The new flagship iPhone 12 is packed with innovative and advanced technology like never seen before. Running on the powerful and fast A14 Bionic chip, across the new line-up Apple has introduced support for 5G network and Super Retina XDR display which protected by a new tougher and more reliable Ceramic Shield front cover by Corning.
Corning is an American multinational company that is leading the manufacturing industry with its specialty glass, ceramic, and other products. Since 2007, glass manufacture is one of Apple’s main suppliers. It is has given the Gorilla Glass to the smartphone industry and now offers a much more advanced and durable glass technology, Ceramic Shield. Apple describes it as:
“It’s a first in any smartphone, and it’s tougher than any smartphone glass.”
The iPhone 12 Ceramic Shield Front Cover – 4x more Durable
The iPad Pro (2020) inspired flat edge-to-edge design language of the new iPhone 12 in aluminum and stainless steel casings (iPhone 12 Pro) brings a fresh look to the smartphone. More importantly, the Super Retina XDR display with systemwide color management for color accuracy delivers an immersive HDR viewing experience in videos and more detailed photos with 2 times better brightness than the iPhone 11.
To protect the exterior and display from accidental damage, Apple has used 4 times more durable glass, the Ceramic Shield front cover in the new iPhone 12. The designed with new high-temperature crystallization technology, the new front cover grows nano-ceramic crystals within the glass matrix, increases drop performance by 4 times. This means that the new smartphone has 4times better durability than the iPhone 11 to absorb cracks.
The Ceramic Shield is made with cutting edge technology and materials:
- Nanoscale ceramic crystals are harder than most metals used in glass.
By controlling the type of crystals and degree of crystallinity, we developed an exclusive formula that maximizes the toughness of the ceramic while remaining optically clear. This was the breakthrough that made Ceramic Shield ideally suited for the display.
- Dual ion-exchange process is used on the front cover and the back glass to the covering scratch-resistant to protect from everyday “wear and tear.”
- 4x better drop performance is dramatically enhanced. It is the “largest year-over-year improvement ever for iPhone.”
The new flagship smartphone series is designed to deliver improved users’ experience with new hardware and software, innovative and advanced, features. It will run on the latest iOS 14 which offers new widgets, App Library, App Clips and much more.
