South Korean Team Develops Material That Makes Your Smartphone Screen Unbreakable 1
This isn’t the first time we’re hearing of a self-healing
material for smartphones. Late last year, a team of Scientist at University of California Riverside invented a phone screen material that can heal itself.

Prior to this, if you drop your phone and the
screen shatters, you usually have two options: Get it repaired or replace the
phone entirely. But with this latest discovery, it shattered your two options and
present you with a third option…self-heal itself.

Phone screen scratches without solution may soon be a thing
of the past as a team of Korean researchers have developed a new
self-healing material called “Elastomer,” which can restore dents and cracks
within 30 minutes. Elastomer is high molecular substance that is able to
stretch and shrink.
During the cause of this research, the new material was able
to recover 80% of its tensile strength in just two hours during a test that
carried out cutting and rejoining. After six hours of the test, it even showed
tensile strength that was able to lift a 5kg dumbbell.

The team also disclosed that the new material can be used as a protective layer
on mobile devices and it automatically restore any outside cracks within 30
minutes. No matter the degree of scratches on the screen of your device, it
wills self-heal itself.

However, the use of self-healing materials for smartphone
screen maybe a long term project before it comes to reality.

Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.

The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.

From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.

Here are the following specifications from the teaser;

• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display

• Android 9 – the latest android version

• In-display Fingerprint sensor

• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM

• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight

• 3500mAh battery

I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.

What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
