Samsung is expected to introduce new foldable phones in the second half of the year. After the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip, the South Korean tech giant will follow up with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. We’re pretty sure about the names, but we’re more curious about the specs and features. There’s been a lot of talk about folding smartphones, but we still take things with a pinch of salt.
Next-gen Samsung Galaxy Z folding devices may come with what’s called an ‘Armor Frame’. It’s unclear what it is, but the South Korean tech giant has recently applied for a trademark not only in South Korea (KIPO) but also in the United States (USPTO) and Europe (EUIPO). It is said to be a very strong phone frame.
Samsung is also saying to use ultra-thin glass (UTG) for the display. This means that the screen will be more resistant to scratches. TO Armor Samsung Armor for folding smartphones means increased durability. Foldable devices would be better than the original versions.
The Class 9 category in the trademark means that it has something to do with smartphones and smartphone frames. The sturdy frame could be made of new metal, same as the material used for the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold 2.
If it’s not plastic, Samsung uses aluminum, but it becomes less rigid over time. It loses strength, which makes the phone not as durable. The company must be thinking of a better solution, one that offers a more powerful phone. The construction must also be accompanied by a stronger hinge.
The description of the Armor Frame is not clear, but we are anticipating a really stronger frame or construction. Something that meets the requirements of the military standard MIL-STD-810G. We also expect one that is more resistant to shocks, as is the case with most rugged phones.
