LG has gained ground in the smartphone market over the last few years, but 2015 has been tough for the company and South Korean rival Samsung has pulled ahead again. LG has never been shy about copying its larger compatriot and it seems as though history may repeat itself as the company has taken out a trademark for G Edge.

Samsung is the only company making mainstream devices with folded glass screens, the just launched Galaxy S6 Edge Plus followed the S6 Edge earlier in the year, which itself was proceeded by the trail blazing Galaxy Note Edge. LG is looking increasingly likely to be the next company to weigh in with this technology with the LG G Edge, a handset the company has been working on for some time and now has its own trademark.

Earlier in the year LG showed off a folded screen handset at CES 2015, a device that looked a prototype level smartphone, although LG was only showing it off behind closed doors.
