Samsung to produce 9 million flexible OLEDs each month to satisfy demand for the Galaxy S7 Edge

Samsung is set to unveil its next flagship phone, the Galaxy S7 next week at the MWC 2016 trade show in Barcelona. According to our information, Samsung will unveil two phones, the S7 and S7 Edge which will sport a curved flexible OLED display.

According to reports from Korea, Samsung Display already started producing the new OLEDs, and secured the capacity to produce 9 million flexible OLEDs per month for the S7 Edge at the A2 and A3 flexible OLED lines - which means that Samsung will pretty much use all its flexible OLED capacity for the new phones.


Samsung seem to have learned from its mistake with the S6 and S6 Edge. Samsung estimated that most consumers will prefer the cheaper (by $100) regular S6, but in reality most consumers (75%) wanted to buy the prettier S6 Edge - and Samsung did not manage to supply enough phones. Samsung hurried to operate the new A3 flexible OLED line, but did not manage to do so in time.
