OK, that might be a bit of an overstatement – I still want my car to be made out of metal, just in case someone decides to drive into the side of me. But Corning’s second vision of a future world made of glass certainly looks awesome.
Gorilla Glass, especially version 2.0, has earned its reputation for durability and strength. But reputation only goes so far and Samsung wants something more. That's why Cornign and Samsung are joining forces to develop a newer, better, more scratch-resistant AMOLED screens.
Looks like Google's latest flagship Android phone is slightly less awesome than we thought it was -- no Corning Gorilla glass, just 'fortified glass'. Of course Samsung didn't actually speak about the glass originally, we just hoped-and-wished it was furnished in Gorilla. [Twitter via Phandroid via Android and Me via Engadget]
