Samsung Galaxy Alpha features Corning Gorilla Glass 4
Samsung made the Galaxy Alpha official back in August and the 4.7-inch handset that measures only 0.26 inch in thickness became available the next month. Now we find out from Corning that this Android smartphone is also the first one in the world to feature Gorilla Glass 4 protection, a technology which has just been officially unveiled earlier this week.
Corning East Asia's general manager and president Cliff Hund says "Device makers want to go thinner without sacrificing damage resistance. Samsung is not only meeting these requirements, but is on the cutting edge of smartphone design. The Galaxy ALPHA is the culmination of our close collaboration with Samsung." Next to the Galaxy Alpha, Corning has just revealed on their website that Galaxy Note 4 also features Gorilla Glass 4.
According to the official press release, more than 3 billion devices using Gorilla Glass have been manufactured since the introduction of this cover glass in 2007. The four Corning Gorilla Glass' iterations unveiled so far protect the screens of 1,395 product models from more than 40 manufacturers.
