Samsung adopts Corning’s new Gorilla Glass for Galaxy S24 series

Gorilla Armor, the new Corning glass cover, may appear in a variety of upcoming devices, making its less reflective and more durable features available to everyone.

At Wednesday's Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung revealed that its new Galaxy S24 flagship smartphone will feature a new generation of Corning's Gorilla Glass, called Corning Gorilla Armor.

The company says the new smartphone case material reduces reflections by up to 75% and improves durability compared to earlier aluminosilicate materials, such as those found on iPhones or early Samsung phones. Additionally, Corning has created a new lab test using "Scratch Bot" to test how well the new material handles scratches caused by daily use and wear and tear. The company reports that the new Gorilla Armor is four times more scratch-resistant than earlier versions.

In addition, Corning claims that Gorilla Armor is made from an average of 25% recycled materials, which is certified in good faith by UL Solutions.

“Gorilla Armor combines Corning’s research and engineering prowess with Samsung’s consumer-centric design and focus on user experience,” David Velasquez, Corning vice president and general manager, said in a statement. “This latest product Innovations that address both the need for durability and our growing need for better optics – bringing the phone experience of the future into the present.”

Samsung said that Corning and Samsung have a 50-year history of cooperation and established a partnership in the television field in 1973. Gorilla Glass is used in countless smartphones, including Apple, Samsung, Sony, OnePlus, and more. Samsung also uses foldable Gorilla Glass Victus on its Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5.
