On August 9, Corning announced that the Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX+ has been selected by Samsung as the cover glass for the Samsung Galaxy watch. Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX+ is a new glass composite with excellent scratch and anti-reflective properties that dramatically enhances the optical clarity of the device while inheriting the inherent toughness of Gorilla Glass.


Consumer research shows that mobile phones are the three most important concerns for consumers: drop, scratch and visibility. Corning has launched its latest glass composite innovation, the Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX+, to help meet the major challenges of today's advanced mobile display devices.


“We are delighted that Samsung has adopted Corning® Gorilla® Glass DX+ on its latest equipment,” said Scott Forester, vice president of Corning Gorilla Glass Markets and Innovations. “Gorilla Glass DX+ combines excellent scratch resistance and excellent optical performance, making it an ideal choice for the cover glass of the digital age.”


Samsung's latest smartwatch chose to use the Gorilla Glass DX+ because it has the industry's best scratch resistance, optical clarity and durability. The Galaxy watch has the best performance of the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem. It offers a long battery life, LTE connectivity, the latest pressure monitoring and sleep status monitoring based on a robust selection of styles. The Corning Gorilla Glass DX+, which was released in July this year, has a front surface reflectance that is about 75% lower than that of ordinary glass. When the brightness of the display is the same, the contrast is also about 50% higher, which greatly enhances the device screen. Visibility. These improvements in optical performance also contribute to the extended battery life. In addition, Gorilla Glass DX+ offers superior scratch resistance comparable to other high-end cover materials.


Currently, this product is mainly used in wearable mobile devices, but with continuous innovation and improvement, this new glass composite will be suitable for larger size equipment. Corning pioneered and led the cover glass industry to continue to develop for more than 10 years. Today, more than 45 mainstream brands and more than 6 billion devices use Corning Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass DX+ is another example of Corning's commitment to continuous innovation – leveraging its core understanding of materials science and process development expertise to create influential solutions that continue to expand the company's market in mobile consumer electronics. leadership.
