Thuraya XT-PRO the first satellite phone with Gorilla ® Glass on board.

Thuraya Dubai went the extra mile with this excellent sat phone.  One of the outstanding features onboard the XT-PRO is the Gorilla ® Glass protecting the display.

The Corning company started experimenting with strengthening glass using chemical compositions in 1960.  They obviously succeeded at creating a superior, tougher glass.

The new toughened glass found many industrial uses as well as sporting one: being installed in sports cars and other similar vehicles.  

Ever since Corning has built a phenomenal reputation as when it comes to the toughness of their screens.  Many of the worlds’ best-known brands now rely on Gorilla ® Glass to protect their display.

One of the major company to use the Gorilla ® Glass Screen Protector was Apple.  Apple asked for a thin tough glass and Corning delivered.  The iPhone excellent screen was born.

How the Thuraya XT-PRO Gorilla ® Glass screen is made

The toughening process takes place during a bath of molten alkaline potassium salt.  Ion exchange takes place and the result is glass so tough that it can withstand so much more punishment than normal glass, or even toughened glass.

Another aspect of the company is its rigorous demand for quality.  A strict quality control process takes place throughout the manufacturing process.

It makes perfect sense that Thuraya would choose a high-quality screen for their first Super Sat Phone.  The Thuraya XT-PRO is built tough, tougher than most other phones on the market.  

The XT-PRO is rated to   I am certain that the adopting of Gorilla ® Glass has contributed to that high standard.

Most assuredly it cost more to fit the Thuraya XT-PRO with the tougher and superior quality screen.  

This has not reflected on the cost of the sat phone, but it has certainly gone a long way to establish the Thuraya XT-PRO as one of the most desirable satellite phone on the market today.
