Wednesday, 15 June 2022, Mainz, Germany
- The new smartphone model vivo X80 Pro features SCHOTT Xensation® cover glass on the front display.
- Chemically strengthened Xensation® cover glass helps prevent cracked screens with its outstanding drop performance.
- The new smartphone model adds to a series of successful collaborations between SCHOTT and vivo.
SCHOTT, the international technology group and inventor of specialty glass, welcomes the vivo X80 Pro, a new premium model from the leading Chinese smartphone brand vivo. For this model vivo relies on a cooperation with the German sister companies owned by the Carl Zeiss Foundation: the high-performance cover glass Xensation® Up. from SCHOTT and a camera lens co-engineered by ZEISS and vivo.
Xensation® Up. is a chemically strengthened lithium aluminosilicate (LAS) glass that helps prevent cracked screens, as demonstrated by its outstanding results in drop performance testing. In set drop tests, Xensation® Up. can survive drops from twice the height of conventional aluminosilicate (AS) glass.
“Over the past several years, we have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with vivo. We are very happy to see new high-end models from vivo featuring our high-performance cover glass,” says Dr. Lutz Klippe, Product Group Manager at SCHOTT.
With more than 130 years of experience in manufacturing specialty glass, SCHOTT cover glass has supported vivo phones in a series of successful new launches. Xensation® Up. has been featured in high-end models including the vivo X51 and the vivo X60 Pro. Launched in April, vivo’s first foldable phone, the vivo X Fold, came fully packed with SCHOTT specialty glass, including an ultra-thin glass (UTG) from the company’s SCHOTT UTG® product range, as well as Xensation® Up. and Xensation® α (Alpha) cover glasses.
