  • Corning unveils Gorilla Glass 4 that, it claims, can withstand drops from 1 metre.

Corning, best known for manufacturing the glass that makes up the screens of touch-screen devices, has unveiled its new Gorilla Glass 4. Corning has been developing this glass so that it can withstand drops in the real world. The company claims that the new Gorilla Glass 4 can withstand drops up to 2X better than aluminium silicate glass displays.

In studies conducted by Corning scientists, they were able to ascertain that majority of smartphone screens get damaged when dropped on a rough surface from an approximate height of 1 metre, therefore they devised equivalent tests and created the Gorilla Glass 4. According to Corning, the newly developed glass material will be able to survive collisions with rough surfaces, like sidewalks. 

Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is used by many smartphone and laptops manufacturers and with the upcoming Gorilla Glass 4, the screen of all related forthcoming devices may be much more drop-proof than before.
