reduces costs, will the market price for S6 Edge go down? Or will it remain the same?
