Will your next phone have a screen made of DIAMONDS? Firm claims new type of shatterproof glass could be released as soon as 2019
Shattered phone screens could soon become a problem of the past.
A U.S. smartphone components manufacturer is in the process of developing the first-ever screen to be made out of diamonds.
Akhan Semiconductor, which is working with a phonemaker to test the glass, said the technology could be released as soon as 2019, according to CNET.
The company hasn't said which smartphone company it's working with, but added that it's also working with a screen protector firm and could expand into other devices, such as fitness bands, in the future.
