Rumours dog Samsung S6

by on03 June 2015

Is this a tin foil hat job?

The dark satanic rumour mill continues to manufacture yarns about doom for the Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge.

All official reports say that the S6 edge is in high demand and the beasts have managed to get great reviews, but for some reason rumours say the opposite.

The latest to cross our desk is that Samsung is cutting its Galaxy S6 production by 16 per cent which would indicate that the Samsung is having trouble shifting its stock.

There might be some truth in this, the state of the Korean currency and as well as less-than-expected sales for Samsung in 2014, mean that the company cannot really afford having a lot of phones on hand.

Additionally, Samsung is now readying the Galaxy S6 Active for its public release, this is water and dust-resistant smartphone. It has a microSD card slot and 3,500mAh battery of the device, it stands to reason that Samsung would pump more resources into that phones.

So why is the rumour mill churning to doom Samsung, even when there is little evidence? It could be something to do with the fact that Apple's sales, particularly of its Smartwatch are not doing so well.

If the Tame Apple Press can't get some good story about Apple, it is always a good idea to snatch some dirt about its rivals.

It is worthwhile pointing out that the same source  for the Samsung production story also claims that HTC has reduced production of its One M9 by a third and the company's shares are the lowest they have been for 12 years. Yet the source fails to note how Apple is doing. Odd really.
