CORNING LAUNCHES ULTRA SLIM LIGHT AND FLEXIBLE WILLOW GLASS
The new Willow Glass is extremely thin at just 100 microns, but it manages to remain as tough as its Gorilla Glass counterpart. Corning says the new type of display will be used for both LCDs and OLEDs on smartphones, tablets and various other gadgets. Samples of the new flexible glass have already been sent to customers of the company, but actual products featuring it haven't been disclosed yet. It also remains a mystery whether the Willow Glass displays will bend when pressed like the resistive touchscreens of old.
Corning has even made a specialized video demonstrating how it manufactures the Willow Glass by the new High-Temperature Roll-to-Roll technology, which Corning says has been impossible until now.
