Gorilla Glass sheets have been installed, according to Corning, in 4.5 billion devices worldwide since they began to be manufactured. The latest version, Gorilla Glass 4, was presented two years ago and brought twice the strength of its predecessor.
There are many mobile device manufacturers that use designs Corning to ensure a higher level of resistance of their respective models to accidents, bumps and falls. And now these manufacturers will have a new screen technology that advantage.
It is Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the latest innovation from Corning, which is already available to customers of the American brand and should appear integrated into commercial products before the end of the year.
“Corning has a history of 165 years delivering life-changing innovations. Gorilla Glass 5 is the latest example, “John said about this release Bayne, vice president and general manager of Corning Gorilla Glass. “With each successive generation of Corning Gorilla Glass, we have taken the glass cover technology to new levels. Gorilla Glass 5 is no exception, extended the lead to Corning in respect to performance falls glass of competition “.
Gorilla Glass is estimated that 5 is capable of withstanding impacts 4 times better than rivals crystals rough surfaces. The tests have made their creators leave resulted in a success rate of 80% for falls from 1.6 meters.
“With many falls occur in the real world from a height ranging from waist to shoulders,” says Bayne, “we knew that improve performance for fall would be an important and necessary step forward.”
