Corning is the leader in hardened and strengthened glass that's been protecting all of our favorite smartphones and tablets over the past few years. At least from keys and the occasional scuff. Last year at CES they announced Gorilla Glass 2, and this year they're set to announce the strongest most durable glass yet -- Gorilla Glass 3.
Gorilla Glass 2 was used on the popular Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone. This new generation of strengthened, hardened glass was revealed at CES and we were told it would make its way onto devices later this year. Whether the Galaxy S III is the first device to feature it is unknown, but at least we know the phones screen should be one of the most durable of any smartphone available.
Corning, has just published another video showing us their vision of the future and the possibilities with Gorilla Glass and beyond. While almost everything from the video clip is futuristic it does give you an impressive look on the possibilities in the future with not only Corning's glass, but devices and tablets as a whole.
Corning team up with Samsung to possibly provide curved OLED glass in their future devices. I myself am a huge fan of the beveled displays both the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus have been manufactured with - and always wondered when it would finally make it to their other devices.
Gorilla Glass, to bring a brand-new substrate to the market. Lotus Glass is specifically designed for curved screens on organic light-emitting diode displays, which Samsung has been favoring for its mid-range and high-end smartphones for the last eighteen months.
