Corning unveils new Gorilla Glass for mobile devices

July 26, 2016
Corning introduced its latest cover glass for mobile devices, which provides protection against breakage from everyday drops.

Responding to consumers' number-one issue with mobile devices—cracked cover glass from accidental drops—Corning (Corning, NY) introduced its Corning Gorilla Glass 5 cover glass, which is designed to provide further protection against breakage from everyday drops. Rigorous lab tests show that the glass survives drops up to 80% of the time when dropped facedown from 1.6m onto rough surfaces.

Consumers count on their cover glass to deliver damage resistance, optical clarity, touch sensitivity, and protection from drops. According to a recent global study, over 85% of smartphone owners have dropped their phones at least once per year and 55% have dropped their phones three times or more. Additionally, more than 60% of smartphone owners reported dropping their devices between shoulder and waist height.

Corning created the mobile-device cover glass industry nearly 10 years ago, and its glasses are used on more than 4.5 billion devices worldwide.
