Ohio Chemist Creates 'Unbreakable' Alternative To Smartphone Glass Coating

At this point, we've got some really amazing technology in our smartphones, and not just on the inside. Corning's continued work on their Gorilla Glass has made phone screens amazingly resistant to scratches, and as soon as someone manages to figure out how to make synthetic sapphire faster and cheaper, they'll be even better. But no matter how tough your screen is, it's still glass, and dropping it on the pavement is an almost inevitable recipe for a broken screen.

Corning Launches Willow Glass, A Slim, Flexible Glass That Makes Displays Bendier And Cheaper

Flexible displays are a great idea. Without flexible glass to go with it, though, some applications still remain difficult. Thankfully, Corning, the company behind Gorilla Glass (otherwise known as "the only type of glass you know by name"), has introduced a new flexible glass called Willow Glass. This new material is slim and strong, though we'd expect nothing less from Corning. The product will also allow manufacturers to pursue roll-to-roll processing which, if you're familiar with materials processing and manufacturing, you know is a very big deal.

Corning's New Lotus Glass Promises High-Performance, Durable Displays

Corning, the wizards behind Gorilla Glass, have done it again - earlier this week, the glass giant announced Lotus Glass, a new, durable glass designed specifically for high-performance electronic displays.

For a while now, Corning's Gorilla Glass has been a household name when it comes to mobile electronics, coming to be something of a standard, and synonymous with durability. Corning's announcement of Lotus Glass, however, is about to shake things up, offering a significant step up from the current go-to name in tough glass.

Galaxy Z Flip review: It's almost time to throw away your old, boring, non-folding phoneFolding phones are the future, but don't buy this one

The progress we've made with folding phones in just the last year is stunning. We went from teasing the concept behind a glass box to several shipping products in just about no time, culminating almost precisely one year later in this: the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It's a folding vision from the future, loaded with flaws and bent like a scythe in preparation of the Flat Phone Reaping. Even if you don't buy the Z Flip (and you shouldn't), your current phone's days are numbered.

Sony's smartphone design language has long stagnated, but last year, the company stepped up its game with the Xperia 1 and 10, coming with 21:9 displays and slightly more rounded corners than Xperia devices of old. Today, the company has released the follow-ups for these two phones, the Xperia 1 II and 10 II (speak: Xperia 1 mark 2), stepping up both handsets' cameras and resurrecting the headphone jack on the high-end device. It's also Sony's first to come with 5G.

Xiaomi has a series of sub-brands that operate in the low to mid-tier segments, earning it a dominant position in markets like India. In its home nation of China, the company shifts focus to its premium products that are usually marketed under Mi branding. Following a packed 2019, when we got to see a total of four smartphones make up the the Mi 9 line, Xiaomi has refreshed its flagship series for 2020 with a pair of devices. Earlier today, the company made the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro official in China following several rounds of teasing and leaks.

The Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung's answer to the Moto razr—here's everything we know about it

Samsung’s first attempt at foldables was at the receiving end of a lot of criticism, mainly due to a fragile build, which even catalyzed the recall of review units, as well as a luxury price tag that deterred potential buyers. Despite some initial hiccups, Samsung got very close to the half-a-million worldwide sales figure—a milestone to marvel at for a first-gen novelty. This bumpy ride taught Samsung some critical lessons and helped it double down its efforts on the follow-up Fold. The result, rumors say, is a foldable phone that better fits your pocket—both physically and pecuniarily.

Poco X2 announced with 120Hz display, Snapdragon 730G, and six cameras for around $225

Xiaomi’s spin-off brand Poco made a splash with its first phone by bringing a Snapdragon 845 chip to the $300 price bracket, reminding many of OnePlus’s early days. A year and a half after the Poco F1 was unveiled, the company is finally coming out with a follow-up called the Poco X2, initially only for the Indian market. The handset is basically a relabeled Redmi K30, which was announced in China alongside the $284 K30 5G in December 2019.

Moto 360 (2019) review: The direct-to-DVD sequel of smartwatches

The original Moto 360 was the first mainstream smartwatch with a round screen (ignoring the 'flat tire' at the bottom), which meant that despite its terrible internal hardware, it was definitely unique among a sea of ugly square smartwatches. Motorola followed it up with a sequel in 2015, and then in 2016, the company said it was done making wearables.

The new Moto 360 is almost entirely disconnected from its predecessor (it's manufactured by eBuyNow, not Motorola) and lacks the technological and design innovation that made the original watch so special. Much like a direct-to-video Disney sequel, there's not much to complain about, but there's also nothing unique or interesting to speak of.
