Corning Gorilla Glass 3D announced for smartphones with curved displays and wearables

The popular Gorilla Glass maker, Corning has announced that it can now make protective glass in 3D shapes. Which means that the new Gorilla Glass will be able to protect the curved display devices and newer wearables like high-end smartwatches.

In the press release, Corning stated that:

β€œCorning’s 3D-forming technology can achieve precise tolerances and high throughput on a platform that is more economical than alternative two-mold forming methods. This technology uses Gorilla Glass of uniform thickness, assisting designers to introduce thinner and lighter devices and leverage the emergence of conformable displays for mobile and wearable applications.”

We are already having some rumors pointing towards different brands working on curved display based smartwatch, so we won’t have to wait much longer to see the first product featuring this new technology.
