Corning Gorilla Glass 6 with improved durability announced


Corning Incorporated has introduced its next-gen Corning Gorilla Glass 6 with better and improved durability for future mobile devices.

John Bayne, Vice President and General Manager, Corning Gorilla Glass said, “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 that the cover glass provides outstanding protection 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.

In accordance with a study, people are prone to dropping off his or her smartphones seven times a year. For this, Corning devised the Gorilla Glass 6 which is made up of an entirely new material to sustain the frequent drops.

Dr. Jaymin Amin, Vice President of Technology and Product Development, Corning Gorilla Glass and Corning Specialty Materials said, “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. Moreover, with breaks during drops being a probabilistic event, the added compression helps increase, on average, the likelihood of survival through multiple drop events.

Additionally, Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is designed to go hand in hand with current tech trends such as bezel-less displays, wireless charging and more.

Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is currently being evaluated by multiple customers, and is expected to reach the market in the next several months.
