Without a doubt the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the most exciting handsets around right now, and that means a lot of anticipation as the launch date approaches on April 10th.
There are a number of reasons why its the must-have handset of the year but a lot of that has to do with the curved screen, with the edges gracefully falling away on either side. Coupled with Samsung's new glass and metal design philosophy, its arguably one of the most beautiful phones ever made and it has the specs (and price!) to match.And it's set to be even more unique for one more reason - the handset will be in limited supply.
Samsung has come out to warn costumers that there will be limited amounts of the Galaxy S6 Edge available at launch, and that some people simple won't get a handset anywhere near launch date. The issue has to do with amanufacturing difficulty around the curved screen, with the company struggling to fill orders to retailers just days before the handset is due on shelves.
Right from the start, that's just going to increase demand for the phones which do make it to market and will help turn the Galaxy S6 Edge into even more of a premium item, especially considering the already high asking price of close to €900. These issues won't effect supplies of the slightly cheaper Galaxy S6, which is also expected to be one of Samsung's most commerically successful handsets in years.
There's no official word on just how limited supplies of the Edge will be, but if you haven't pre-ordered one yet it's likely to be months before you get your hands on its sleek curves.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be available on the 10th of April 2015.
