Corning is preparing to supply its new “Gorilla Glass” product that has improved drop performance and is more scratch resistant than other glasses that are on the market to Samsung Electronics and it will look to secure multinational companies as its customers as quickly as it can through excellent qualities that dominate that of its competitors.
“According to our internal investigation, smartphone users prefer a glass for smartphones that does not get damaged even when smartphones are dropped and is more resistant to scratches.” said President Kim Jeom-sik of Corning Gorilla Glass Korea. “Our latest product has 25% better drop performance and two times more scratch-resistant than its predecessor.” He also added that the company’s Gorilla Glass Victus will be used on Samsung Electronics’ next smartphone.
