New glass bendy screens ‘to be produced’

Corning’s Gorilla Glass customers include Apple and Samsung Electronics.

By CBR Staff Writer

New smartphone glass screens are set to be developed by American manufacturer Corning this year.

The shatter-resistant screens created with Corning’s 3D Gorilla Glass could be moulded into curved shapes to suit new, and more creative phone designs, claims the firm, which is collaborating with Taiwanese firm G-Tech Optoelectronics to start manufacturing them.

Corning added that the new processing technology would make the thickness of Gorilla Glass uniform even when it is moulded into different shapes.

Curved displays allow smart devices to be developed in more shapes and allow on-screen data to spread out onto the sides of devices, Bloomberg reported.

Corning’s Gorilla Glass customers include Apple and Samsung Electronics.

Global smartphone makers have allegedly been approaching Corning and other suppliers for more flexible parts as well.

The glassmaker depends on display technology to generate a majority of its profits.
