Even iPhone 5, it's still not tough enough to bare the normal fallen down, and the result just all the screen is scattered, which is called Gorilla Glass, in CES 2013 Corning brings the latest Gorilla Glass 3, and will it make the future iPhone stronger than ever? Let's check it out:
Corning demonstrated the strength of its third generation Gorilla Glass at CES. The latest version of its damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronics is based on a completely new glass composition, with durability enhancements developed at the atomic structural level of the glass.
With its new Native Damage Resistance, Gorilla Glass 3 has been developed to provide improved durability to withstand deep scratches and cracks in the glass. As a result, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with Native Damage Resistance provides enhanced scratch resistance, reduced scratch visibility, and better retained strength once a scratch occurs.
Engadget recorded the video below that shows the company dropping a 130 gram ball to see what damage it could inflict on the glass. Corning said that production will ramp up at the end of Q1 and the glass should appear in devices by the second half of 2013.
