The trademark spotted by Galaxy Club doesn’t reveal much except for the name Ironflex and that it’s a foldable display technology. The report states that the new label has been described as a foldable OLED display to be used in foldable smartphones. However, the trademark also mentions that the usage case could be extended to devices like TVs, laptops, and watches. The report also suggests that Samsung might use Ironflex display on its Galaxy XR headset as well.

While no other details have been revealed, the use of Flex word confirms that the Ironflex display technology might make its debut on the future Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip phones. A recent Galaxy Z Fold 6 prototype leak revealed that the smartphone will come with a wider zero gap design compared to Galaxy Z Fold 5. The upcoming devices are also rumoured to feature larger displays, the same camera hardware as their predecessors, etc.

Notably, Samsung added dust-resistant along with water resistance on its Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 last year. But keep in mind that this is still a patent and the technology could take a longer time to make an appearance when it comes to consumer ready devices.

Samsung typically announces the foldable smartphones in the second half of the year, which is around July-August. For now, Samsung is gearing up to introduce the Galaxy S24 series, which will launch on January 17. The Galaxy S series will focus on AI-driven features this year.
