Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge was the first Dual-edged curved smartphone on the market, the device's sales was higher than expected. Today, BBC reported that the Korean giant is struggling to meet the S6 Edge supply demand.
The reason of this shortage is that the curved screen of the Edge is very difficult to manufacture, it takes a long complicated process that leads on delays in the production line.
"Samsung will have a serious issue if the shortage is due to the difficulty of producing the curved screen. They [Samsung] must succeed in the launch of these new flagship phones to regain leadership in the high-end segment. They have a window of opportunity until the new iPhone comes out. The product and design is great - but [it] lacks service differentiation." - Mobile analyst, Thomas Husson at Forrester told the BBC
The HTC Nexus 9 was supposed to launch on T-Mobile by early December, last we heard anything about this subject. Well, it's early December now, and the tablet is nowhere to be found at the carrier's stores.
What's the reason for that... According to a leaked internal communication from T-Mobile, the launch of the HTC-made Nexus 9 on the carrier has been delayed indefinitely.
What's worse than an indefinite delay ? T-Mobile itself still doesn't know when it will actually have the Nexus 9 in stock. So if you were planning to buy this tablet from this carrier, you'll need to be patient. This delay is due to a shortage in the Nexus 9 stock for HTC. We hope T-Mobile sort this out before Christmas.
