Gorilla Glass 5 from Corning to Better Withstand Drops
Corning today announced Gorilla Glass 5, a new breed of toughened glass made to survive the everyday perils of drops. Gorilla Glass has long been able to handle sharp impacts, but drops from waist height are the most common way to break screens. Corning said it designed Gorilla Glass 5 specifically to handle drops from up to 5.25 feet (1.6m) onto rough surfaces. Corning's lab tests show Gorilla Glass 5 is four times more likely (or up to 80% of the time) than competing glass when dropped face-down from shoulder height onto rough surfaces. Corning is already manufacturing Gorilla Glass and expects it to be sold on commercial devices before the end of the year.
