Curved S7 Edge display reportedly in mass production, as Samsung takes cue from the S6 edge shortages


The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are expected to be out in the wild very soon, showing their beach bodies this Sunday, February 21st, at the MWC expo in Barcelona. Apparently, Samsung has already begun mass production of the respective 5.5″ flexible display for the S7 Edge in its Asan plant, say industry insiders, as it wants to avoid last year’s supply shortages for the S6 edge display.

Samsung reportedly underestimated the demand for its first model with a dual-curve panel then, leading to unrealized potential sales, and a fairly tepid financial quarter after the S6 and S6 edge launched. This year, it is determined to do no such thing, it seems, and has fired up the A2 and A3 production lines at the plant, which can churn out no less than 9 million OLED panels a month, should the need arise.
On a side note, from this publication we are getting yet another confirmation that the Galaxy S7 Edge will sport a 5.5″ display, which is a much wiser move compared to last year when the Edge+ shipped with the same screen size as the Note 5.

Vaio on Wednesday announced Phone Biz, a Windows 10 mobile phone.

The device doesn’t have a SIM, leaving users free to select their own carriers.

The Phone Biz lets users easily access corporate apps, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange, as well as the Azure cloud, according to Vaio.

The OS is synced with the latest version of Windows 10. Users can manage settings from the same Microsoft account as their PCs.

The Phone Biz incorporates Microsoft’s Continuum feature, which lets users connect phones to TVs or monitors, if they want to work on a larger screen.

The Phone Biz supports single sign-on and connection speeds of up to 225 Mbps.

The position and size of tiles are customizable, and the phone comes with the Cortana digital assistant.

The phone can use encryption or a virtual private network. It includes built-in GPS and supports remote data erase and remote locking.

Admins can change users’ access to apps and data remotely.

The Phone Biz will be available on NTT DoCoMo’s network. It reportedly will begin selling in Japan in April for about US$430.
