With the growing popularity of the Galaxy S6 Edge models, Samsung is planning to bring out a new Edge model in the second half of this year.

According to an ETNews report, the additional Edge model will be released before the Galaxy Note 5 Edge, which is expected to be launched alongside the Galaxy Note 5 at the upcoming IFA event.

The report further states that Samsung is focusing more on the smartphone's competitiveness and has increased the production rate of the curved display and cover glass for touch screen panel (TPS).

Samsung is increasing the production of Galaxy S6 Edge. The original production plan for the device was set for one million units per month, which has now been increased to three million.

The smartphone maker is also reviewing a plan to increase the capacity to five million units per month during the first quarter, and further raise it to 10 million units by the end of this year.

"Samsung Electronics is working on stability of supply and demand material and parts for Edge smartphones. Came out as niche models, Galaxy Note Series eventually became main products of Samsung Electronics. Likewise Edge models have high chance that they will form a new flagship category," suggests a source familiar with the developments.
