Re: Type of display glass. Front 2.5D glass, is it gorilla?

I am a bit surprised by the answer of @MattForumsMngr. On various websites explaining about Gorilla Glass it is explained that no such thing as Gorilla GLas 2,5D exists. 2,5D just seems to mean that there is some curvature on the edges of the glass. It could be better or worse than Gorilla Glass, but the term 2,5  just doesn't say anything about the scratch resistance of the glass it seems. For example, see here: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/what-is-gorilla-glass-what-is-25d-glass and on many other sites (by Googling Gorilla Glass 2,5D). Additionally, also on the website of Corning, the producer of Gorilla Glass there is no mentioning of the existence of 2,5D Gorilla glass. Can you explain this confusion, or for example indicate what your confirmation is based upon. I am really curious, I am about to buy the One Vision, but would very much appreciate if the scratch resistance is as good as my current G5Plus (Gorilla Glass 3D).


Hi.

 

Here's a direct quote from the article you linked to, above [bolded by me]:

 

Many affordable smartphones are marketed as having 2.5D glass, instead of Gorilla Glass. 2.5D does not name a particular type of glass or a brand of glass. 2.5D is only a naming convention that is used for addressing contoured glass, which is any glass that has a slight curvature towards its edges. So, 2.5D glass can be Gorilla Glass or any other brand of glass, strengthened or not, as long as its edges are slightly curved and thinner than the middle of the glass sheet.

 

Hope this helps!

 

- Matt

I'm also about to buy this phone and I'm waiting for the official specs to be updated.
There is no mention of this phone on the Corning site https://www.corning.com/gorillaglass/worldwide/en/full-product-list.html and Motorola specs are still unclear about this.

Thanks for pointing this out. We'll see if we can get the phone added there.

 

The specs update on our website is coming -- takes a few days for the changes to get pushed to production.

Hi.

 

I have to make a mea culpa here. Our spec sheet was apparently incorrect. The front is not Gorilla Glass, as we thought. It is a different hardened glass from NEG. 

 

I am so sorry. Something went sideways in our specifications documents, which we rely on to confirm these things. There's no excuse for this kind of error.

Thank you for your honesty in admitting this Matt. I have understood that NEG is a Japanese company that develops glass similar to Corning's Gorilla Glass (e.g., Nokia 8.1 also uses it). However, it is unclear how the relative qualities are. 

 

Anyway thanks,

Arnold

The official specs are updated, but now it says that the front *is* Gorilla glass: "Front 2.5D Gorilla glass, rear 3D Gorilla Glass". https://www.motorola.co.uk/products/motorola-one-vision#specs
So, what is it, NEG Dinorex of Corning Gorilla?

Dang.

 

I was assured that I stopped the change in time. Guess someone didn't get the memo. Sigh -- we will get this rolled back.

So which NEG model is it? Here in Brazil we have the same problem. They just say it's Gorilla Glass.

Haha, In any event, glass does break, it just takes a certain angle of impact for it to break. So be careful boys and girls with your cell phones.
