Samsung’s going to be first to bring Corning’s strong new camera glass to phones


Last updated: July 23rd, 2021 at 08:25 UTC+02:00

Samsung has been using Corning’s Gorilla Glass lineup on its smartphones and smartwatches for years. Now, it will be the first brand to bring Corning’s special Gorilla Glass that is specifically designed to protect smartphone camera lenses. The new glass panel not only protects smartphone cameras from scratches but also offers them anti-reflective properties.

Corning has unveiled Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ protective panels for smartphone camera lenses. These glass composites can transmit 98% of the ambient light to the camera sensor and offer unmatched scratch resistance. According to Corning, Gorilla Glass DX maintain excellent scratch resistance in everyday use, while Gorilla Glass DX+ offers scratch resistance performance that’s close to sapphire, which is commendable.

Looking at the timing of the announcement, it is expected that Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ would debut on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The two foldable smartphones will be announced during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked August 2021 event on August 11. The smartphones are also expected to feature Gorilla Glass Victus to protect their cover displays.

Samsung uses Gorilla Glass Victus on its recent flagship smartphones, while mid-range Galaxy smartphones use lower tiers of Gorilla Glass (Gorilla Glass 3 and Gorilla Glass 5). On its smartwatches, the company uses Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ panels to protect their circular Super AMOLED displays.
