Samsung highlights Galaxy S6 Edge production in new promo vid

You can’t talk about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge without turning your attention to its over-the-edge curved screen; hell, that’s the very thing that makes it the Edge in the first place, and not the regular old Galaxy S6. Samsung’s already committing new resources to the production of this oh-so-important component, and today it pulls back the curtain a bit on just how it goes about making not just these displays, but also the rest of the phone’s body, with the publication of a new GS6 Edge promo video.

OK, so we’re not getting a guided factory tour or anything nearly so in-depth. But we do get to seem some cool (or should we say hot) stuff like the 800C process needed to form the the Edge’s display into that iconic curve. The phone’s body gets crafted from a special high-strength aluminum alloy, and a nano-scale multi-coat process helps give the handset’s back panel its polished look.

While Samsung ventures into the hyperbolic here and there, it’s still neat to see how the GS6 Edge’s parts are produced like this, even if the look we get here only leaves us wanting to see more.
