Just look around. Staying connected with our lives runs right through our smartphones. They’re always at hand — which means they’re always at risk for potentially damaging drops. Plus, these devices are getting thinner and their surfaces larger, with many featuring glass-backs, as well. The rules have changed. To solve for this, Corning scientists engineered tougher and more durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6.
Subjected to a new and rigorous test methodology in our labs, on average, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 consecutive drops from 1 meter onto rough surfaces and is up to 2x better than Gorilla®Glass 5. Under the same test conditions, competitive glass compositions didn’t even survive the first drop. Gorilla Glass 6 also survives at higher heights than Gorilla Glass 5. All good reasons to better ensure you’ll stay connected today, and all the days to come, with a device featuring tough, durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
Gorilla Glass 6 is in production now and available to smartphone makers. It’s expected to reach the market in the next several months.
