We've been waiting to find out which manufacturers Corning would woo with its new Lotus Glass, and it's just announced that the first will be Samsung. Corning and Samsung have signed up for a new joint venture in Korea with the aim of supplying stronger, more durable OLED displays for Samsung Mobile Display and the broader Korean market. Corning says that its Lotus Glass is far more resilient than other glass substrates, allowing for more delicate and complex panels to be constructed — that's good news for Samsung, which recently debuted some impossibly thin OLED panels at CES 2012. There's no word on when the new displays will appear, but with Samsung pushing for new OLEDs to arrive later this year, it might not be a long wait.
