Trademark filings suggest that Samsung may be getting ready to respond to flagging Galaxy S6 sales by introducing a larger version called the S6 Edge+.

The filing with the USPTO doesn't give anything away other than the name S6 Edge+, but this is in line with previous rumors that have been circulating.

Rumor has it that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will build on the existing Galaxy S6 Edge but that the screen size will increase from 5.1-inch to a phablet sized 5.5- or 5.7-inch.

It's also claimed that the Galaxy S6 Edge+ will, like the LG G4, be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor instead of the Samsung Exynos 7420, come with 3GB of RAM like the existing Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. It is also suggested that the battery size will increase from 2,550mAh to 3,000mAh in response to claims of poor Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge battery life.

This couldn't come at a better time for Samsung as the latest forecasts suggest that the company's profits could fall 24 percent year-over-year compared to Q2 2014.
