Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 is one of the toughest glass on any phone in the world today that provides protection to the screen of your devices against scratches and breakage. Earlier as a part of continuous innovations, the company announced its upgrade, the Corning Gorilla Glass 5!
It's a tougher than ever glass that now has better scratch resistance and drop resistance than ever. It has up to 4x better protection against their competitors which is designed to survive even up to 1.6 meters high drops on hard rough materials 80% of the time.
Gorilla Glass 5 also delivers great optical clarity and touch sensitivity to compensate to your optimal viewing experience.
“With each successive generation of Corning Gorilla Glass, we have taken cover glass technology to new levels. Gorilla Glass 5 is no exception, extending Corning’s advantage in drop performance over competitive glasses,” said John Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning Gorilla Glass. “With many real-world drops occurring from between waist and shoulder height, we knew improving drop performance would be an important and necessary advancement.”
Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 will be commercially available on upcoming handsets and other devices later this year.
