Samsung may be working on a competitor for Gorilla Glass

Samsung logoCorning's Gorilla Glass is everywhere these days, sitting on top of most smartphone and tablet display panels, protecting them while being quite sturdy in the process. There's also the less used Dragontrail Glass by Asahi, also boasting impressive toughness.

Soon though these two may be joined by a similar offering from none other than Samsung. The company has filed for a trademark for Turtle Glass with the relevant authority in its home country of South Korea.

The application for the trademark apparently states that it will be used for a protective tempered glass designed for phones, tablets, music players, cameras, and so on.

Samsung may be working on a competitor for Gorilla Glass

Samsung's been one of Corning's biggest customers so far, so if it is indeed going to start using its own solution in the future, it will be interesting to see in what position that will put the maker of Gorilla Glass.

As for the name itself, a turtle's shell is very tough, so that's where the inspiration came from. The world of protective glass for mobile devices is thus filled with animals, real or imaginary - gorillas, dragons, and now turtles.

While Samsung could of course be planning to use Turtle Glass on the Galaxy S7, it's also possible that this type of glass will be employed in the production of those foldable smartphones the company has recently patented. The first one of those is apparently codenamed Project Valley and we may see it hitting the streets next year.

eyebeenthereNovember 14, 2012 no audio outI just bought this <a href="http://ukmmlftrgmf.com">apnrtepaly</a> lovely product but had to return it because it lacks any type of audio output. I has neither digital nor analog audio output, not even a headphone jack. There is no way to connect an external sound system to the TV as you need to if using cable feed directly to the set. I see no other TV with this deficiency. The TV salesman at Costco had never noticed this and was, like me, shocked by the absence of any output connections. The comparable Samsung 42 has both digital and analog audio outputs. It costs $75 less.
