SEOUL, South Korea--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), a world leader in
specialty glass and ceramics, announced today that Corning®Gorilla® glass has been designed into the Samsung
Electronics Galaxy S, a newly released premium smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy S features a four-inch super AMOLED display, while weighing roughly 119 grams in a slim,
highly durable design. The enhanced super AMOLED display is enabled in part by using Corning Gorilla glass as the
protective cover. Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is both scratch
resistant and durable.
BJ Kang, senior manager of Samsung Electronics said, “Advanced display technology plays a crucial role in meeting
consumers’ growing expectations on high-end mobile devices, especially smartphones. Corning’s Gorilla glass has
helped maximize Galaxy S’s unique smartphone features by enabling a high-quality touch display.”
Haeng Hee Lee, president of Corning Korea Company Ltd added, “Device makers are challenged with designing
stylish yet durable products. The Galaxy S is a fine example of a premium device created through the combination of
Corning’s specialty glass and Samsung’s mobile display technologies. Corning’s Gorilla glass enables device makers
to introduce durable display products with innovative designs.”
More than 20 major makers of PC and handheld devices have already recognized the benefits of Gorilla glass by
designing it into more than 225 devices, and more than 55 models will be released over the next six months.
