Ultra-Hard Glass Could Put an End to Smashed Phone Screens


Ultra-Hard Glass – End to Smashed Phone Screens

A new kind of glass which tends to be stronger than steel putting an end to smashed phone screens has been developed by scientists in Japan. Due to a the latest kind of ultra-hard glass which is said to be almost as strong as steel, smartphone screen would no longer tend to get smashed.

Smartphone tend to have a big problem besides a short battery life and breakable touchscreens. Several of the smartphones either have cracked or broken screens and screen protectors apparently are not of much help. A survey was also conducted by Motorola and it was found that around one-in-five smartphone users were presently using a device with cracked or shattered screen.

However, scientists from the University of Tokyo and Japan’s Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute have developed a new material made by using alumina, which is an oxide of aluminium. Earlier efforts in using alumina in glass had been futile since it tends to crystallise on touching the sides of a container.

The research team however utilised oxygen gas in pushing the materials in the air and have used lasers to melt them, thus producing a glass which seems to be colourless, extremely hard and transparent.

Screens Thinner & Lighter

Besides being hard, the new substance also seems to be very thin, enabling mobile phone screens to become thinner as well as lighter than before. Reports of the results provided by the scientists in the journal Scientific Reports state that thinner and lighter glasses are desired for the fabrication of windows in buildings and cars and cover glasses for smartphones.

From the Institute of Industrial Science at the University of Tokyo, Dr Atsunobu Masuno informed the Asahi Shinbun newspaper that he along with his team hopes to commercialise the technique in the span of five years. The scientists are of the opinion that it could be the best since the earlier attempts to develop such a type of glass had failed. The ultra-hard glass tends to have various advantages besides being tough and very thin thus making the mobile phone screens thinner and lighter.

Shatterproof Display – An Assimilated System of Five Layers

Remarkable displays for the gadgets to capture the growing marker had been developed by tech companies.Displays always tend to give buyer first impressions which is a lasting impression and hence companies such as Apple and Samsung have invested on great screens. iPhone 6S series has a 3D touch with high resolution of 1,242x 2,208 pixels while the Galaxy S6 Edge+ has a remarkable resolution of 2,560 x 1,140 pixels QHD.

The phone has a curved display on both ends. Besides this, Motorola had launched a smartphone which has one of the toughestscreens and the device is called the Moto X Force which was launched last month. It has a shatterproof display due to an assimilated system of five layers which tend to absorb shock from an impact.

The embedded lens and display are warranted against cracking and shattering for a period of four years from the initial date of purchase. However, the phone is not shockproof or intended to withstand all types of damage from dropping.

Sharp Smartphone AQUOS 206SH 5 "Full HD

Sharp has unveiled AQUOS 206SH, a Smartphone 5 inch Full HD Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) which has several interesting features for Japan only. It is sealed against dust and water. The Japanese manufacturer Sharp has just lifted the veil on a new Smartphone running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean): The AQUOS 206SH. It seems that for the moment for the country of the rising sun at the operator Softbank, but it remains a high-end very interesting that has some rather welcome ideas model. A 5-inch screen Full HD consumes less than competitors

This Smartphone is certified to be dust-proof as well as water proof when it is immersed in water to a depth of one meter. Its screen is a model with a 5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) like some high-end models this year (HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia Z). For cons, the manufacturer makes a bold gamble to use a TFT panel "CG Silicon" it produces and offers lower than what is used in competitive consumption. The interior is fairly standard for such a Smartphone. We found a SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with a quad-core CPU at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU. The whole is accompanied by 2GB of RAM while the storage includes 32 GB and can be expanded to 64GB via a memory card reader. The connectivity is based on the 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and of course, a 4G modem is the game. Video of 13.1 megapixel sensor / (1080p compatible) takes place in the back while a second front has 2 megapixels (also 1080p).

But one of the most interesting points is that Sharp has decided to put a high-capacity battery in a Smartphone: 3070 mAh. Indeed, it has almost the same as in Samsung Galaxy Note II (3100 mAh). The bigger battery and a screen that consumes less than average are two arguments that the Japanese manufacturer to indicate that the AQUOS 206SH has a range of two days of battery power. As we mentioned, this high-end device is not yet announced in Japan through a single operator, Softbank, with availability for the next month. The rate has meanwhile not yet been mentioned. In the end, this announcement from Sharp seems more important to signal a point that their smart phones tend to become larger and larger, and more powerful in the process. Yes, but the autonomy that regress at best stagnates from one generation to another.

Sony Xperia Z

Introduced at CES 2013 held in Las Vegas earlier this year, the Xperia Z sensation among the public but not with experts and professionals. At first, the design is very successful elegance and sobriety, a screen of very good quality but also in terms of unique technologies that embeds HDR camera. The year 2013, the year of change for which Sony has seriously upset with the Smartphone market dominated by Apple and Samsung as Sony being the third. It starts well with the buzz caused Xperia Z. Indeed we talk across social networks, blogs, etc.

Xperia ™ Z kit includes incorporated battery, MH-headset Sony EX300AP, charger, micro USB cable for charging, synchronization and file transfer, and user documentation. Simplicity, sobriety, classic, is what emerges mainly at the sight of the Smartphone, a minimum of physical or sensory button. Power button remaining discreet and shortcut buttons integrated directly on the screen. There is no possibility for removing the battery unless it is all disassembled; aluminum and glass finish gives classic look. After it is a matter of taste, but we must admit that on the whole it is rather successful, it is not for me who says it is the success at the sight of the Smartphone. More quality Sony has not neglected here it is almost perfect. On the fluidity and speed, it is one of the best in the market. The large screen provides a viewing angle close to 170 °.

New on seal product and this is done at the cache ports which make access more difficult if you have no nails. No surprise, with its quadcore processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro and its graphics chip Adreno 320, associated with its large screen FULL HD or the function Miracast (mirror function on TV wifi).
The games run extremely well, even greedier. You have access to the large library of game virtual store PlayStation, Store Mobile offering games and other content specifically dedicated to Xperia Z. Benchmarks ... So for those who have no idea what good are these funny things, know that it is testing. Tests highlighting the computing power of the processor and graphics chip, the speed of Java in Web browsing, All this in order to note the software part of a Smartphone. This Android Smartphone is excellent in testing, beautiful graphics; it is indeed part of the best smart phones of the moment.

Sony has integrated its latest Exmor RS in its Xperia Z, like all smart phones, is difficult to achieve good record in low light, but it does not come out so bad compared to the competition. The high resolution of 12MP comes from its exclusive HDR sensor. It takes about late February, early March at a price of € 649 without subsidies. It will also support 4G based operators offering this network, NFC technology is also present. In conclusion, the Sony Xperia Z can cause a lot of change in terms of market share in the Smartphone sector; the battle will be very hard with Samsung and Apple. Each manufacturer of innovative, so innovation is good, but it must be that it is still useful to attract customers, gadgets and small changes are not enough to stand at top; there are other considerable factor to take into account.
