Corning Lotus NXT Glass Chosen for Samsung Display’s Flexible LTPS-OLED Line

Corning Incorporated announces Samsung Display’s selection of Corning Lotus™ NXT Glass as the carrier glass for its line of polyimide (PI) low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels, which today power the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.

Both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ contain a flexible OLED panel, which requires a carrier glass to support the panel’s polyimide substrate during a demanding manufacturing process.
 
Samsung Display, a global leader in display panel technology and products, selected Lotus NXT Glass as its carrier glass due to its industry-leading dimensional stability, pristine surface quality, and its high and uniform UV transmission, which allows for efficient laser removal of the panel from its Lotus NXT Glass carrier.
 
Samsung Display produces flexible LTPS-OLED panels for its customers, who use them in smartphones and tablets with the latest curved displays. Samsung Display’s PI LTPS-OLED panels enabled by Lotus NXT Glass are most recently included in the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the newest products of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
 
The Galaxy S8 and S8+, introduced on March 29, push the boundaries of traditional smartphones with their design. The Infinity Displays on both the Galaxy S8 and S8+ take up nearly the full front of the device to provide an optimal viewing experience. The Infinity Display’s sleek dual-edge design provides the appearance of an overflowing surface, breaking down boundaries and expanding new opportunities, one edge at a time.
 
“Together with Samsung Display, we are enabling consumer electronic devices with leading industrial design, while improving the user experience,” said Michael Kunigonis, business director, High Performance Displays, Corning Glass Technologies. “Lotus NXT Glass, the product of Corning’s world-class glass formulation and fusion capabilities, helps panel makers compete in the dynamic mobile LTPS-OLED market. We optimized Lotus NXT Glass as both a carrier glass for flexible OLED panels and as a glass substrate for rigid OLED panels. We’re excited to keep enabling the future of handheld OLED devices.”
 
In addition to the use of Corning Lotus NXT Glass, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ also feature Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5, the latest generation of Corning’s industry-leading cover glass. Gorilla Glass 5 raises the bar for protection against drops onto hard and rough surfaces, making it ideal for consumer electronic devices. Gorilla Glass 5 continues to deliver the damage resistance, optical clarity, and touch sensitivity for which Gorilla Glass is known.
