The Armor Frame trademark application is thin on details, and its short description only signals that it’s a new type of smartphone frame. Samsung’s recent flagship phones come with a metal and aluminum body. Aluminum frames become weaker over time and this could be the reason why the South Korean company is considering a new material for its foldable handsets.
It’s not known what the Armor Frame is made of, but Let’s Go Digital speculates that it might be a military-grade material or it could be made of carbon or titanium, both of which are lighter and stiffer than aluminum but more expensive.
Samsung applied for the trademark on April 13.
