Availability of Samsung Galaxy S6 edge might be limited by supply of curved glass for the device’s display. Samsung has partnered with Corning to create the dual curved display for its hot recent flagship smartphone.

Reportedly, Samsung planned to ship between 8 million and 8.5 million curved glass units in Q2 this year. However, low yield will prevent the Korean giant’s supplier to ship more than 6.5 million units. Samsung is allegedly looking for recent suppliers to address the issue.

The dual curved glass of Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is made using 3D thermoforming. The material is heated to 800 degrees Celsius in order to be molded into its unique shape.

The finished curved glass component isn’t cheap either. It is assumed to cost around $25.

It is hardly a surprise that Samsung is trying to increase the curved glass yield for Galaxy S6 edge. Since its introduction, the smartphone has gathered a remarkable deal of attention - it won the “Best recent handset award at MWC 2015.
