When we hear that a smartphone display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, we get a hint that the device has a strong display. Corning has been a top name when it comes to display protection. Today, Corning has come up with another version of Gorilla Glass, which is its sixth version! The Corning Gorilla 6, as said by the engineers, has better resistance to falls and better survives drops.
Further, sources add that the Gorilla Glass 6 can withstand twice as many drops as the Gorilla Glass 5. How it is done is by its new glass that has a different chemical composition than Gorilla Glass 5’s. Hence, because of that composition, the company claims that the new version can withstand more than Gorilla Glass 5.
During tests, this sixth version of Gorilla Glass is said to have survived 15 drops from the distance of 1 meter before breaking. Thus, claims are that it is made from a completely re-engineered process, which makes it easier to increase the level of compression.
“Corning Gorilla Glass 6 improves upon Gorilla Glass 5 by surviving drops from higher heights, but, more importantly, has been engineered to survive multiple drops. This enables the Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage.,” -John Bayne (Corning Gorilla Glass vice president and general manager).
According to sources, Corning Gorilla has been designed into more than 6 Billion devices by more than 45 brands.
However, this new version of Gorilla Glass is in production now and it is being evaluated by multiple customers. After the tests will be over, it may take several months for it to be out in the market.
