The name Corning is known for everything to do with glass and ceramics. In the mobile industry, it is very popular for Corning Glass which is used as protection for most smartphone screens. Last year, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus was introduced as the toughest Gorilla Glass in the world. We also learned that Samsung partnered with Corning to develop glass for its foldable phones. Fast forward to today, we are learning about the company finally expanding its business to optimize the performance of mobile device cameras.
A new category has been Announced. Durable and scratch resistant glass composite products now have a new category. The Corning Gorilla Glass with DX Y Corning Gorilla Glass with DX + has been introduced. The technology will be ready for mobile device cameras, allowing ordinary users to take advantage of professional-level image capture.
The new products promise durability, superior scratch resistance, and advanced optical performance. Camera optics are getting even better for smartphones. As mobile photography expands, brands like Corning need to get even better.
Jaymin Amin, Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass saying, “Corning’s Gorilla Glass compounds not only provide mobile device camera lens covers with increased scratch resistance and durability compared to traditional coatings, but also the improved optical performance required for these devices.”
Samsung will first use the new Gorilla Glass DX products for its camera lens covers. Gorilla Glass DX products have already been used in millions of wearable devices. It is only now that they will be used in mobile camera lens covers.
There is a demand for premium image and video features. OEMs have responded by using advanced capabilities such as infrared sensors, wide-angle and telephoto lenses. The category of cameras is always updating, but the glass that covers them may not be as durable.
