Sources Disagree on Cause of Samsung Production Issues

Samsung has said that demand for its Galaxy Note 7 phablet has been higher than expected, which is causing supply shortages. The release date has been adjusted in some markets. A source told Reuters that there was ‘no production issue’ with the curved screens, and shortages would not be a long-term problem. However, an analyst from Macquarie speaking to the Financial Times said that applying “a new touch technology” to the screens was causing delays.
