Is the Future Foldable?
Foldable devices have received much attention recently, as manufacturers introduce new form factors and large displays for smartphones and devices.
The current plastic-based solutions have fundamental challenges around optics, scratch and warp. We believe glass will be a key component of the ultimate cover solution. That said, we also know today’s glass solutions still need to be improved.
Corning has developed an ultra-thin, durable, and optically advanced glass solution that is commercially available today. We are actively developing next-generation glass-based solutions that will continue to push the boundaries of toughness and offer consumers the damage protection they expect of their devices. Corning has a long history of innovating our processes over time for new applications and we continue to leverage and advance our existing technology and manufacturing processes for the development of our ultra-thin, bendable glass. Our long history and learnings in optical fiber, display glass, and strengthened cover glass have given us deep insight into the challenges and potential solutions for our ultra-thin bendable glass solutions.
