Corning Gorilla Glass 6 will first appear on an Oppo flagship smartphone, not Samsung's Galaxy Note 9.

India, Aug. 6 -- US-based specialty glass maker Corning Inc. has already launched the next generation of Gorilla Glass, the Gorilla Glass 6. During its launch in the US last month, the technology giant did not provide any information regarding smartphone that will sport the newest tough glass. It was widely expected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will get the Gorilla Glass 6 ahead of the others due to its August 9 launch date, but tCorning has now announced that it will be Oppo's flagship device that will get to show off Gorilla Glass 6 first. The said smartphone was not named by Corning, but the company said that it is slated for release in the coming weeks.

According to rumours and the spate of leaks making the rounds on the internet, Oppo could bring the Gorilla Glass 6 to either the Oppo F9 or the Oppo R17. Last week, the Chinese smartphone-maker uploaded a poster on Twitter teasing the F9 smartphone with an unconventional 'teardrop' notch design. Meanwhile, a report claimed that Oppo is working on the R17 smartphone that is expected to have 10GB RAM. Both phones seem like potential candidates for Gorilla Glass 6.

"We are excited to have OPPO adopt Gorilla Glass 6. OPPO's new flagship model will provide consumers, who depend on their smartphone for every interaction in their digital lives, increased protection against multiple drops," John Bayne, Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass, said in a statement.

Oppo was one of the early and leading adopters of Gorilla Glass 5. It has used this glass in a variety of smartphones, including its recent flagship Oppo Find X and R15. "OPPO and Corning have always maintained a close working relationship, which has enabled a superior user experience for consumers through multiple versions of OPPO smartphones," added Andy Wu, Oppo Vice President.
