The company also stated that it won't be able to keep up with demand for the S6 Edge in the near term because the curved screens are harder to manufacture.
               
"Some carriers are switching existing orders to get more of the S6 edge, and it looks like demand for the model will exceed supply throughout this year," said HMC Investment analyst Greg Roh.

"That means average selling price will fall at a slower rate, which will have a positive impact on Samsung overall," he added.

Galaxy Note Edge has a separate screen on the edge of phone equivalent to breadth of a pencil and runs parallel along with screen. This screen can display SMS or email text, alarm, time, etc as customised by user.

Powered by the Android 4.4 KitKat mobile operating system, the Galaxy Note Edge has a quad-core 2.7GHz Qualcomm QCOM +0.1% Snapdragon processor and sports 5.6-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen (2560 x 1440 resolution).

Samsung previously relied heavily on Qualcomm chips for its flagship phones, but recent reports based on dismantling Samsung's handsets showed the firm replaced many Qualcomm chips with its own.
