Corning Unveils Next Generation Gorilla Glass 6

Corning Unveils Next Generation Gorilla Glass 6

Corning Gorilla Glass continues to improve with the announcement of version 6 yesterday.

In lab tests, Corning claims that Gorilla Glass 6 survived as many as 15 drops from 1-metre height onto rough surfaces and was found to be up to two times better than Gorilla Glass 5.

Today, Corning announced the release of Gorilla Glass 6; the latest iteration in their existing Gorilla Glass line of products.

The offensive has triggered the single biggest displacement of the war, with several hundred thousand people uprooted. What's more, the bordering village of "Al-Sousah" also accepted the terms of negotiations with government.


According to the Corning's research, the average person drops their smartphone from a height of around 1.6 meters once a year.

Corning was also keen to note that the new Gorilla Glass 6 was also developed in order to meet the recent modern designs, which uses more than 85 percent screen-to-body ratio. Corning Inc. studied the pattern of potentially damaging drops, which have risen exponentially. Gorilla Glass may not be flawless and does tend to crack when you least expect it, but it's the best in the market and does a good job of protecting a phone against nasty drops that everyone inevitably subjects it to.

Apple's current iPhones, Samsung's Galaxy 9 and the majority of premium smartphones sold in the United Kingdom, all use the older Gorilla Glass 5. The debut of the new Gorilla Glass means that smartphone manufacturers will have a new glass to rely on since a lot of phones these days come with glass back, to support wireless charging.

Asked about yellow, he added: 'I knew it was a good chance but I didn't know how everybody else was going to ride. Britain's Geraint Thomas became the Tour de France's overall leader with an impressive victory on stage 11 .


In addition to traditional designs, Gorilla Glass 6 phones can come in reflective colors, and Corning is also working on a translucent glass that shows you the phone's insides as well.

Gorilla Glass SR+ got a sequel – Gorilla Glass DX and DX+. This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage. Availability: Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is now being evaluated by multiple customers and is expected to reach the market in the next several months. 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. We will likely see the first smartphones utilizing this breakthrough hitting the market before the year is out.
