LG trademarks the Arc and Folds names for bendable/foldable smartphones

25 July 2019, 14:13:27

LG trademarks the Arc and Folds names for bendable/foldable smartphonesLetsGoDigital has found out LG patents for names of foldable smartphones. In October last year, LG's CEO said that they are working on a foldable smartphone but at that moment it was too early for the company to join the trend. In November 2018, LG registered several trademarks such as LG Flex, Foldi, Duplex and Bendi. Now, there are two new trademark applications in Korea which seem to be for LG foldable smartphones. These are the Folds and the Arc trademarks. They are already approved.

Over time, various patents have been applied for a foldable LG smartphone, sometimes with the flexible screen on the outside, sometimes on the inside. Earlier this year, the Korean manufacturer even filed a patent for a transparent folding phone. Samsung's and Huawei's delays of their foldable smartphones gave the competition half a year more to work on their foldable smartphone projects. However, the Galaxy Fold and Mate X now seem quite ready to hit the market in two months and it will be probably taking a lot more time for LG to announce its foldable smartphone solution. Source
