Gorilla Glass is one of the most sought things when looking at the specs of a mobile phone. And from the budget to the flagship phones, this display protection is equally popular. Now we have a new iteration of the glass which goes by the name, Gorilla Glass 7i, specially designed for midrange and affordable smartphones. Here in this article, let’s learn more about Corning Gorilla 7i.

Corning Gorilla Glass 7i Overview:

Improved Strength and Resistance

The new Corning Gorilla Glass 7i can survive drops on the surface replicating asphalt from a height of up to one meter. This feat was achieved during the lab tests. To compare, an aluminosilicate glass can crack at a much lower height of 0.5 meters or less. Not just drop, but this new glass has also improved scratch resistance. Corning claims its strength to be two times that of lithium aluminosilicate cover glasses.
