Corning announces Gorilla Glass 6 to be stronger than ever

Corning's new glass will let your smartphone survive multiple drops

Today, Corning announced the release of Gorilla Glass 6; the latest iteration in their existing Gorilla Glass line of products. An all-glass body might seem fragile at first, but if Gorilla Glass 6 is as tough as Corning claims it is, future devices shouldn't have trouble surviving a few drops before the phone chasis is damaged.

According to a recent study that Corning has furnished, consumers tend to drop their mobile devices several times a year. With Gorilla Glass 6, the firm makes improvements over Gorilla Glass 5, offering not only the ability to withstand higher drops but also to survive multiple incidents. "Now more than ever, it's critical that the cover glass provides outstanding protection", said John Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning Gorilla Glass. Not only was the glass created to better resist drops, but it was also put through the paces to resist scratches from rough surfaces. Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions did not survive the first drop. It's able to do so because Corning chemically strengthened the material by using higher levels of compression over their previous release. "Moreover, with breaks during drops being a probabilistic event, the added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events".

As you can imagine, this glass cannot only be used for the front display but can also be used for the rear as well. In the past, the emphasis for smartphone displays has been scratch resistance, as early phone screens were prone to scratches from keys and whatever other junk you have in your pocket.

Corning said the new glass has entered production. Take a look at the video below for more details.
