1Q12 Touch Module Cost Breakdown

Wide use of shielding film with OGS can help improve the touch performance, while providing anti-breakage effect


After nearly six months of continuous development and improvements, the industry operators have gradually reached a consensus with respect to the basic structure of OGS. Firstly, because the glass strength is still an important consideration for most brand name companies, OGS still relies on chemically enhanced glass, sourced from AGC (Dragontrail) or Corning (Gorilla). Originally, the industry operators had intended to introduce soda-lime glass after a cost assessment. Although its cost is much cheaper, most brand name companies still abandoned the soda-lime glass because of safety considerations.
