Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is here to protect your future smartphone

John Bayne, the general manager of Corning's Gorilla Glass business, talks up the company's newest technology, Gorilla Glass 6, during an event Wednesday in Sunnyvale, California. In Corning's tests, the new Gorilla Glass composition held up to 15 drops on a rough surface before failing-up to twice as many times as the older formulation, apparently. It's able to do so because Corning chemically strengthened the material by using higher levels of compression over their previous release.

Corning said Gorilla Glass 6 has similar scratch resistance and other properties to the older glass.

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).

According to Corning research, damage due to drops are a primary concern of smartphone owners, so the company focused on improvements in that area for Gorilla Glass 6. Corning Inc. studied the pattern of potentially damaging drops, which have risen exponentially.

Gorilla Glass has been a mainstream feature of many smartphones since the launch of the first-generation Gorilla Glass back in 2008. Many new phones now ship with glass backs-which allows for wireless charging and is helpful for cellular reception-so the company also showed off new options for spiffing up phone backsides.

In addition to making the glass more resiliant, Corning also designed the Gorilla Glass 6 to work better with all-glass phones. An increase in this phenomenon would eventually lead to a faster and more robust adoption of Gorilla Glass which is already present in 6 billion devices.

Corning on Wednesday introduced its newest breakthrough in glass technology, Corning Gorilla Glass 6. This is where the newest Gorilla Glass panel helps. The weak resistance to scratches on most phones today means that users usually have to apply a plastic or tempered-glass screen protector on top of the glass for additional protection. We will likely see the first smartphones utilizing this breakthrough hitting the market before the year is out.
