New Gorilla Glass should turn 2018 iPhone display into a tank

As you might expect, everything is bigger and better this time around, which means that Gorilla Glass 6 is roughly two times better at surviving drops from 1-meter than its predecessor. "Now more than ever, it's critical the cover glass provides outstanding protection", said John Bayne, vice president and general manager, Corning Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass 6 is the next iteration of Corning's revolutionary product and promises to offer "improved durability" and "unprecedented protection against multiple drops".

This is where Gorilla Glass 6 comes in. Engineers at Corning have developed the protective layer after observing the fall patterns and frequency of drops that most modern smartphones typically endure in their lifetime. Scratch resistance qualities remain unchanged compared to Gorilla Glass 5.

Corning Gorilla Glass 6 is now being evaluated by multiple customers, and devices with the new cover glass are expected to reach the market by the end of the year. As the successor to Gorilla Glass 5 that was launched back in July 2016, the new development is touted to be designed with an "entirely new material" that helps withstand multiple drops. Not only was the glass created to better resist drops, but it was also put through the paces to resist scratches from rough surfaces. Data on specific smartphone models shows that companies have taken advantage of these improvements as they've become available - Apple's iPhone 4s had a 1.0mm layer of cover glass, while the iPhone 5 trimmed that to 0.9mm. While more and more handsets are starting to rely on glass for its exterior, the company is looking for new ways to mitigate the negatives that come with a shiny surface like scuffs and smudges. To improve the durability of glass for mobile devices, Corning has developed a new material which is created to withstand multiple drops. Phone makers can use Gorilla Glass and inkjet printing to achieve surprisingly convincing simulations of materials such as wood and snakeskin, not just visually, but also down to the texture. We will likely see the first smartphones utilizing this breakthrough hitting the market before the year is out.
