FO­CUS­ING ON IM­PROV­ING the dura­bil­ity for the next gen­er­a­tion mo­bile de­vices, US-based Corn­ing has re­leased Go­rilla Glass 6. Ca­pa­ble of sur­viv­ing mul­ti­ple drops, the mar­ket leader in cover glass for con­sumer mo­bile de­vices claims Go­rilla Glass 6 to be the most durable glass to date and is two times bet­ter than the Go­rilla Glass 5. Ac­cord­ing to a re­cent Tol­una con­sumer study re­port, on an av­er­age, peo­ple drop their phones seven times a year, with more than 50 per cent of the drops oc­cur­ring at 1 me­ter or be­low. Corn­ing has im­proved cover glass per­for­mance by de­vel­op­ing and en­gi­neer­ing an en­tirely new ma­te­rial to ad­dress the chal­lenge of mul­ti­ple drops. Dur­ing the lab test, on an av­er­age, the new Go­rilla Glass 6 sur­vived 15 drops from 1 me­tre onto rough sur­faces. The com­pany also states that 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," says Dr. Jaymin Amin, vice pres­i­dent of tech­nol­ogy and product de­vel­op­ment, Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass and Corn­ing Spe­cialty Ma­te­ri­als. Glass rear along with bezel-less dis­plays has be­come a norm dur­ing the last couple of years. With its op­ti­cal clar­ity, touch sen­si­tiv­ity, scratch re­sis­tance, ef­fi­cient wire­less charg­ing and en­hanced dura­bil­ity, Go­rilla Glass 6 is poised to en­able these new de­sign trends. Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass has been de­signed into more than 6 bil­lion de­vices by more than 45 ma­jor brands. And this new glass is al­ready in production but will take a few months to hit the mar­ket. "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. 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," says John Bayne, vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager, Corn­ing Go­rilla Glass.

The new Go­rilla Glass 6 sur­vived 15 drops from 1 me­tre onto rough sur­faces.
