Apple boosts Corning glass investment as iPhone 11 Pro tests limits

Apple boosts Corning glass investment as iPhone 11 Pro tests limits

Apple has splashed a further $250 million in investment into Corning, more than doubling the amount it has pumped into the toughened glass-maker from its Advanced Manufacturing Fund. The new award follows a $200 million grant back in mid-2017, and comes amid the launch of the iPhone 11 Pro - and as the resilience of glass in smartphones becomes all the more important.

Gorilla Glass will also bend for foldable phones soon

Gorilla Glass will also bend for foldable phones soon

The Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X have wowed crowds at MWC 2019 with their folding tricks but while these two bend in different ways, they share one thing in common that enables them to do so. They use plastic polymers for screens instead of glass because the latter just doesn't bend so easily. That said, Corning, creators of the ubiquitous Gorilla Glass, is already working on a solution that could satisfy all requirements. It's just a matter of time and working around the laws of physics.

Gorilla Glass 6 focuses on drops, coming to Galaxy Note 9 maybe

Gorilla Glass 6 focuses on drops, coming to Galaxy Note 9 maybe

Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 has made durability tests one-thirds boring. Unless you have a Mohs level 6 pick in your pocket or an open glass cutter in you bag, phone screens are mostly safe from scratches. They might, however, not be that protected from drops, which could result in shattering. That is why for the Gorilla Glass 6, Corning has focused on making the material survive more drops from higher heights.

Nokia 8 Sirocco: The most unique phone you cannot buy

The Nokia 8 Sirocco isn't coming to the United States, but you may well wish it was. This device has an uncommon collection of specifications to it - one we're not used to rolling with here in the United States. It begins with a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge curved pOLED 2K resolution display "in a compact form that nestles perfectly in any hand."

Apple’s first Advanced Manufacturing Fund investment goes to Corning

Apple’s first Advanced Manufacturing Fund investment goes to Corning

Back at the beginning of the month, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that his company would set aside $1 billion for a new "Advanced Manufacturing Fund." At the time, Cook didn't say who would ultimately benefit from this fund, but today we're learning that Corning will be the first company to get an investment from it. Corning, as many of you already know, is the company behind Gorilla Glass, which adorns many phones on the market today.

OnePlus 3T release details launch

OnePlus 3T release details launch

This morning the OnePlus 3T has been detailed in full - albeit a bit early - thanks to a cached OnePlus webpage via Google. This device takes the features and abilities of the recently launched OnePlus 3 and turns up the volume just a tiny bit. This phone looks almost identical to its most recent predecessor - one could mistake one for the other quite easily.

Galaxy Note 7 screen turns out to be scratch resistant

Galaxy Note 7 screen turns out to be scratch resistant

Although it is definitely its most fatal flaw, the Galaxy Note 7’s first major criticism wasn’t actually about its literally smoking hot battery. Instead, it was about the display that was strengthened by Corning’s new and extra strong Gorilla Glass 5. Smartphone torture expert Zack from JerryRigEverything refuted the marketing, even causing Corning itself to put out a statement in its defense. Now, nearly three months later, JerryRigEverything admits an innocent error in his test and, in a complete U-turn, proves that the Galaxy Note 7 doesn’t scratch easily after all. Too bad it’s all moot now.

Corning Gorilla Glass SR+, they suggest, will "significantly reduce visible scratches while delivering the toughness, optical clarity, and touch sensitivity that make Gorilla Glass famous."

Corning tries to refute Galaxy Note 7 scratch test fail

Corning tries to refute Galaxy Note 7 scratch test fail

More shatter resistant but not really more scratch resistant. That might be the summary of Corning’s point about the Gorilla Glass 5 when its newest product was put to a test on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, leaving doubts as to the practical benefits of the new glass material. In a semi-official response to the scratch test, Corning’s execs try to offer explanations for the seemingly disappointing, if not shocking, evidence while, at the same time, not exactly offering assurances to users who might encounter similar real-world cases.

How Gorilla Glass 5 made surviving everyday phone drops the priority

How Gorilla Glass 5 made surviving everyday phone drops the priority

It's a fact of life that, as smartphones have got bigger, slimmer, and more slippery, you're increasingly likely to drop them while playing Pokemon GO and smash the display. Corning can't stop you from getting over-excited at the sight of a wild Pikachu, but it does have a new version of its toughened glass, Gorilla Glass 5, which promises even greater resilience to being dropped on the next generation of smartphones and other devices.

Vibrant Corning Gorilla Glass paves way for bright multi-color logos

Corning, maker of Gorilla Glass, has announced the availability of a new technology that will enable manufacturers to display bright, multi-color logos on their devices.
