Gorilla Glass maker Corning launches Astra Glass for tablets and TVs

Corning


Corning
is currently attending Display Week in San Jose, CA.
During the three-day event, the company is launching its newest
product called Astra Glass, which will be geared towards
high-performance tablets, notebooks, and televisions.

One of Corning’s star products is
Gorilla Glass
which appears on many smartphones around the
world. The sixth
iteration of Gorilla Glass
will continue to be the
glass-of-choice for most 2019 flagships.

Astra Glass is designed for devices larger than smartphones.
It’s precisely engineered to enable the higher pixel density of
high-performance displays to come through. This will create
brighter, faster, and more lifelike images on future tablets,
laptops, and 8K TVs.

you find yourself eyeing a tablet with Astra Glass, that tablet
will likely be pretty expensive.

Han Yim — business director at Corning — promises that Astra
Glass will provide manufacturers with “low total pitch variation,
low total thickness variation, and low sag,” when it comes to
high-end displays.

With the recent launch of the
OnePlus 7 Pro
and its top-of-the-line
90Hz display
, high-end display technologies could be the next
big feature manufacturers focus on when releasing new products.
Corning is likely trying to come out ahead of that trend with
Astra.
