Corning Announces Gorilla Glass 4
Ryan Simmons / 2 years ago
Corning has announced its next ‘version’ of Gorilla Glass that supposedly “survives up to 80 percent of the time”.
The new glass is touted to be 2 times stronger than any other competing glass product, and has been designed with intention of saving your screen from a big drop. They say it uses their “proprietary fusion draw process” to keep the glass thin, while ensuring its strength.
Gorilla Glass is undoubtedly the most popular type of strengthened glass used on our smart devices, they say that “over 40 manufacturers have designed Gorilla Glass into a total of 1,395 product models”.
Those manufacturers include Apple, who is notable for recently making attempts to move away from the product to sapphire. Its believed that project fell apart after its sapphire supplier, GT Advanced, failed to produce enough of the material to be usable in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
