Glass Smartphone Back Covers

OPPO's New Reno8 Pro Features an Elegant and Slick Design

— September 10, 2022 — Tech
OPPO, a brand in the global smart device market, is aiming to revolutionize the smartphone back cover with its new innovative product. The Reno8 Pro was debuted with a "finely-tuned back cover made from a single piece of Gorilla Glass." Gorilla Glass refers to a range of chemically strengthened glass.

The inspiration for this Gorilla Glass smartphone back cover came as OPPO was "observing how users hold and interact with their phones." The brand resolved to build something trustworthy and functional but also with a slick and effortless design—a "burdenless device with a seamless cover," that is.

As an alternative, Gorilla Glass is performance-driven and different from traditional smartphone back covers which are made from two materials and are prone to have various annoying qualities—they allow dust to build up, for example.
