Gorilla Glass has been a tremendous success for Corning, enjoying excellent market acceptance across mobile device industries. Handset and tablet device manufacturers are clearly driving toward higher functionality from thinner designs.
So Samsung and Corning have now announced a new joint venture, which will see Corning’s Lotus Glass technology on the face of future Galaxy smartphones. Lotus Glass promises to bring enhanced picture quality, better response times, and higher resolutions, all while also conserving power to keep your phone running longer on the modern day battery hungry smartphone.
“The intrinsic thermal consistency of Corning Lotus Glass allows it to retain its shape and quality during high-temperature processing. Decreased compaction and variation during the crystallization and activation step further reduces stress and distortions to the substrate. This enables tighter design rules in advanced backplanes for higher resolution and faster response time”.
