Coring Gorilla Glass is one thing that's common to most phones out there in the market - be it a device from LG or from Xiaomi. Though, there's a competitor in the form of DragonTrail glass from Asahi which has succeeded to make its way into budget devices of present day, it's still nowhere near the popularity enjoyed by Gorilla Glass. However Samsung soon aims to break this jinx!
Yes, you guess it, Korean Electronics maker is working on their own protective glass. And it's no wonder that the product is called a Turtle Glass - turtles do have some hard-shells on their back! No wonder, where Samsung took the inspiration from.
The company new product was spotted while in a patent application in its home country, South Korea. The application further adds that the Turtle Glass is aimed to be used in mobiles, tablets, music player, cameras etc. With the inception of Turtle Glass it is all but probable that the company will be using this all new Glass in their Galaxy Smartphones.
This is for sure a bad news for Corning as Samsung was one of their largest sourcer. However it is believed that Samsung will be using the Turtle Glass for their own use for some time now, before they make it commercial - much like their Exynos Range of SoC.
It would however be interesting to see what the Turtle Glass brings to the platter!
