  • A new rumor suggests the iPhone 17 series could have a “super-hard scratch-resistant anti-reflective” display.
  • We’ve seen a variation of this display on the Galaxy S24 Ultra, which features Corning Gorilla Armor that performs better on drop tests and scratch resistance and is also shockingly good at minimizing screen reflections.

One of the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s highlight features is the display. It features the new Corning Gorilla Armor, which is one of the more noticeable upgrades on the phone despite Samsung underplaying it. This new display glass is said to be not only more durable but also features a coating that reduces screen reflections massively. It appears that this new trick has caught Apple’s eyes, as the iPhone 17 could feature a similar anti-reflection coating for its display.

According to a report from MacRumors quoting a lesser-known Chinese leaker, Apple has bought specialized display coating equipment from Japan and handed it over to China’s supply chain. This coating equipment will be used on future iPhones, presumably the iPhone 17 (as it is too late for use on the iPhone 16). Thanks to this, the iPhone 17 series is expected to come with a “super-hard anti-reflective” display that is “more scratch-resistant than you think.”
