Samsung set to crush Gorilla Glass?
As Samsung finds more ways to bolster its profit margins, American glass producer, Corning, looks to become the next victim of the Korean’s hammer.
Earlier this year, Samsung severed ties with Qualcomm during the production of the Galaxy S6. Previously, the California-headquartered semiconductor producer was always employed in manufacturing the chipsets inside Samsung flagships and other Samsung products but this year eventually, Samsung used its own in-house Exynos to produce chipsets for not only the Galaxy S6 but the Galaxy S6 edge, Note 5 and the Galaxy edge plus as well.
Corning is a well-known producer of highly scratch-resistant glass for touchscreen displays on smartphones, however, with Samsung’s registration of certain names in the glass niche; it appears something is going amiss for the former.
Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, filed a trademark application for “Turtle Glass,” in contrast to Corning’s popular Gorilla Glass which hardly has any major challenger in recent years.
Samsung hasn’t discussed about Turtle Glass in the public but it wouldn’t turn out a huge surprise when the tech appears in the upcoming Galaxy S7 next year.
