Corning has revealed Gorilla Glass 5, the next version of the company's smartphone display glass. Corning claims that phones with Gorilla Glass 5 will survive being dropped from up to 1.6 meters 80% of the time.
Internal research done conducted by Corning showed that 85 percent of smartphone owners have dropped their phones at least once in the past year, and that two-thirds of those drops happening from waist height to shoulder height. So while previous versions of the Glass may have been strong, it wasn't necessarily as durable if you dropped your phone while pulling it from your pocket or while taking a photo. And rough surfaces are particularly brutal for delicate smartphones, so much of Corning's research and development of the new glass involved drops on rough surfaces and sharp contact damage.
Production of Gorilla Glass 5 has already started, according to Corning, and it's likely the first smartphones with its improved display will be shipping later this year.
