Corning, the glass maker, on Wednesday unveiled its newest concoction - Gorilla Glass 6 - that should survive repeated drops from heights of 1 meter (3.28 feet). It also performed better from higher distances than Gorilla Glass 5. The company claims that it is their toughest glass till date. "This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage".
Corning claims to have developed and engineered an entirely new material to address the challenge of multiple drops. 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.
Corning Inc., which makes the glass used in Apple Inc.'s iPhones and smartphones from Samsung Electronics Co., rolled out new technology it says is less likely to break when a device is dropped.
Corning's Gorilla Glass 6 should arrive on the market in devices within the "next several months". Gorilla Glass 6 is now "being evaluated by multiple customers" and will hit the market in the next few months.
