Corning Incorporated has introduced a new category for its scratch-resistant and durable glass composite products – Corning Gorilla Glass with DX and Corning Gorilla Glass with DX+. to optimize the performance of mobile device cameras. The application of this technology to mobile device cameras enables professional-grade image capture through a unique combination of advanced optical performance, superior scratch resistance, and durability.
“Antireflective coatings have long been used on conventional cameras to improve light capture. However, these coatings have a propensity to scratch easily, negatively impacting image quality. Corning’s Gorilla Glass composites not only provide mobile device camera lens covers with enhanced scratch resistance and durability compared to traditional coatings, but also the improved optical performance required for these devices.”, said Jaymin Amin, Vice President & General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass. “
According to Corning, these new technologies are engineered to be used with Corning’s full portfolio of Gorilla Glass products and enables unparalleled camera optics for smartphones by allowing 98% light capture, creating higher-quality images and videos while maintaining Gorilla Glass toughness. Since 2016, Gorilla Glass DX products have been utilized on more than 30 million wearable devices and are now being adopted on mobile phone camera lens covers. Samsung will be the first customer to adopt the Gorilla Glass DX products for camera lens covers.
“We’ve engineered the ideal solution for camera lens covers. By capturing 98% of light for the camera lens, our glass composites augment the full capability of the camera design and help create high-quality images and videos. Our Gorilla Glass DX products offer the industry’s best combination of optical performance and protection for the ultimate consumer experience.”, said Jaymin Amin, Vice President, Technology & Product Development, Corning Specialty Materials.
