Smartphones have become the most prevalent product in our lives today. Just imagining a day without our smartphones is enough to make us feel delirious and disconnected from the world. As we document every step we make in the digital world, it’s easy to immerse yourself in the many features that each smartphone has to offer. However, most of us are still looking for device camera capabilities and a sturdy chassis to make sure our devices are ready to click and durable.
A recent Corning® Gorilla® Glass survey commissioned by TRUE Global Intelligence showed that 94% of Indian consumers believe that the number of camera lenses on a smartphone affects overall image quality. Furthermore, 63% of respondents said they prefer at least three camera lenses to capture the best photos and videos. Considering the top three characteristics that Indian consumers seek from their smartphones, image clarity, drop resistance and light capture were the most important.
Since 2010, the number of photos taken globally has increased from 350 billion to a projected 1.4 trillion photos per year. Mobile camera technology is regularly cited as one of the most important factors in consumers’ purchasing decisions.
What is Corning Gorilla Glass with DX / DX +
In response to consumer demand for high-quality photo and video capabilities, smartphone manufacturers have integrated advanced functions such as zoom, wide-angle lenses, and infrared sensors into their smartphone imaging feature set. To achieve this level of sophistication, the size and number of cameras on smartphones continues to grow, while the prominence of the lens surface area has increased significantly – dramatically increasing the potential for scratches and damage through everyday use.
In line with these growing needs of consumers, Corning, a global leader in innovation with unparalleled expertise in glass science, has launched Corning Gorilla Glass with DX and Corning Gorilla Glass with DX+ camera lens covers. Applying this technology to mobile cameras enables professional-level image capture with a unique combination of advanced optical performance, scratch resistance, and durability.
The team has spent a great deal of time making sure that durability and light transmittance are taken care of, to deliver an optimal performance ahead of regular smartphone camera lens covers, considering the aesthetics and challenges of many smartphone cameras that come with every device today.
Features and Benefits for Smartphone Manufacturers
In order for smartphone cameras to provide professional-quality image quality in all lighting conditions, it is necessary to increase the amount of ambient light captured and reduce reflection within the camera systems.
Corning is trying to solve two major problems with Gorilla Glass with DX products, which are the durability and scratch resistance that comes from Gorilla Glass and offering low reflections. Let’s break that down a bit more.
Adding a layer of glass to the camera unit essentially adds another piece of light that the camera has to deal with while taking photos or videos. A smartphone camera lens typically captures about 94-96% of the available light. This sounds like bad news knowing that you won’t be able to fully capture all the light available in your media. However, Gorilla Glass with DX products ensures that the viewfinder can absorb up to 99% of available light, giving you images that are closer to real life and how your eyes perceive things.
In addition, during a period of using our smartphones, the camera lens cover causes minute scratches that lead to flare, rotation or ghosting in your photos and videos. Corning Gorilla Glass with DX/DX+ provides lens coatings that take care of low reflections while also providing scratch resistance.
With the needs of photography and videography growing, more OEMs should consider going beyond just the best camera sensors or multiple camera lenses, as well as evaluating the right technology that can enable cameras to retain their performance capabilities by providing durability and maximum light capture. Therefore, you can focus on what is most important to you, seize the day and capture every unforgettable moment.
