Samsung arguably manufactures some of the most durable foldable smartphones on the market. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 (review) and Galaxy Z Flip 5 (review) both debuted as among the first foldables to feature dust resistance on top of having waterproof rating. It now appears Samsung might be working to make the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Flip 6 even more durable than their predecessors.

In a recently discovered filing (via Galaxy Club), Samsung filed a trademark called IronFlex in South Korea's Intellectual Property Office. Essentially, the new label is described as a foldable OLED display panel that to be used in foldable smartphones. However, it was also mentioned that the range could include other form of devices such as wearables, TVs, and laptops.

Not much else is detailed apart from the name, but the included 'Flex' keyword is familiar in the existing feature list on Samsung's foldable smartphones. Hence, it does open the possibility that the feature will arrive first on the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 that are set to be announced sometime this year.

For what's it worth, IronFlex might mean folding display panels with increased robustness compared to the current panels on Samsung's devices. On such a note, the company conservatively rated the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 to work with an average of 200,000 folds despite these Galaxy devices lasting longer than advertised, even beating some alternatives with higher figures.

Even so, the IronFlex technology could be utilized on Samsung's Galaxy XR headset as well, which is rumored to be made official alongside these foldables. The headset is tipped to be a premium entry that will rival the likes of Apple's Vision Pro. Additionally, it could be powered by the new Snapdragon XR2+ Gen 2 chip that Qualcomm recently announced.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
