SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 17, 2010 — Corning Inc. has announced that its Gorilla glass has been designed into the Samsung Electronics Galaxy S, a newly released smartphone.

“Device makers are challenged with designing stylish yet durable products,” said Haeng Hee Lee, president of Corning Korea Co. Ltd. “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.”

The Galaxy S features a 4-in. superactive-matrix OLED (AMOLED) display and a slim, highly durable design. It weighs ~119 g and is enabled in part by using the Gorilla glass – a scratch-resistant, alkali-aluminosilicate, thin- sheet glass – as a protective cover.

B.J. 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 … smartphone features by enabling a high-quality touch display.”

More than 20 manufacturers of PC and handheld devices have designed the Gorilla glass into more than 225 devices, and more than 55 models will be released over the next six months, according to Corning.
