Samsung Electronics has raised its manufacturing targets for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge to 8 million units for April, an increase of a million units over its pre-launch target.
Revealed by the South Korean Electronic Times newspaper, Samsung's decision is based on positive market reception following the launch of the Galaxy S6 smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The phones will be available for sale in 20 countries from April 10.
However, there has not been any official confirmation from Samsung on the report.
Featuring a complete glass and metal body for the first time, the Galaxy S6 phones are a result of cutting edge technology and brand new features never before seen in Samsung devices. JK Shin, President and CEO of Samsung, had claimed during the launch that 'With a mission to redefine the brand, engineers at Samsung worked with a philosophy of 'design with purpose' to create the best smartphone ever.'
Given that the Galaxy S6 series are major upgrades over the disappointing Galaxy S5, rising demands on the basis of positive reviews from all corners isn't that surprising yet. We will wait for an exhaustive road test before delivering our verdict, though.
