Corning’s Sapphire-like Glass Keeps Your Smartphone Scratch-free

You know sapphire screen is extremely scratch-resistant as explained in a previous post, but it’s both more expensive and more likely to shatter if your device falls.

The well known screen glass manufacturer, Corning may have found a way to combine the best properties of both materials, though. It recently teased Project Phire, a glass that’s as resistant to drops as Gorilla Glass 4 while touting scratch protection that “approaches” sapphire. The company isn’t saying much more about the technology at this point, but it should go on sale sometime later this year.

Corning hasn’t said which companies are interested in Phire, but it should be important for safeguarding both smartphones and wearables.

Phire potentially brings that kind of anti-scratch protection to lower-cost smartwatches, and makes it more practical for the large displays of modern phones.
