Gorilla Glass DX and DX+ will protect and enhance your mobile photography

Dedicated digital cameras are largely a thing of the past -- no one needs to carry around a point-and-shoot camera when they can simply whip out their smartphone and take all the images they want. There is a downside, however, which is that your phone is heavily used in ways your old digital camera likely wasn't and that means one big issue: scratches on the camera lens.

Samsung’s next foldable phone might use foldable Gorilla Glass

Samsung’s next foldable phone might use foldable Gorilla Glass

Foldable phones, the ones with actual flexible and foldable screens, tickle the imagination and spark fantasies. The reality, unfortunately, is that the thing that makes the screen flexible is the very thing that also makes it less durable, at least from scratches. Samsung has definitely improved its foldable display since the disastrous days of the first Galaxy Fold but things might start to get even better now that Corning, makers of the much-touted Gorilla Glass, is reportedly involved.

You keep dropping your phone, so Gorilla Glass had to get better

It's been a couple of years since we've seen a new version of Gorilla Glass, but today, Corning announced just that.

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

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.
