Gorilla Glass 6 Will Be Your Smartphone’s Most Durable Cover Glass Ever

The latest news about Gorilla Glass 6 that announced Corning on July 18, 2018 will be your smartphone’s most durable cover glass.It has become very usual phenomenon when we drop our expensive smartphones and break it, but just a minute, there is a solution such as Gorilla Glass 6. It was built on a decade-long legacy of delivering the toughest cover glass available for consumer mobile devices.

About two weeks ago we introduced you a new protecting case (Clever Phone Case) that protects your smartphones from breaking when it drops owing to its plastic legs.
And now we will introduce you another new protecting vehicle, that is the toughest cover ever.

“As consumers become more dependent on their smartphones, the opportunity for potentially damaging drops is also on the rise. Now more than ever, it’s critical the cover glass provides outstanding protection,” said John Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning Gorilla Glass. “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.”

According to their website on average, people drop their phones seven times a year, with more than 50 percent of the drops occurring at 1 meter or below.

So, Corning scientists have found the solutions; they developed Gorilla Glass 6 that in lab tests, it survived 15 drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces, and is up to two times better than Gorilla Glass 5. [Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions, such as soda lime and aluminosilicate, did not survive the first drop].

Gorilla Glass 6 is an entirely new glass composition that can be chemically strengthened to give it significantly higher levels of compression than is possible with Gorilla Glass 5. This enables Gorilla Glass 6 to be more resistant to damage,” said Dr. Jaymin Amin, vice president of technology and product development, Corning Gorilla Glass and Corning Specialty Materials. “Moreover, with breaks during drops being a probabilistic event, the added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events.”
