Back in November Corning announced their new Gorilla Glass 4 which is said to be tougher and more resistant to breaks than the previous versions.
Now Corning has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha will be the first smartphone to feature their new Gorilla Glass 4.
At less than 7 mm thick, the Galaxy ALPHA offers the distinctive design experience that consumers demand. Its slim profile and light weight, coupled with its durable Gorilla Glass 4 cover glass, make the Galaxy ALPHA a great fit for consumers who want a sophisticated look and feel without sacrificing functionality.
“Corning spends a great deal of time collaborating with Samsung to recommend solutions that will continually improve their device design and performance,” said Cliff Hund, general manager and president, Corning East Asia. “Device makers want to go thinner without sacrificing damage resistance. Samsung is not only meeting these requirements, but is on the cutting edge of smartphone design. The Galaxy ALPHA is the culmination of our close collaboration with Samsung.”
