Samsung’s display division has recently issued a registration for a brand new display entitled ‘Turtle Glass’, which could be an alternative to Gorilla Glass. Following a long collaboration with Corning it seems the two companies will part ways for now, and Turtle Glass could have many applications in Samsung’s TVs, watches and other products as well. It could be that Samsung plans on using Turtle Glass for the Galaxy S7 considering all the rumors that have emerged lately, and it will be interesting to compare with Gorilla Glass once we get our hands on it.
What’s interesting about this recent registration is that it matches the timing of other display rumors such as foldable displays and Project Valley. If we put these things together we could be seeing an exquisite project which will bring us a foldable smartphone with a really resistant display, which makes sense because such a design could easily get scratched or damaged. Samsung is also known for its fantastic quality of displays so something really good could come from combining all these things, but we’ll have to wait and see.
