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

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced Samsung Display’s selection of Corning Lotus™ NXT Glass for its line of low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS), organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels.

Samsung Display, a global leader in display panel technology and products, selected Lotus NXT Glass as its backplane substrate because it enables higher-resolution, more energy-efficient displays. Samsung Display produces LTPS-OLED panels for its customers who subsequently use them in high-resolution smart phones and tablets.

Samsung Display’s LTPS-OLED panels using Lotus NXT Glass now power the Galaxy Note5, the newest product of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. The Galaxy Note5, introduced on Aug. 13, has a 5.7-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED display packed with rich multimedia and multitasking capabilities. Dimensionally stable Lotus NXT Glass supports higher pixels per inch, allowing the Galaxy Note5 to feature crisp, clear, true-to-life pictures.

Corning unveiled Lotus NXT Glass – its third-generation composition for high-performance displays – on June 1. It features outstanding total pitch variation – an integral element to panel performance that enables exceptionally high resolutions and vividly bright displays.

“We’re excited to build on our long tradition of collaboration with Samsung Display,” said Michael Kunigonis, business director, High Performance Displays, Corning Glass Technologies. “With the adoption of Lotus NXT Glass for the Galaxy Note5, Corning is helping Samsung produce stunning and vivid displays that meet the performance expectations of today’s consumers.”

In addition to Lotus NXT Glass, the Galaxy Note5 features Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 – the latest generation of the industry-leading cover glass now used on more than 4 billion devices. Gorilla Glass 4 offers improved performance in resisting breakage from drops on rough surfaces, making it ideal for consumer electronic devices.
