Samsung Galaxy S Smartphone gets Gorilla Glass Protective Screen

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW), a world leader in specialty glass and ceramics, announced today that Corning Gorilla glass has been designed into the Samsung Electronics Galaxy S, a newly released premium smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S features a four-inch super AMOLED display, while weighing roughly 119 grams in a slim, highly durable design. The enhanced super AMOLED display is enabled in part by using Corning Gorilla glass as the protective cover. Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is both scratch resistant and durable.

BJ 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 unique smartphone features by enabling a high-quality touch display."

Haeng Hee Lee, president of Corning Korea Company Ltd added, "Device makers are challenged with designing stylish yet durable products. 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."

More than 20 major makers of PC and handheld devices have already recognized the benefits of Gorilla glass by designing it into more than 225 devices, and more than 55 models will be released over the next six months.
