In my... moreLG just following Samsung really. Samsung started she'd devices and everyone knows they have been working on dual edged.
LG just rushed their prototype out.
I think this step is logical, they could supress the lower buttons to increase the screen size.

They did not necessarily invent it. Samsung being a big company that utilizes OLED to their devices by the millions which contributed OLED's growth and popularity up front. No wonder one would most likely think Samsung invented it
In my recall, 'LG Display' already showcased a concept, if not a demo nor a dummy unit, of a 6-inch phablet with 'Dual Edge' display at a 'private showroom' at CES 2015. It is an even curvier version of the Galaxy Note Edge. Plastic OLED may be a better fit for such concepts. Curves and edges on the same device may just happen in the near future, and LG might just be able to bring that 'curved and double-edged' first (unless Chinese manufacturers read this and manages to pull a fast one before either of the big 2 - Samsung or LG). Whoever's first is none of my deepest concerns.
Although Samsung has its allegedly rumored 'Edge variant' (Dual Edge or not) of the Galaxy S6 - with the SM-G925F model number (around $710) - enter India for R&D or testing, LG Display managed to get their own prototype with a dual edge flavor for our eyes to taste (since CES attendees were not able to feel it because hands were off-limits)
I love my Note Edge. Soon others will follow just like with Phablets.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2015samsung was first with flexible display... It was not a idea of lg for dual edge... Note 4 was... moreIndeed, LG only way later started focusing on Oled technology, but somehow they managed to bring forth the only proper phone with Flexible screen to this point.
In any case, Samsung and LG both happen to borrow idea's from each other, it's not Samsung that 'invents' everything first. When it comes to battery technology for example, Samsung was quick to try and follow LG's Li-po technologies which are dire needed for wearables and flexible devices.
The edge of my phone's are the first to scratch and dent, why would I buy this first? Until there's an actual use for the edges no thank you gimmicks again. Good luck to S6, I'm going to buy iPhone 6+. Hahaha
This haters are either "PAID" or those that cannot afford to buy and will just "BASH" to get attention. You should apply for a check-up then, its ADHD prone most likely.
Iskander, 20 Jan 2015Actually, LG Displays already showed a proof-of-concept phone on CES this year with edges on b... moresamsung was first with flexible display... It was not a idea of lg for dual edge... Note 4 was first going to be dual edged... Leaks befor ces showed samsung s6 may be dual edged... edge based phone is a samsung plan dude...
sam, 20 Jan 2015but it costs 65k.. its way too much for its brand... only apple can sell at that price???
I think brandwise, people consider samsung next to apple only...
Thanks Samsung, now we know that 99% of us human beings doesn't have a proper hand like staffs in the Samsung HQ.
Do you know Samsung showed many flexible bend screen products years before? With that in mind, LG was at least 2 years behind Samsung technology.
Using your words, LG not only isn't the holy grail in smartphone development/design by any means, they are also a big copycat.
FreezeGame, 19 Jan 2015Best in class! Are you a righty? Are you a lefty? Doesn't matter...Samsung has you covered. ... moreActually, LG Displays already showed a proof-of-concept phone on CES this year with edges on both sides. And now Samsung possibly maybe may use it on the S6? We'll see, but Samsung isn't the holy grail in smartphone development/design by any means.
Aashishast, 20 Jan 2015Haha... Nokia invented it first a long time ago. Even entry level lumias have it.lg adopted later onDid you know that LG was patented knock on since 2008?
Mr. Objective, 20 Jan 2015FG get a life. Edge screen design is pointless. Duble tap to lock/unlock is a true and helpful... moreHaha... Nokia invented it first a long time ago. Even entry level lumias have it.lg adopted later on
