Corning recently announced their new Gorilla Glass 6 for smartphones, the compay also announced their new Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+.
The new Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ are designed for wearable devices like the latest smartwatches.
These revolutionary new cover glass enhancements follow the introduction earlier today of Corning’s most durable cover glass to date, Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6. An extension of Corning® Gorilla® Glass SR+, both Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ glass composites can be used in combination with Corning’s Gorilla Glass products to best address mobile device manufacturers’ design priorities. While currently being adopted primarily for wearable mobile devices, developments are underway to adapt these new glass composites to larger form-factor devices.
“We have surveyed more than 85,000 global consumers* over the past seven years, and we discovered that nearly 50 percent cited readability as a highly desired feature in a cover glass,” said Scott Forester, division vice president, Marketing and Innovation Products, Corning Gorilla Glass. “But we also know that consumers don’t want to sacrifice the scratch resistance and durability that they’ve come to expect. Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ address this challenge by delivering outstanding readability combined with best-in-class scratch resistance and the inherent toughness of Gorilla Glass, making them ideal for today’s advanced mobile displays.”
