ASAHI GLASS has developed a super -thin glass for folding smartphones
The Japanese company ASAHI GLASS, which produces hardened glasses for smartphones Dragontrail, is preparing to present at the Display Week 2018 exhibition its new development – flexible glass that can be used in folding smartphones.
What it is
This is a chemically enhanced glass that has a minimum thickness – only 0.07 mm. Despite the thickness, the glass, as assured in Asahi Glass, is 80% stronger than similar chemically tempered glasses.
In addition, its maximum stretch voltage is about 1,200 MPa, and a possible radius of curvature is 2.5 mm, so it is great for the production of flexible smartphones.
They plan to present development at the Display Week 2018 exhibition, which will be held on May 23 in Los Angeles.
Recall, according to forecasts, in 2018-2019 the Samsung Galaxy X smartphone with a bending screen will be released, as well as a similar Apple device.
