Samsung reportedly received orders totaling 15 million Galaxy S6 and 5 million Galaxy S6 edge units from carriers. This demand seems to have surprised even the company, which is now scrambling to manufacture enough units.
Korean publication Etnews reports that the initial plans were for 12 million units total – 8 million of the Galaxy S6 and 4 million of the S6 edge. The total number has been revised to 13 million.
Of those, 4 million Galaxy S6 units will roll off the assembly lines this month along with 1 million Galaxy S6. Those will be followed by the April production run, which will bring the total to 13 million.
This means some carriers may need to delay the launch of the S6 flagship duo and even if they don’t the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will be in limited supply at launch time.
