Samsung developing Turtle Glass for smartphone and tablets

According to reports form South Korea, Samsung’s display division has recently issued a registration for a new display called ‘Turtle Glass’, which could be used as an alternative to Gorilla Glass.

Work in-house on the new protective glass is apparently underway and the final product is said to be used not only on high-end Galaxy smartphones but also tablets. Codenamed Turtle, the display panel coating could also have many applications for Samsung’s TVs, watches and other products as well. It could be that Samsung plans on using Turtle Glass for the new Galaxy S7.
It is also suggested that Samsung’s Turtle Glass cover will include bendable features, which aligns with an earlier report that the company is flirting with the idea of releasing a foldable smartphone in 2016.
The blueprint for the Samsung Galaxy S7 should be revealed soon – it could even be as early as January, following the 2016 CES in Las Vegas.
