The official Xensation® α Launch


  • The beginning of a new era of cover glass
  • The concentrated energy of leading experts
  • The quantum leap towards unbreakable cover glass

SCHOTT unveils Xensation® α - a chemically strengthened lithium alumino-borosilicate cover glass with which the inventors of specialty glass compete for the best smartphone cover glass in the world. With this new glass type, the company is following in the footsteps of its founder Otto Schott, who invented specialty glass with borosilicate over 130 years ago.

Xensation® α

Our new high performance lithium alumino-borosilicate cover glass unites the chemical strengthening potential of lithium aluminiosilicate (LAS) glass with the scratch performance of borosilicate glass and a strong glass backbone as in glass ceramics.


Set Drop

Up to 100% improved drop resistance compared to market-leading cover glasses - especially on rough surfaces!



Scratch test

Less susceptible to scratches than standard aluminosilicate (AS) and lithium aluminosilicate (LAS) cover glass types.




Thanks to an improved ion exchange capability, an even better chemical strengtheing is achieved. This process strengthens the glass and protects it against drops and scratches.



 We invite you to participate exclusively in our  digital launch event for our new generation of cover glass, Xensation® α.
