Samsung is reportedly developing the new "Armor" frame for the smartphones of the immediate future. Now, a new tip suggests the OEM might combine it with another new feature called Pro-Shield. It is apparently destined for various device categories, and might thus benefit the potential tri-folding tablets hinted at in another new leak.

Some recent trademark application leaks indicate that Samsung might reveal next-gen devices with Armor Frame technology, which sounds most like a potential upgrade over the melded frame-cam found in the OEM's current flagship S21 smartphones. Now, similar evidence suggests the company is working on something similar to augment their next generations' displays.

This new technology, as per a new application reportedly submitted to the UK's Intellectual Property Office, will be unveiled as Samsung Pro-Shield. This new potential trademarked term invites speculation that it will be the OEM's answer to Apple's Ceramic Shield, which debuted in the iPhone 12 series.

Its new leak indicates that it can also be applied to wearables (such as the rumored Galaxy Watch4, perhaps). Therefore, it might also benefit more futuristic next-gen products. On that note, the OEM is also reportedly trying to make a trademark of "Samsung S-Foldable", a name that might go well with the potential future generations of top-end phones or tablets.

These devices are currently projected to have multiple hinges in order to assume a more diverse range of poses or modes, as illustrated in new renders prepared by the designer Sarang Sheth in partnership with LetsGoDigital.

The term's new application does seem to confirm that it refers to display technology: therefore, this new buzzword might become much more familiar should devices such as the "Galaxy Z Fold Tab" launch soon as rumored. Alternatively, Samsung might pitch it to other OEMs that also plan to release their own foldables in the near future.
