Safety glass modern smartphones, including the iPhone, does not have high strength. It was expected that the new smartphone Apple will use ultra-strong sapphire glass, but that did not happen. It is possible, Apple has drawn attention to the development of Akhan Semiconductor, which announced a safety glass with diamond coating, superior to all on the market solutions.
According to the head Akhan Semiconductor Adam Khan, glass, which is called Mirage Diamond Glass, much stronger than competing solutions. Currently the company is negotiating with various electronics manufacturers. This year we will see the Mirage Diamond Glass only in one smartphone and some smart watches, said Khan. Whether we are talking about devices of the company Apple, is still unknown.
Prices of smartphones with diamond glass, no doubt will be in the premium segment. According to Khan, this material will make the screen of the smartphone 6 times stronger and 10 times harder than Gorilla Glass.
At the initial stage of Akhan Semiconductor is planning to produce a protective glass for one million smartwatches and printed glass for smart phones will be from 10 to 30 million units, depending on the output of quality products.
