Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coming to CES 2012

Post Time:Jan 06,2012Classify:Company NewsView:425

Over the past handful of months, Corning has all but dominated the airwaves when it comes to must-have features on a smartphone or tablet device with their patented Gorilla Glass brand of display covering panes – today they’ve revealed that the second iteration, Gorilla Glass 2, will make its face known at

This new forumula should improve Corning’s standing in the mobile world that, at the end of 2011, saw a few major releases with Gorilla Glass noticeably missing from the equation. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, for example, came after waves of Samsung’s Galaxy S II devices (which had Gorilla Glass) with a surprise: reinforced glass, but not Corning’s. So the folks at Corning are releasing their second iteration – not necessarily because of the Galaxy Nexus, of course, but releasing it all the same.

Senior vice president and general manager of Corning Specialty Materials James R. Steiner had the following to say on the second wave:

“Corning Gorilla Glass has been a tremendous success for Corning, enjoying excellent market acceptance across mobile device industries. … As we did last year [at CES], we’ll provide consumers and customers visiting the Corning booth the opportunity to test first-hand the outstanding damage resistance and flexibility of this industry-leading, ultra-thin, and tough specialty glass,” – Steiner
